Make It Beautiful With Paper Scraps!


I'm posting from Phuket, Thailand today!  Something super exciting happened this morning. . . those of us attending the incentive trip were treated to a preview of the upcoming holiday catalog!  While I cannot share any photos of the products, I can tell you that what I saw is amazing!  Can you say mega suite?  That simply means that there are more coordinating products than ever in several of the product suites!  I am so excited for you to see it!


The card I'm sharing today is one I designed for a card swap.  My inspiration came from an idea I saw on Pinterest.  One of the things I enjoy doing is using an idea that was not created with our products and recreating it with Stampin' Up! products.  I used the colors from our Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack and the Move Me Thinlits to make this one.  I'm very pleased with how it turned out!


You Move Me Butterfly Card 2


Dimensions & Directions:

  • Thick White cardstock . . . 4-1/4" x 11", score at 5-1/2" and fold for card base
  • Whisper White cardstock . . . 2-3/4" square
    • Use the Big Shot to cut the largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits
      • Stamp sentiment in upper left corner with Memento Black Ink
  • Basic Black cardstock . . . 2-3/4" x 2-3/4"
    • Use the Big Shot to cut out largest scalloped square from Square Collection Framelits
      • Cut butterfly from Move Me Thinlits from center of scalloped square  (This saves paper!)


You Move Me Butterfly Cutting Tip

  • Adhere square to card front with Dimensionals
