CCMC Preview Week Day 4!

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic week so far! Spring break is going way too fast! I can't believe that I have to go back to work on Monday! But I have spent all my money so I guess it's time - lol! Right now I'm looking forward to spending a great week with my parents! 

Today's card was inspired by my friend Becky! She had made a card similar to this one for our shoebox club a few months ago. I loved the way she used the vellum to soften the card so I decided to change it up a bit and make my own!

  • Card base is Whisper White cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and folded in half
  • On another piece of Whisper White cut at 4" x 5 1/4", stamp the hexagon background stamp image from Butterfly Basics stamp set using Smoky Slate ink
  • Stamp the leafy image using Old Olive ink
  • Stamp the sentiment using Rich Razzleberry ink
  • Cut a piece of vellum at 1 1/2" x 5" and flag the bottom
  • Adhere to stamped panel by putting adhesive just at the top of the vellum piece and folding it over to the back to adhere then adhere the panel to the card base
  • Cut a butterfly from Rich Razzleberry card stock using the Butterfly thinlits and adhere to card with dimensionals making sure to place the butterfly so that part of the vellum gets adhered to the card
  • Thread a piece of linen thread through a gold basic metal button and tie a bow then adhere to butterfly
