Here’s another sneak peek of new products from the 2019 Occasions catalog, which goes live in only 5 days! I used the Beauty Abound stamp set and Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies (get the bundle to save 10%) along with the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper to create this lovely friend card.


Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Early Espresso card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Powder Pink CS cut to 3″ x 1″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Beauty Abounds stamp set:

  • outer sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink onto the Powder Pink CS
  • small butterfly in Lovely Lipstick ink onto a scrap of Powder Pink CS
  • inner sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink onto the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White CS (Oops! I forgot to photograph the inside of the card. The sentiment is “…out of a whole world of people.”)

Die cut using the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits:

  • small stamped butterfly
  • large butterfly background shape from a scrap of Powder Pink CS
  • large butterfly foreground shape from a scrap of Lovely Lipstick CS
  • NOTE: I had no trouble cutting the butterflies using the Magnetic Platform on my Big Shot. If your butterflies don’t cut well, use the Precision Base Plate with the regular platform.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • large Lovely Lipstick butterflies glued onto the large Powder Pink butterflies, then the whole thing glued onto the DSP layer
  • NOTE: I recommend putting glue on just part of the large die cut and lining it up, then doing another small section. Otherwise the large delicate die cut can flop around on you.
  • small butterfly glued onto the sentiment
  • sentiment glued over the butterflies using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

During the Year-End Closeout promotion, you can save on a selection of retiring and surplus items—while supplies last.
