Caribbean Butterflies

Here's a card for Taylor's TECC65 sketch.



The clear flower in the center of the vellum butterfly and the Prism Frosted Teal CS were from my April Key Ingredients Subscription Kit. The Celebrate sentiment, clear tiny twinkles, caribbean satin ribbon (love love LOVE Taylor's Satin ribbon!), and Spellbinders butterfly Impressabilities are all available at Taylored Expressions.

All of the white panels and the vellum panel were dry embossed with the butterfly Impressabilities. The white panels were then sponged with Cool Caribbean ink.

*Edited Pic*...Here's the new picture of the inside of the card. When I originally posted this a.m., I didn't include the plain white/kraft panel....the textured panel wouldn't have been easy to write on, would it? Hehe! Anyway, now there's a smooth panel to write on when it comes time to mail out the card.


Here's a close-up showing what's up on Taylor's 1/16" foam tape (same height as SU Dimensionals...but it comes in a gigantic roll!):


I used my Spellbinders Impressabilities in my Cuttlebug with the following "sandwich" (from bottom to top): A Plate, B Plate, Tan Pad, Paper, Impressabilities Template, B Plate, Chipboard (one or two sheets of chipboard depending on the thickness)

It's going to be a GORGEOUS day today...going up in the 80's believe it or not...WOW! We're headed to our 4-year-old's t-ball practice this morning so I'd better get a move on. Enjoy your day!!

This is so pretty! I love Kraft CS with any design - with this beautiful aqua color and white - JUST STUNNING! I love that you finish the inside of your cards. And I'll definitely be checking out that dimensional tape. I "snack" on Stampin' Dimensionals - so it would be nice to have a huge roll.
