So…in celebration of Mary’s project, I used the beautiful Butterfly Thinlet on my card today!  I was going for a white tone-on-tone look, but I just couldn’t get away from putting some color on here.  So, I think the soft Crisp Cantaloupe was a good compromise.


Butterfly Thinlet

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock, folded in half.
  • On top is a 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Sahara Sand.
  • The next layer is 3-3/4 x 5 Something Borrowed Designer Paper…I LOVE that DSP…every pattern in that package is gorgeous!
  • I used a 3/4 x 4 strip of Whisper White and stamped the greeting from the Sale-A-Bration set, Simply Wonderful with Tuxedo Black Ink.
  • I cut the butterfly with the Butterfly Thinlet from Whisper White and added some of the flower trim in the Artisan Embellishments kit to the body!


Really…a very simple card, but the DSP and butterfly really add a lot of WOW factor to it!

Beautiful and elegant card. Love this background stamp, works so well with this butterfly as both are so delicate. I see a case in my future.
