Card For Jo

In our Wednesday night craft group we have been given a list of all the members' birthdays so we all make cards for each other.  It is Jo's birthday today, and this is what I made for her:
The cardstock is Rose Red, which I've put through my Bigshot in a flourish embossing folder.  I'm sorry, I've never known what it's called as it came in the post last year, with another one, with no address of the sender (and I didn't order it!) so it's a bit of a mystery.  It's a very pretty folder, though.
I've used my lovely Flight of the Butterfly stamp set.  I had such fun playing with this. I stamped the sentiment first, which says 'hope your day is as happy as happy gets', then stamped the plain butterfly in Pretty In Pink ink then stamped over it (using my SAMJ) with the little flowered butterfly which I didn't notice until after I'd done it, is the stamp with the butterfly's body on it.  The little strip of scalloped paper is from the main Patterns dsp.  I am loving using this, just putting it against the matching cardstock is thrilling.
I am paying a lot more attention to the inside of my cards this year.

I've stamped the smaller butterfly from the set, which is really sweet.
I've actually got the punch that goes with this stamp set, so watch this space, there'll be no stopping me now!
Thanks for dropping in today, I am delighted that you include me in your busy schedule, and your comments on my cards are much appreciated.
It's my birthday soon, so I'm off for a browse through the Stampin Up! catalogue to see what else I can't live without!
Back soon

  1. Jane I love the simplicity of your card, pretty colours and just love that butterfly


  2. Hi Jane, this is a seriously pretty card. I'm coveting the butterfly set myself! I like how you have stamped the inside, it really finishes off the card a treat x x
    P.S. Do tell when your birthday is!

  3. Once again, what a pretty card! I love how you've carried the butterfly to the inside in a reverse color configuration. Very clever.

  4. Lovely card, Jane. You've made some gorgeous cards this year with your Stampin' Up stash. About that embossing folder, it wasn't me who sent it to you but it should have been sent to me hehehe did you not enter any freebie competitions in the craft mags?

    ps I've just counted my Christmas cards and I've done 15 so far which I'm very pleased about

  5. There'll be a list a mile long if you look in the SU catalogue!

    Great birthday card for your friend. x
