One Card, Two Ways – Beautiful Butterflies

Stampin' Up! Big Shot Die - Beautiful Butterflies

 

It isn’t often that I can walk into my craft room and walk out 10 minutes later with two cards. And I like both of them!

That is the beauty of the Big Shot die-cut machine. It cuts shapes and makes backgrounds in no time and helps me create cards and projects effortlessly. Before I ordered the Big shot,  I wasn’t sure I would ever use it. Wrong! The Big Shot is probably the best stamping investment I have made.

For these cards, I layered Whisper White cardstock on either Melon Mambo or Tempting Turquoise cardstock and then added a third layer on top in the same colour. This top layer was embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder.

Next, I layered a 1-3/4" wide strip of designer series paper – Razzleberry Lemonade or Island Oasis (from the Summer Mini) onto a 2" piece of Whisper White cardstock.

After cutting out the butterflies with the Big Shot and the Beautiful Butterflies bigz die, I layered a coloured butterfly onto a Whisper White butterfly and added a white flower button from the Button Latte pack with a mini glue dot. 

Finally, I stamped the "thanks so much" greeting from the Three Little Words stamp set in the corresponding colour of ink and punched it out with the Word Window punch. I then layered it onto a Modern Label punched piece and then a piece created with the Movers & Shapers Punch Window die that is slightly larger. The greetings were attached with dimensionals.

So, do you have a favourite card? I really can’t decide.

But I know that when stamping is this fun and easy, it’s gonna be a great day!
