Butterfly Beauty!

The Butterfly Beauty dies team up for this gorgeous card! 

Recently, I had an amazing opportunity to spend the weekend with a wonderful group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the country!  We were an intimate group due to the COVID regulations and I can tell you, my heart is still brimming over from the experience.  With this opportunity, we were able to swap cards!  To be honest, I always have mounting anxiety wondering if my cards will measure up?  So, the card below is my little entry into the swap.  I made 31 of these jokers!  So, actually 62 passes through my Cut & Emboss Machine.  Crazy, huh?

The cards features the Butterfly Beauty dies.  These are from the Beauty Abounds stamp set bundle.  The tone-on-tone background was created using the Forever Fern stamp set, then I embossed the Granny Apple Green cardstock with the Textured Tile embossing folder (so yes, another 31 passes with the Cut & Emboss machine!)  One of my current favorites is the Beautiful Friendship stamp set that I teamed up with the Triple Banner punch to create the sentiment for this card.  Also, the Crumb Cake layer was embossed with the new Meadows embossing folder (yes, you guess it - another 31 passes with the Cut & Emboss machine!)   From the Gorgeous Grape base, the Granny Apple Green background and the additional Highland Heather color as the butterfly accent, I'm please with how my cards turned out!  I'm really enjoying this color combination!  The Polka Dotted tulle ribbon adds a touch of elegance!
