This was the first chance I had to use the SAB set, Bliss and what fun I had with it! I stamped the damask image in Pale Plum onto Very Vanilla cardstock.The Bliss butterfly was stamped in Pale Plum onto Vellum cardstock and hand cut. I attached him with a glue dot and hid it under 3 small basic pearls. With his wings bent up, it looks as if he just alighted there.
The Tasteful Trim XL die made these large and lovely Pale Plum scallops from some retired Halloween paper--yes that's the "B" side of Halloween paper! But look at that Always Artichoke seam binding ribbon! This is such a cool trick for easy scrunching. Just snip the end of the ribbon and pull at the end until you expose the middle threads. Then grab onto one of the center threads and PULL! Instant gathered ribbon! I laid down a row of sticky strip and tucked the ends under--voila!
I liked the look of a non-sentiment front so I left it as is but added a sympathy-appropriate sentiment from Word Play to the inside along with another Pale Plum butterfly and a strip of Always Artichoke patterned paper from a retired hostess pack.
I hope you'll check out the rest of the design team's inspiration and will think about joining us at The Color Dare this week!
