Happy New Years Eve DAY! This year will be behind us in a flash – and 2021 will be ushered in. Are you doing ‘hoopla & horns’ to celebrate? Whatever you do, just be safe, ok.

Today’s card is a new item – available to customers VERY SOON – Jan 5! The Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog, along with the Sale-a-bration catalog go live Jan 5, 2021. If you do not have a demonstrator, I’m happy to help. Here’s the bundle I worked with for this card.

Floating & Fluttering Bundle – available Jan 5, 2021

Just look at those fun images… this was my first play with this bundle and I’m anxious to do more. Notice there are no sentiments, but the images are wonderful. And that rectangle die – so sweet! And here’s the card I made.

Floating & Fluttering – #1

Supplies used:

  • Forever Greenery DSP – I appreciate how the leaf image on the DSP has the same shape as the leaves in the die cut, and that’s why I chose this paper
  • Garden Green card stock behind the DSP (and on the inside as well)
  • Thick Whisper White card base
  • Basic Black card stock as a liner to the focal image
  • Bumblebee card stock for the strips
  • Several inks: Petal Pink & Calypso Coral; Bumblebee & Pumpkin Pie; Soft Sea Foam & Garden Green; Tuxedo Black Memento.
  • 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots

I began by stamping the image from the Floating & Fluttering stamp set (all one stamp!) in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock. The largest butterfly and the full butterfly are both done by stamping first in Petal Pink, then the detail stamp in Calypso Coral. The half butterfly was first stamped in Bumblebee (lightly) then the detail in Pumpkin Pie. I then die cut it with the appropriate die from the Fluttering Dies. I mounted it with dimensionals and adhered it to a Whisper White base. This was then adhered to Basic Black card stock with liquid glue. I added sevaral 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots for a bit of interest – and the colors bring out the colors of the butterflies. It was at this point I went searching in my stash for a DSP that would look really nice as a background – and found the Forever Greenery DSP. I adhered it to Garden Green card stock with liquid glue, then onto the Thick whisper White card base, again with liquid glue. Alittle more detail was needed so I began playing around with various ribbons and card stock – and finalized on the two Bumblebee strips. There y were adhered with a bit of liquid glue in the center of each strip and the focal image was adhered with dimensionals, centering it just so. And the front was complete.

Floating & Fluttering, inside – #2

For the inside I used the same image as the front of the card just on the corners – and only a portion of the image. This was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Whisper White. I decided not to color these images, but you certainly could. This was mounted on another panel of Garden Green card stock and adhered with liquid glue to the card base. FINIS.

Floating & Fluttering – #3

For the envelope I covered the flap with the same Forever Greenery DSP with liquid glue. Then I stamped a portion of the same stamp as the card front on the envelope itself, in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. I colored only the one butterfly by stamping first in Soft Sea Foam ink then the detail in Garden Green ink. Love this!

Hubby really liked this card ๐Ÿ˜Š… One of the nice things about this is that it can be used for any occasion at this point. But if I wanted, I could add a sentiment. I like having a card without a sentiment – it covers a lot of bases!
