The new Occasions catalog is live and it is the best time of the year for Stampin' Up! - it is Sale-A-Bration! If you don't know what Sale-A-Bration is, from now until March 31 for every $50 in merchadise that you purchase, you can select an item from the exclusive Sale-A-Bration catalog for free. We all love free, right?
Today's card uses items from the new Occasions catalog and also the Sale-A-Bration catalog. I received the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper free with $50 in product. The stamp set used in the card is Beauty Abounds and the butterflies are cut with the coordinating dies. In the video below, I show how I made the colorful butterflies on the front of the card. It is a super easy technique but very pretty.
One tip for you - make sure to place the double sided adhesive sheets on the back of your cardstock prior to cutting your butterflies. Since they are so detailed, it is much easier to put them together with the adhesive already on them. Also when putting the top butterfly piece (black) onto the other, start with placing the center butterfly and then adjust the other butterflies individually.
