Stampin' Up! Australia - Color Coach Card #111 - Butterfly Basics

Soft Suede #2



Welcome to another Artful Stampers blog hop!

I was inspired by another Color Coach combination....Soft Suede, Blushing Bride and Bermuda Bay.

I'm using some vintage Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper...back from when it was a brand new In Color! The stamp set is Butterfly Basics with the coordinating Butterfly Framelits Die - I also layered one of the gorgeous resin flowers from the Artisan Embellishment Kit onto my butterfly.

You probably can't see it in the photo, but there is a narrow strip of Bermuda Bay sequin trim under the sentiment panel and I went over the Bermuda Bay butterfly die cut and the Soft Suede butterfly in Wink of Stella.....both features give a lovely shimmer and sparkle to the card. 

Because the butterfly sits off the edge of the card, I made a large envelope from some Soft Suede DSP using the Envelope Punch Board....such a great little tool for when your cards are an odd size or bulky. :)

Here's our sketch....

  1. Love really love how you used the sequin trim, brilliant idea.

  2. Love these colours together just beautiful

  3. Pink and brown always produce a soft elegant look. The butterflies provide a extra element to this beautiful CAS card. The sequin trim works in well too.
