I had so many ideas swirling in my brain but not a lot of time to put them down on paper. In the end, I went with the one that kept floating to the top and here's what came to light:
I've always loved the Swallowtail butterfly stamp from SU. It's big and bold but oh, so pretty! I wanted to play with some of the outgoing In Colors and used Lost Lagoon/Mossy Meadow on the front card and Hello Honey/Blackberry Bliss on the back card.
This card isn't complicated at all but it did take a little bit of figuring to get the background butterfly lined up with the one in the foreground. First,I stamped the butterfly on the card base. I then stamped it on the window sheet of my Stamp-a-ma-Jig and lined it up over the stamped image on the card base. I slipped the center panel (3.5" x 4.75") in between the window sheet and the card base where I wanted it to be. Holding the window sheet and the center panel, I slipped out the card base and then stamped my butterfly on the center panel. I popped it up on dimensionals, pierced the corners and lined it up. I think I did pretty good for just winging it!
I refrained from adding some glitz and glam with sequins but couldn't resist the call of some Wink of Stella painted onto the butterfly. Can't go wrong with Stella!
You also can't go wrong by checking out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of our Paper Players design team. These gals knock it out of the park every week and I just love working with them! If you're inspired to join in the fun...and why wouldn't you be?--just be sure to do so before our challenge closes on Friday, April 22nd at Noon (PST). Thanks for stopping by!
