Butterfly card

I made a similar card for my sister-in-law's birthday. I liked it, so I decided to use the extra materials to make another card for a video.

I know some hard core stampers out there will probably shun me for leaving the sentiment stamping for later but I guess I like to live dangerously! I really like making cards that can be used for more than one use.

I made my grandmother a bunch of cards that had scallop circles on them but the circle centers were all in a small tin. The tin had all different stamped images and sentiments that could be put on any of the different styled cards. They each had double sided tape so all she had to do was peel and stick. It came out great! Here are some pictures of the completed bag and cards. The bag was made from a 12 x 12 piece of paper - I got the idea from the Chic n Scratch blog.

I thought it was fun! I hope you like it!

  4. Indira - I am glad you liked it! I got the idea from She has great videos showing the cutest things. She rocks! Here si link for the 12 x 12 box of cards. If that doesn't work go to her website and click on stampin academy and look for 12 x 12 box of cards.

    Thanks for the comment and come again, more great videos coming soon!

  5. That is a GREAT idea for a gift ~ so versatile and thoughtful! It would be a fabulous present for all sort of occasions or even "just because"!
