This is the card I posted off to Michelle at the Card Grotto to thank her for the lovely Christmas gifts she sent me. The 4" square card base was made with Rich Razzleberry CS. I used a pretty lacy butterfly stamp which I inked in VersaMark and then heat embossed with Rubellite pearly embossing powder - it gives a gorgeous pearly effect! I stamped and embossed again, cut out the butterfly and added some colour by brushing lightly with Pretty in Pink ink and a wet paintbrush. I glued the butterfly body flat but popped up the wings. I used Petite Oval Nestie die to mat and layer and the Word Window punch for the sentiment. I layered the Word Window shape onto the beautifully shaped Bistro Label die - one of the gifts from Michelle! I added some sparkle by way of a few rhinestone jewels.
I cut a Very Vanilla panel for inside the card, added a stamped flower spray and a sentiment cut out with the SU! Modern Label punch.
I stamped a flowery image in the corner of the envelope and added a name label to finish off.
