Forever Begins Today – SIP #57

Happy Friday….hope you have a wonderful weekend planned.  It is supposed to be extremely hot here in PA this weekend.  But I’m certainly not complaining…because I LOVE summer!

Today’s card is my entry for the Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…this was fun!


Black and White cards really lend themselves to more formal cards like wedding cards, in my opinion…so that’s just what I made.

This is a 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ square card.  The card base is Whisper White thick cardstock.  The white layer is embossed with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.

The Flourish thinlits make for a beautiful trail for the Butterfly, which is cut using both the Bold Butterfly framelits and the Butterflies thinlits.  I really like how these two sets coordinate to make very intricate and beautiful butterflies.  The sentiment is from the Suite Sayings stamp set.  I cut it out using the Decorative Label punch.  You will notice that it doesn’t look exactly like the punch.  I cut it down to fit the card better.  It’s almost like having another punch.

The inside sentiment is from the Floral Phrases stamp set and is perfect for a wedding card.

Although I created a wedding card here, this card could easily be used for so many other occasions.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you’ll come by again soon.

Take care,
