Fancy Floral VI

Hello everyone,

Today is card six.

The printed paper is My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline "Cute" Garden layered on Stampin' Up Blush Blossom and Pool Party.  The Pool Party layer was stamped with Impression Obsession Cover-A-Card Butterflies and clear heat embossed.  The sentiment is Verve Celebration of Thanks stamped in Ruby Red on Whisper White.  The butterflies are Sizzix Embosslits Beautiful Wings die cut from Calypso Coral paper that was glittered with Crystal Glitter Ritz Warm Highlight Glitter.  The embellishments are TPC Studio Wedding Silhouette mini jewels.

I can't say I have an absolute favourite in this series but this one is up there.  I love these wonderful butterflies.  The glitter is just amazing.  They also work really well with the background stamp.  I don't use these background stamps all that often because it's really hard to get a great impression and they are a bit of an awkward size for the size of cards that I use.  In this particular case however, it turned out pretty darn good.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.



  1. First let me say how much I love this card! They just seem to get better with each post. I so love these color combinations!

    I too have the cover-a-card stamps(way too many...LOL) and I am now going to get them out and use them more! Your pool party background layer is so lovely! I thought it was designer paper when I first looked at the card. Great Job!

    1. Thanks so much for your wonderful comments Shirley. I'm really, really glad you're enjoying this latest one sheet wonder. There are more to come.
