I received my first (notice I say first) Occasions Mini order on Monday and finally got to play with the new things yesterday. I also received my Sale-a-bration goodies! They are not on this card but they are coming to my classes this month. I was just so happy with this card that I couldn’t wait to share it. These butterflies are made with my Beautiful Wings embosslit for my Big Shot. I was a latecomer to the Big Shot trend but I can’t tell you how happy I am to have it. Just imagine the possibilities for these little guys!! No more small designer paper scraps that you can’t use. Seriously, look at those little butterflies. Just put your little scrap in the embosslit, roll it through and you look like a creative genius!!
Ok, I’m done going on and on about these little guys (at least until my next card with them). Now just look at the “Happy Birthday” stamp on the card. This is from the Occasions Mini set called Well Scripted and the font is so pretty. I can see lots and lots of cards with this…my family will too, I think! The only “work” I had to do on this card was a little sponging on the Apricot Appeal butterflies to help them pop out. I used mini glue dots to attach them and left a wing free on the larger ones. This wonderful sketch was created by Amber Hight over at Splitcoast. All the other details follow this post. All products Stampin’ Up!
