Happy Monday! I hope you had a nice weekend! Last week we went on a mini vacation where we were just a block away from the beach. Several mornings we got up and walked down to the beach to watch the waves and the surfers. I wish I could wake up to that every single morning. It’s so calming and beautiful. While we were away, my husband, Mark, and I also celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary. It was really nice getting away for a few days.
When we got home from our vacation, I created today’s card which uses an oldie but goodie die, Springtime Impressions, which includes a beautiful die-cut butterfly.
I paired it with our Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper and Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I absolutely love this Designer Series Paper. It’s gorgeous!
I used the stamp set Parcels & Petals for the sentiment and inked it up with Blackberry Bliss. I cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Dies and then cut a Blackberry Bliss scalloped oval using the Layering Ovals Dies. The Stitched Shapes Dies are very versatile because they coordinate with the Layering Circles Dies, Layering Squares Dies and Layering Ovals Dies.
The smaller layer of cardstock and Designer Series Paper was popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals as well as the Blackberry Bliss scalloped oval. Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals were used on the back of the butterfly to give it dimension too!
When you purchase the Parcels & Petals Bundle, you’ll save 10%. It includes the Parcels & Petals stamp set and the Perfect Parcels Dies. Be sure to use the bundle item number 151107.
