I decided to make this card to use up some scraps. I just love the heart border punch and I do hope it makes it into the 2011 to 2012 Idea Book and Catalogue. It’s in the current Mini Catalogue which closes on 31 March 2011, so if you’d like to order contact me before it’s too late. Oh and it comes with a matching corner punch too.

Final Donation Amount for the Australia Flood Appeal
18 February 2011 In mid-January, we launched the Australia Flood Appeal to help those affected by the Queensland flooding. We are excited to announce that during the appeal, we raised $11,862 AUD from stamp set sales. We are touched that so many of you embraced this campaign–you truly have made a difference in the lives of others. All proceeds will be donated to Premier’s Disaster Relief Appeal on behalf of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and customers in Australia and New Zealand.
We greatly appreciate your efforts in this cause. Thank you for lending a helping hand and contributing to Stampin’ Up!’s tradition of making a difference!
This is my last share of cards made using this stamp set. I had a bit of fun making this one. The photo doesn’t show the tiny flowers from the set that I have stamped with Versamark to make it look like the butterflies have flown from the garden and are continuing on to another part of the garden. I had a scrap of Pink Pirouette that I used the Scallop punch on and slipped it under the Very Vanilla, just to add a bit of depth and interest. I’ve teamed the Regal Rose with Elegant Eggplant.
Card – Very Vanilla; Regal Rose; Very Vanilla
Stamp Set – Flight of the Butterfly
Classic Stampin’ Ink – Regal Rose; Elegant Eggplant
Ribbon – Very Vanilla
Multipurpose Liquid Glue
The butterfly was a bit lost on the Very Vanilla once stamped in the Elegant Eggplant so I sponged around the edges with the Regal Rose. I couldn’t resist stamping a few of the small butterflies and hand cutting them to add a few more ‘flutterbies’ to the card. The large butterfly has dimensionals under it and the small ones I just used a dab of the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
Thanks for stopping by. Check back for a new set of stamps and new card, tomorrow sometime.

Stampin’ Write Markers – Delightful Daffodil; Regal Rose; Certainly Celery
I usually put a piece of copy paper cut to size and folded, inside the card for a sentiment or message. I did this and then used the scallop punch to punch out the bits of white paper too. Below is a picture, that I hope shows you how I did that. I usually adhere the paper to the side of the card that may have ribbon ends, brad backs etc on it. I feel it just tidies the card up for a more professional look.
