Happy Birthday (Botanical Butterflies DSP)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, I recently shared two cards inspired by a project on page 9 of the first Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  The catalogue sample featured a clear acetate box filled with Coastal Cabana cards and secured by a belly band of the super cute butterflies which had been cut out from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  It was so pretty.

At the time I mentioned how I thought you could select any colour from the patterned paper to use as your base card and then make a set of cards.  I thought they’d look so lovely.  One of my friends suggested I should do this and so today I am sharing another couple of cards based on the original design.  This project illustrates so perfectly one of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! – the way everything coordinates so beautifully!  It really takes out half the guesswork, especially if you don’t feel confident with your colours.

The first card features Grapefruit Grove.

Here’s the card…

Isn’t it lovely!  Next up was Highland Heather.

 Here’s the Card…

Aren’t they beautiful!  The only change I made with this card is that I used the Subtle embossing folder to add some more texture to the base card.  I totally love this look and now I have a cute set of cards to gift!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!

So very pretty! Your coloring is perfect, and so is your fussy cutting. That grapefruit grove color is rich and lovely. Keep on making cards my friend; these are just two more in a long line of beauties that you’ve made. xo

I didn’t colour this – it is all the patterned paper. Super easy card! 🙂 I reallllly like that Grapefruit Grove too. I hadn’t used it much before now and I think it will become one I turn to again and again. 🙂 Thanks, friend! 🙂
