I am on the Poppystamps blog today with this clean & simple card made extra special with the beautiful background, the fun font of the sentiment and the detail on those butterflies!
I love background dies that give detail but still look clean and simple. These Pinpoint Half Rings can work for so many types of cards - they could be fun (think fish), sweet (think rainbows), or elegant as it is a classic design.
I was inspired by the "cardmaker's postage stamps". (Did you know there's a US postage stamp specifically for square or for lumpy, bumpy cards!) The first one included a butterfly and now there's a new one with a different butterfly. So I pulled out the Postage Square die and sponged a little bit of blue in the center so the butterfly popped!
Check out the Poppystamps for more pictures and more details.

There are few items in my studio I love more than cover plates, Kim! What a beauty this one is! A gorgeous place to begin, and a beautiful finishing touch!ReplyDelete
We'll be saying hello to the Monarchs before we know it!
I love that beautiful background too Kim and I adore the postage stamp you made with the subtle blue background and that gorgeous butterfly. Vicky xReplyDelete
