Polka Dots, Butterflies & a Give-Away

Watermarked Photo 2 (2016-01-06-1123)

No challenges associated with this post, however, just a happy set of notecards.  I really had a good time making this set.  Polka dots truly make me happy!  I will need to remember this when I’m having a bad day…just pull out some happy dotted DSP and everything should around…I will let you know if it works!

Since I am waiting on my order from the new Occasions catalog to arrive, I pulled out the polka dotted DSP from the Designer Series Paper Stacks.  The colors are Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Pear Pizzazz.  All of these colors also have coordinating 1/4″ cotton ribbon. These are note sized cards using the Whisper White note cards.  The only stamping are the sentiments from the Tin of Cards stamp set.  I use these sentiments all the time.  The envelopes flaps were given a little DSP to complete the set.

After stamping the sentiment on a 2 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ piece of white cardstock, I used a die from the Butterfly Thinlits to cut the butterfly.  Then I gave the butterfly a little bling by adding a few rhinestones for the body.

  25. Did you layer the plain paper under the white cardstock before die cutting the butterfly? Thanks

    • First I covered the front of the notecard with the polka dot DSP then I layered a 2 1/4 x 4 1/4 piece of white CS over a 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of colored CS then cut through both pieces with the die allowing the polka dots to show. Hope this helps.
