Recently i have been playing around with my Stampin' Up! punches...trying to use them in a more experimental way.
Today i want to share with you a little card i made using the '5 Petal Flower Punch' in a different way to usual ... to make some pretty butterflies. Now i'm sure this idea has been done before, however i came up with this without any internet searches - so just very happy with myself right now! Here's my card:
So we've got here a cute little square 'Rose Red' notelet. I have chopped some 1.5" x 1.5" squares from 'Pink Pirouette' card. On one of these squares i stamped the 'heartfelt thanks' sentiment (in Perfect Plum' ink) from the 'Sweetheart' stampset. On the three remaining squares i layered some '1-3/8" Circles' punched from 'Certainly Celery' cardstock. The butterflies are created from the '5 Petal Flower Punch' and some 'Perfect Plum' and 'So Saffron' cardstock. I placed some 'Basic Pearls' down the centre of them, and drew their antenna on with my 'Perfect Plum' 'Stampin' Write Marker'.
A card made completely from the Stampin' Up! 'subtles' collection of cardstock, and for this reason i'm entering this card creation into The Crafty Pad challenge blog: Soft Pastels.
I'd love to know what you think of this card, and if you have any other ideas for the '5 Petal Flower Punch' let me know!!
