Make Your Projects Stretch For You!


The card I'm sharing with you today comes to you after taking a second look at the decor project I posted yesterday and thinking to myself . . . "I like this so much; what else could I make from this?"  It's pretty easy to take a large project and turn it into a smaller one!  I decided to use the idea to make a card . . . you could easily do one in each of the new in colors in the paper stack!


Fresh Fig Move Me Butterfly Card


Fresh Fig Move Me Butterfly Front


Dimensions & Directions:

  • Fresh Fig cardstock . . . 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2" and folded for card base
  • Whisper White cardstock . . . 4" x 5-1/2" (cut two . . . one for card front and one for insert)
  • Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack . . . 3" x 4" (if pattern in paper is directional, make sure that it's going the right direction)
    • Adhere along bottom of one of the Whisper White pieces
  • Fresh Fig Ribbon . . . 5" piece
    • Lay over top edge of Fresh Florals Designer Paper and attach ends to back of Whisper White
  • Adhere Whisper White layer to Fresh Fig card base for front, adhere second Whisper White inside card
  • Whisper White cardstock for stamping . . . 2-3/4" x 3"
    • Stamp background with Fresh Fig Ink (I used the splatter and flower from the Touch of Texture stamp set)
      • To achieve the lighter shade of ink, stamp off on scratch paper once before stamping on your project
    • Stamp sentiment in lower left corner with Fresh Fig Ink
  • Fresh Fig cardstock for mat . . . 2-7/8" x 3-1/8" (if you want the mat slightly larger, cut just a hair larger than the measurement)
    • Before adhering, use the Big Shot to cut the large and tiny butterflies from the Move Me Thinlits (both pieces of the large butterfly at once) from the center of your mat
    • Adhere only the body of the butterfly to your stamped piece (Optional:  stitch the body with your sewing machine)
    • Adhere stamped piece to your mat
  • Adhere matted piece to card front with Dimensionals
  • Adhere tiny butterfly to corner of card insert

How easy was that?  I want to draw your attention to the greeting set that I used . . . Tabs For Everything.  I'm finding the wide array of sentiments and fonts really fun and useful!  I love how tiny they are and how easily they can blend in to any project!  Go ahead and add this one to your wish list . . . and remember it's part of a bundle with the Circle Tab Punch. (item #145364)  Just look at all those sentiments and fun images! Tabs For Everything Images
