This was my favorite make and take for my Premiere party last night - I just love this Technique! I was inspired by a card by Rita Holmes - which she made with three Christmas trees in place of the butterflies. She is such an inspiring stamper!
I started with a Sugar card and I tore the bottom edge off. Save that piece! Then tear off about an inch wide strip. Stamp and color your three pieces - whatever they may be. Lay you card flat and then place the first strip you tore in place where it would go on the front of the card - lining it up with the bottom edge of the back of the card. Place a pop dot on the top and bottom of the opening - where you want to place your middle item. Then stick it down on top of the dots. Repeat for the remaining two items. Then layer a piece of colored or patterned cardstock inside the card - where the opening will show thru.
I used the butterfly from the new Papillon stamp set - it is just lovely! We colored them in with copic markers to match the Bellini Pattern paper used on the inside of the card. We also stamped the greeting with Celebrate in Style with Bellini ink. I topped it off with a Piece of Orange Satin ribbon.
Bellini Butterfly : Y17, Y38 YR68
Aren't they lovely??? Oh the coloring possibilities!
It is such a fun card - and really easy to do! My Premiere party last night was SO much fun! I gave away over $300 in prizes! We also started a new round of Hostess club that will start next month and run thru July. I still have open spots if you are interested email me!
I am off today to Junction City - we are having a llittle Valentine Make and Take at my friends shop Hobby Haven. It should be a super fun day!
