I don’t know about you but I am so ready for Spring!
While it isn’t spring outside yet, this card is a little bit of spring indoors. Here, I used the Shades of Spring designer series paper and the Beautiful Wings embosslit die to create this pretty card. Can you see the textured impressions on the butterflies? They are sooo pretty!
And so easy to make with the new Beautiful Wings embosslit die. As you can see later in this post, this die creates multiple butteflies perfect for using on cards and pages. The butterflies can even be layered together for a different fun look.
I added Certainly Celery satin ribbon and a greeting from the Well Scripted stamp set to finish the card.
This stamp set is perfect for making lots of any occasion cards. I recommend that when you sit down to stamp that you make cards in multiple of 4. And when you use a greeting set like Well Scripted, you can add the greeting only as you need a card. If you have a few of these cards all ready to go, you can stamp, punch and adhere the greeting just before you give the card to a friend. I try to always have a few cards ready to give that can be adapted for any occasion.
