Pretty Greetings No-Stamp Cards

Here's a quick & pretty card that requires absolutely no stamping at all!  And, it's also a fabulous design for using up coordinating Designer Series Paper scraps! 

Pretty greetings - mint hello

Pretty Butterflies—I die-cut four butterflies with the Butterflies Thinlits from coordinated patterns in the 6×6" Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack.  The stamper that I'm CASEing actually did a fancy, in-laid technique with these die-cuts, but I simplified it for our class, and you get just about the same look.  I just adhered the butterflies with SNAIL to a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White, then trimmed off any wings that stuck out over the edges. 

Background Basics—I matted the butterfly layer onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black card stock than popped that layer up with Dimensionals onto a Mint Macaron card base.

Sweet Greeting—Rather than adding a stamped sentiment, I tried the new Greetings Thinlits for a lovely die-cut hello in Basic Black.  I ran the card stock & Greetings Thinlit through the Big Shot four times and had absolutely no trouble getting the smaller words out of the thinlit.  No wax paper needed!

Finishing Baubles—To finish the card, I added a few White Perfect Accents.  Have you seen these?  They are like little white dew drops. Very subtle and shiny!  You get 75 in a package; 25 each of 3 sizes.  Love them!

I love how quickly this card design comes together!  So easy and fun to do with ANY of the designer series papers!

Two Cool—For my second card, I used a combination of Calypso Coral patterns from the same Pretty Petals DSP.

Sweet Sentiment—I tried the "thanks" die-cut word from the Greetings Thinlits on this one.

My "Last Thursdays" class attendees will be able to choose which colors of butterflies and which die-cut greetings to feature on their cards.  Too Cool!
