Here is the card that I sent to my aunt last week for her birthday. It's a fun shimmery girlie kind of card. I don't usually make girlie cards....having 2 messy little boys kind of keeps me away from anything pretty since it will probably get grubby handprints on it anyway! But this butterfly from the Strength & Hope set in the Summer mini was just calling for some girlie colors, ribbon and Smooch Spritz.
The Rose Red layer is a little piece of Sweet Pea DSP that I had left over, rounded those edges too (a great current product to try instead would be the DSP Stacks on page 175 of the Idea Book & Catalog, they come in each of the color collections so you get a great variety). Then for the top and bottom I punched out a strip with Scallop Trim border punch in Very Vanilla. The final touch was a ruffled ribbon seam binding bow (Click here for a ruffled ribbon tutorial) with a gorgeous Vintage brad.
Don't forget to check out the Hope & Strength set in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini catalog on page 27. For each Hope & Strength set sold, Stampin' Up! is donating $2 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to help support their efforts of prevention and finding a cure in our lifetime. What a great cause to support! Think about adding this stamp set to your next order or click HERE to begin shopping.
