OMGosh……this one got by me! Stampin’ Up retired this set and I never got to use it until now. Has that happened to you? I was going thru my stamp sets the other day and happened to come across this one and noticed I had not even taken it out of the box and have not done one thing with it. So I had to knock the dust off and put it to use at least one time. *smile*
I did put it all together with this year’s colors, Pear Pizzazz and Pacific Point. The flower is a mounted Boho Blossom punch. The center is made from Daffodil Delight card stock. Remember in an earlier post about flower soft? I only needed just a small amount, so I got that paring knife out and scraped on some Daffodil Delight card stock until I was able to get all that I needed. A little added texture to the butterfly came from using my 1/8 and 1/4 inch circle punches. Textured card stock was used in P. Pizzazz and P. Point while Whisper White smooth card stock provided the background for the stamped areas.
You know I was thinking as I was using the swirl stamp “the time to be happy is now…the place to be happy is here” could actually be used on a party invitation. I decided to hang on to this set for a while longer. *smile*
The inside ~
I saved the larger butterfly for the inside. I stamped it twice, cutting out only the two larger wings and mounting them with dimensionals on the first stamped butterfly. Following suit with the butterfly on the front, I used the 1/8 and 1/4 inch circle punches for the wings and antennas.
