  • Stampin up fine flourish butterfly closeup To create the colorful butterfly, I heat embossed Stampin' Up!'s Fine Flourish stamp (a single stamp from the Occasions Mini, p. 42) in black on White Vellum Card Stock.
  • Stampin' Up!'s Stampin' Write Markers in Lavender Lace, Barely Banana and Certainly Celery added quick color to my fluttery friend.
  • Color blocking gives a nice background punch but still keeps this card simple.  My Corner Rounder Punch helped define the corners.
  • Envelope Envy?  Check out my Lining an Envelope Tips & Video.
  • The "heartfelt thanks" sentiment is from the Sweetheart stamp set.  Yes, yes, yes.  This set and the Sweet Treat Heart Cups are still available but not currently in a Stampin' Up! catalog.  Click here for more Sweetheart details and how to order.  Sweetheart images below.
