Crop a 4 1/2 x 3 piece of Whisper White card stock using the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the butterfly die from Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies.   Watch this Stampin’ Up! video for more ways to use the Springtime Impressions Thinlits Dies.

Using the Stamparatus stamp positioning tool (learn more here), stamp “thank you” from Abstract Impressions Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape ink as shown.

Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Adhere the center of the butterfly to the Gorgeous Grape card stock below with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Add two Gorgeous Grape Glitter Enamel Dots to the butterfly.  Stampin’ Up! Glitter Enamel Dots are adhesive backed and have a beautiful sparkle.  The collection includes coordinating colors Gorgeous Grape, Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana.

Use the envelope liner die from Beautiful Layers Thinlits Dies, the Big Shot and a Gorgeous Grape polka dot pattern (Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper) to crop a note card envelope flap.  Adhere to the outside flap with Snail Adhesive (or adhesive or your choice).  Watch my video for tips on using this die with the note card envelope flap.
