Raspberry Textured Butterflies

After making yesterday's neutral butterfly card, I left out the Papillon Potpourri set.  So, today when I wanted to make a card for the Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge, I decided to use Papillon Potpourri again.  After all, you can't go wrong with butterflies!  I picked a simple color palette--Raspberry Ripple, Basic Black and White and then I started creating.

I textured some Raspberry Ripple card stock with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder and used that for half of my background and for my circles that the butterflies sit on.  I also used some striped Patterns DSP for the other half of my background.  I stamped the floral butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and punched them out and layered them on Raspberry textured circles and on black scalloped circles.  I don't have the smaller butterfly punch yet, so I cut that by hand--that punch will be on my next order!  I stamped the "friends" stamp from the Sweet Essentials stamp set and then cut it with the larger banner from the Bitty Banners framelits.  I then layered everything on some white, black, and finally the Raspberry Ripple card base.

  1. That little bit of black sets your card off perfectly! Very pretty card! Thanks for joining us at PPA!

  2. This is lovely Shauna. Papillon Potpourri is one of those sets that is so versatile. Co-ordinating punches too! Well it just has to be done! :-)

  3. Smashing! I hope you'll link up at 52 Card Pickup again this week.
