Beauty and Elegance

Butterflies can be beautiful and intricate in their colouring, or more simple and elegant. Stampin’ Up! products help you create all these types of butterflies and everything in between. My card today features a simple, yet elegant copper butterfly.

I love the Petal Promenade DSP, and wanted to make it a main feature for my card. I used a subtle marble pattern for the background. That meant I could use a bolder pattern for the layer behind my greeting, without making the patterns overwhelming.


I immediately reached for the piece with the gorgeous pink flowers I featured in a recent post. I love the brighter pink flowers, and they made a beautiful backdrop for my greeting. I used the Enjoy Life stamp set, and stamped the greeting with Early Espresso, on a piece of Blushing Bride card stock.


I cut the butterfly from a Copper Foil sheet with the Springtime Impressions Thinlits, and to continue with the elegant theme of my card, I added a large pearl to my butterfly and 3 smaller accent pearls on the background. This DSP certainly makes creating beautiful cards easy.
