This card makes a statement in Whisper White and just a pop of Wild Wasabi.  It features oodles of new products from the Stampin’ Occasions Catalog.  See all new Occasions Catalog products HERE.

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • No question about it.  A product favorite from the Occasions Catalog will be the Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  I used the medium size of three butterfly dies in the set.

  • For detailed dies like this butterfly, I highly recommend using wax paper between the die and the cardstock and run your sandwich through the Big Shot back and forth several times.  It makes a BIG difference in getting a perfect butterfly and bits that are easy to remove.
  • I attached the 4″ x 5 1/4″ negative portion of the die cut with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card base.
  • The butterfly was adhered to the card base with a couple glue dots and “floats” through the opening.

  • A marvelous leaf pattern from Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper (new in the Occasions Catalog) lines the Stampin’ Up! Whisper White Medium Envelope.
