Swallowtail feel goods - two cool

CASEd from Mary Brown at Stamper Camper's Corner.

I am loving the soft and pretty look of this beautiful "thinking of you" style card.  It features the gorgeous Swallowtail butterfly as the subtle background.  It's a nice change from using this huge butterfly as a bold focal point every time.

I inked the Swallowtail in Crumb Cake and stamped off onto scrap paper once before stamping onto the Very Vanilla card front. 

The opening edge of the card is lined with a 1" x 5-1/2" strip from the Tea For Two Designer Series Paper. 

The Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon is adhered onto the front with Sticky Strip tape.  TIP: Place the Sticky Strip on the card first, then add the ribbon and trim the ends.

My favorite parts of the card are the Flower Trim rosettes, dabbed into the Primrose Petals ink pad, then layered on top of some Old Olive leaves punched with the Bird Builder Punch. I love how the flowers mimic the roses in the designer paper.  TIPS: I adhered the leaves with the 2-Way Glue Pen and the flowers with the Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

The Feel Goods sentiment was colored on the rubber with Old Olive and Primrose Petals Markers before stamping.  The style of the font really coordinates with the shabby chic look!

The design looks just as lovely as a horizontal card, too.  Quick and pretty—I think my class is going to love this one!

  1. Well, I’ve been able to resist the giant butterfly – until now! This card design is just too lovely! Darn you. hahaha!
    Ok, off I go to order – mumbling under my breath. Truth is, I just ordered new business cards with a beautiful butterfly on it, so I really SHOULD have this stamp!

  2. Beautiful cards! Love them both! I am gonna have to case them if you don’t mind! My Mom’s birthday is Friday! I think I will do one for her! Thank you for sharing these awesome cards with us!
