More Baja Breeze and sneak peek

After this card I will give the Baja Breeze paper a rest.  It’s hard not too use it when you like so well. *smile*  Again, I paired it with the Springtime Designer Series paper.  Hope you like it.


I stamped the butterfly onto the Springtime DSP, using the butterfly punch, I punched it out and punched one from a piece of Always Artichoke.  Added a couple little half pearls that happened to be a match for the Baja Breeze in between the two layers on both sides.  The butterfly trail is made from a piece of olive green hemp that I had on hand and tacked it down where I wanted the trail to flow and ran it upward for the body and antenna (piece of the hemp that came unraveled).

I then took two scallop circle punches and used it in the lower right hand corner, giving a see thru scalloped circle with a border. 

  • With the small scallop circle I punched one from the DSP.
  • With the 2 3/8” scallop circle I punched the same hole making the border. 
  • Using the small scallop circle I punched a hole in the lower right hand corner of the card base.
  • Placed the border over top of that scalloped hole. 

The border can be seen here ~


Remember that first piece of punched DSP made with the small scalloped circle punch?  I used it on the inside to be seen thru the scalloped hole on the card front.

As seen here ~


I used the stamp from the Punch Bunch (Sale-A-Bration) stamping it in Always Artichoke, then stamped again in Baja Breeze, cutting out the flowers.

I did distress the DSP edges with Baja Breeze, added an Antique brad on the ribbon and used the rounded corner punch on two of the corners.

Supplies needed ~ all are SU! unless otherwise noted

  • Card stock – W. White, A. Artichoke, B. Breeze and Springtime DSP
  • Stamps – Punch Bunch and Flight of the Butterfly
  • Punches – 2 3/8 and small scallop circle and rounded corner punches

Baja Breeze - I can never get too much of it. Especially love it with Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip or Early Espresso. Wonderful card!
