I get so wrapped up checking out other people's blogs and finding samples on stamping websites that I almost forget the awesome resource that I'm holding in my hands several times a day…the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalog!
I mean that's why they call it an Idea Book in the first place! There are over 300 examples of cards, scrapbook pages and 3D projects inside that book just waiting to get our creativity flowing!
One Idea Book sample I'd been wanting to CASE for a while now is shown on page 218 and features the Designer Frames Impressions Folder. I used that idea to create my Two Cool cards below…
What a fun card to make! Not only does the rectangle embossed Designer Frame make it look very professional, but you can't go wrong with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit! It's too much fun to pick out all the cute little butterflies, all embossed with fun patterns! It's no wonder that this embosslit is one of Stampin' Up's top sellers!
I didn't do much different on these two cards, only very subtle things. The Parlor Prints Baja Breeze inked background is little lighter on the first card, simply because I didn't burnish it as much. I also sponged a little Baja Breeze ink on the crumpled up First Edition Designer Series Paper before adding it to the first card. And, the butterflies are different colors.
Other Details: I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch on the side and added 1/16" Hole Punches inside each scallop. I wrapped the card with White Baker's Twine and added Pearl Jewels to each butterfly. Curly Cute is the set with the "thank you" sentiment.
I love this card because it's cheerful and can be used for many different occasions! The perfect style to have on hand at all times for sending a quick card to a friend!
It's also another fabulous example of fun ways to use the Big Shot! Remember, you only have until October 31st to get a Big Shot for FREE when you sign up to become a demonstrator. (And, if you already have the Big Shot, select $100 in FREE product!) See the promotion page for details.
