Papillon Potpourri CASED Card!

By | 8 August, 2013

Papillon Potpourri has to be one of Stampin’ Up!s most popular stamp sets.  I’ve seen so many different card ideas using this stamp set and I decided that I would CASE (copy and share everything) one of them.  I love taking a card or a sketch that someone else has made and then put my own touches on it.  I picked one of my favorite cards from one of my Pinterest boards and let it inspire me!

This is a very quick and simple card to make!  I cut the Whisper White at 2 x 4-1/4, stamped my sentiment and butterfly in the same colors, and then punched out the butterfly.  I added my ribbon to the edges of my white card stock and then glued it to my card base (cut at 4-1/4 x 11″, scored and folded at 5-1/2″).  The card stock and ink are done in the same color and I used the second color for my ribbon.  I then added the butterfly to the center of the punched out space using glue dots and added a few rhinestones.

You can see that the Perfectly Penned sentiment is a more elegant font, while the Sassy Salutations are much more fun and casual.  I really love the simplicity of this card!!!  Imagine creating different combinations of the In Colors using the exact same card design and a different sentiment.  You can have an entire set of cards done in a very short time and it would make a great set of cards to give as a gift!

I bet you’re wondering what changes I made to the card idea that I started with!  I completely changed the colors..mostly because I wanted to add the ruffled stretch ribbon trim!  I love this ruffled ribbon sticking out under the layers above it!  I also added the rhinestones.  What is a butterfly without bling?  GASP!  It’s honestly unthinkable!  Forget I asked!
