Butterflies and Roses updated
Way, Way back in May 2013 I created this card using products which were current at the time. Surprisingly this has been one of my most pinned cards and is a featured card at the All Free Papercrafts. I have just been notified that this card is part of a free e-book which has recently been updated. So, it set me to thinking, what if I re-created this card using current Stampin’ Up! products.
This time I embossed Whisper White card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. I attached a piece of Blooms and Bliss Designer Series paper across the bottom of the embossed card and wrapped the join using the Sweet Sugarplum 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon. I stamped the large and the small butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set onto Whisper White card using Sweet Sugarplum ink. I punched the butterflies using the matching Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches. I used my bone folder to add some shape to the wings and attached the small butterflies to the centre of the large butterflies using Mini Glue Dots. The butterflies are attached to Whisper White card again using Mini Glue Dots. I added three Basic Pearls to the centre of each of the butterflies. The Whisper White card is attached to Mint Macaron card and then the card front using dimensionals. The greeting from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set is stamped onto Whisper White card using Sweet Sugarplum ink. I trimmed one end of the stamped card using the Triple Banner Punch, attached it to Mint Macaron card, also trimmed using the same punch, and then the card front.
To decorate the inside I stamped the large butterflies along the left hand edge of Whisper White card using Sweet Sugarplum ink.
I didn’t change a thing on the card, just updated it with current product and I love this new version just as much. What about you, which one do you prefer?
