Hello everyone! It’s Wednesday and that means we are more than halfway through the week! How is everyone today? I’m good, I finished my swaps for my meeting on Thursday which makes me a happy camper. Today’s post is a 3 x 3 card perfect to attach to a gift or leave on a co-workers desk. I really like the new Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set from the 2012 Holiday Catalog and I thought, hmm, what else can I put in there besides fruit? I know… some butterflies! The base of the card is Whisper White Card Stock and I added a piece of Pool Party embossed with Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. The jar, lid and greeting are all from the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set* and are stamped in Pool Party and Real Red. The jar and lid are cut out with the new Cannery Framelits Dies* and the greeting is punched out with the Small Oval Punch. I used a piece of Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper and a piece of Pool Party 3/8″ Ruffled Ribbon and flagged both before I adhered the jar and greeting to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The butterflies are cut out with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit from Real Red Card Stock and are also adhered with pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the different color combination the flagged pieces go so well with the Chevron Embossing Folder. Don’t forget a week from today you can start ordering form the new 2012 Holiday Catalog! If you need a catalog message me and I’ll get one right out to you. Thank you very much for dropping in and I hope that you have a wonderful day!
