Best of Butterflies—Pink “Hope” Butterfly


Best butterflies pink - two cool

Another Best of Butterflies club card today, this time featuring the lovely butterfly that was from the retired Strength & Hope set.  I loved that set!  The original stamp set was designed to be in support of breast cancer survivors, so I thought I'd keep the hope alive by designing a pink card. 

It also gave me the perfect opportunity to feature the soon-to-retire Pretty In Pink and Regal Rose colors.

I started by die-cutting a Large Scallop Edgelit border on the Pretty In Pink card base.

Then, I embossed the edge with the coordinating Delicate Designs Texture Impressions Folder.  TIP: Always cut first, then emboss.  Otherwise, your texture will get flattened with the second pass through the Big Shot.

I added a 5-1/2" x 3/4" strip of Chocolate Chip card stock on the inside for contrast. 

The card front was also layered with some Regal Rose striped Designer Series Paper and Chocolate Chip Scallop Dots Ribbon.

I stamped a Bring On The Cake sentiment in Chocolate Chip on 2-1/2" x 3" Whisper White card stock.  It's layered on a 2-5/8" x 3-1/8" piece of Chocolate Chip card stock. 

I stamped the butterfly on the main panel in Regal Rose, then again on scrap paper, which I cut out and popped up with Dimensionals.

On this vertical version, I flipped the Delicate Designs Texture Folder, so it was de-bossing.  Which is the "right" way to use that one, anyway?  Usually, the "top" of the embossing is on the side of the folder that has "Sizzix" printed on it.  I think this is the "wrong" side, but they are both so pretty!

  1. Just want you to know that I’m not tired of seeing butterflies at all and that I think you should just keep making cards and projects with them. I love all the butterfly stamps and punches that Stampin’ Up has out right now!!
