This weeks challenge I have to thank Dee Dee Tibke for the great idea for the card. I seen it on a page in Facebook and wanted to try the technique. It turned out so nice I am using it for my Technique Class for this month. I hope they all like it!
Another thing that I noticed right away is that this goes perfectly with a NEW Suite that came out in the Catalog named Tropical Escape as shown below.
With this Suite you can get a Bundle with the Stamp set and the Thinlits and SAVE $$$.
As you can see in the Suite picture it also has fabulous DSP! Of course that is what my focus was going to be for this challenge.
For the base of the card you I started with Granny Apple cardstock and cut this to 5 1/2 x 10 1/4. Then you score this at 3" and 7 1/4". I used the Classic Label punch to make the hole for the Butterfly. The Butterfly was cut out throught the Big Shot using the Springtime Impressions Thinlit. Below is the Thinlit set that also comes with a Stamp set to save you $$$$.
If I say so myself I LOVE the Stamp Set as well.
I finished off the inside with a Pc of Whisper White cardstock and a Pc of the DSP to give it a little something. Of course you can finish your card anyway you desire.
If you would like the direction for this card I would be more then happy to share the directions that I did up for my Technique Class. Just shoot me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
