Some of you may have noticed that in the past few weeks I haven’t shared a free tutorial on Saturday. I love providing free tutorials but it just came down to not having enough hours in each day to get everything done. I had to reassess and make the hard decision to discontinue them, for now. I will still continue to share here on my blog and I hope that my cards will inspire you to create. Thanks for your understanding!

Today’s card was made specifically for a special someone who’s going through a difficult time right now. It features the stamp set, Inspired Thoughts, Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and the Double Oval Punch.



Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper


I started with a base of Pool Party cardstock and scored it in two places so the card would open in a fun way (you can find the measurements I used below the Supply List). I added a piece of Basic White cardstock to the inside of the card. Then I placed two pieces of Basic White cards inside the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder and ran it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. I adhered the two pieces to the front of the card. 


Inspired Thoughts



I cut another piece of Pool Party cardstock and adhered a piece of Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper to the front.  I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the upper half of the cardstock and adhered it to the top panel. I stamped the sentiment onto Basic White cardstock in Pool Party ink using the stamp set, Inspired Thoughts. I cut it out using the Double Oval Punch, added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered it to the top panel.





To complete the card, I added a large Brushed Brass Butterfly below the sentiment.
