Butterfly card

Just looking around different challenge blogs, I created a card yesterday while the girls and I were downstairs before supper.

I found this Ribbon Carousel Blog and there challenge this month is to use Ribbon and have a Spring themed card.

It was perfect for me because my card had a Springy butterfly and some beautiful orange polka dot ribbon.

My card and matching envelope.

Here lately I have really been decorating the envelopes to match the cards and also the inside of the cards and I have been having alot of fun doing this.
The stamp and die set I chose were from the Stamps of Life.

Seriously go check her out, the prices are AWESOME and shipping is only $1.00 per item.

The inside is decorated to coordinate with the outside.

The bottom picture is how I made the trail for my inside of the envelope.

I used Stampin up ink in Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Cajun Craze.

I stamped them in that order, lights first then darkest to help when the inks overlapped each other.
I really have to suggest using a Mouse pad under your paper and using a stamp press like a Fiskars Stamp Press.

My images have been coming out much nicer using these 2 tools.
Its perty.

Up close view, I used dimensional to make the butterfly stick out.

I have been stamping on Stampin Up Whisper White paper. I am loving that paper, Images are clean and crisp.
 My supplies.

The yellow card base is from Recollections Paper as well as the white inside. The butterfly pattern paper that also has some pretty flowers is also from a recolection paper pad, the size in between a 12X12 and 6X6.

My inks are from Stampin up Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight.

I used my Cuttle bug to Die cut my images. I corner rounded the top edges with my 1/2 inch side of the  Corner chomper tool thingy.

My orange polka dot ribbon was from Hobby Lobby.
