Today’s card required using certain colors, black, orange, and reddish purple, named by Stampin’ Up as Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, and Rich Razzleberry. Normally, I would think of Halloween, but my idea morphed into a butterfly card.

Butterfly Wishes


I began with a card base of Thick Whisper White Cardstock, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. This was layered with Basic Black Cardstock, 3 1/4″ X 4 3/4″. Next, a layer of Whisper White Cardstock, cut with an Ornate Layers Die, the one that’s approximately the same size as the Black Cardstock.


Next, I embossed the white layer with a Greenery Embossing Folder. It left a nice space to stamp my butterfly from the Butterfly Wishes Stamp Set. I stamped it in Rich Razzleberry Ink, and colored it with a Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend.


The sentiment, “It’s your time to shine,” is from the Daisy Lane Stamp Set, stamped in Memento Black Ink, and cut with the smallest Stitched Rectangles Die.

Before attaching the sentiment with Mini-Dimensionals, I added some black dots, using a stamp from the Whale Done Stamp Set.


I was inspired by TGIF.
