Butterfly Birthday Wishes for JUGS464 & SIP144

Hello Everyone!

Welcome Back for a Special Peek at Today’s Card!

It is Special, because it combines 2 Challenges


I did the same Card with a ‘Stepped Up’ Version!

First to the Challenges!

Challenge #1

Make a Clean And Simple (CAS) Card!


The Second Challenge

A Birthday Card!



Here is my Clean and Simple Birthday Card!


This Stamp Set hadn’t seen Ink for awhile…I always liked this Stamp Set…so

I went looking in past catalogs for ideas…and low and behold the

Cards made were few…I must be thinking of all I saw, on other blogs, when this

Stamp Set made it’s debut!


Here is the inside of my Card!


When I do the inside of Cards, I like to bring the colors AND some of the

front elements to the inside!


Here is my Card with it’s stamped to match envelope!


I love the simplicity of this Card…sweet and natural looking!

Stock and Measures:


Whisper White Thick-card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4″, fold in half on the score

Stamp Set:

Butterfly Basics-all stamping

Classic Stampin’ Ink:

Garden Green-fern frond, greeting, inside sentiment

Lemon Lime Twist-honeycomb, postal stamp

Peekaboo Peach-butterflies


Jewels Basic Pearl-scattered on front


And Then There Are Times When You

Feel The Need To “STEP IT UP!”

Here is the ‘Stepped Up’ Version!


I used the other flower in the Stamp Set, colored the flowers and stems and leaves,

stamped and then punched out the butterflies!


The inside of the ‘Stepped Up’ Card!


The inside is the same as the above Card…I used a darker orange!


And my ‘Stepped Up’ Card with it’s stamped to match envelope!


Stock and Measures:


Garden Green-card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4″ folded in half on the score

Lemon Lime Twist-mat under front panel. 4″ X 5 1/4″

Whisper White-front panel 3 3/4″ X 5″, small scrap to stamp butterflies, then punch out

Stamp Set:

Classic Stampin’ Ink:

Garden Green-flowers, greeting, inside sentiment

Mossy Meadow-retired, fern frond

Lemon Lime Twist-honeycomb, flower stems and leaves (a double stamping of the flower)

Pumpkin Pie-postal stamp, butterflies-stamped, sponged and then punched out

Stampin’ Write Markers:

Lemon Lime Twist-color stems and leaves on flowers

Daffodil Delight-color/outline flowers and buds


Bitty Butterfly Punch-retired, to punch out the 2 front butterflies and

Here are the Cards again!

I do like both cards!

I Love that you can do Clean and Simple and then ‘Step It Up’ if you desire to do so!

BOTH Cards will go in my Stash for use!

Until the next Post…Blessings and Love to you ALL!
