Sneak Peeks Day Two: Beautiful Butterflies

Happy Monday, everyone! This week my kids are on spring break. Megan went to Florida with a friend, but the rest of us are here at home! No school, no practices, no extracurriculars to drive to and from, so I hope that means more stamping time for me! ;)


This week is Birthday Week at All That Scraps. C.C. Designs is celebrating its First Anniversary with five new sets and a background! Here's a peek at the C.C. Designs set Beautiful Butterflies. This set has two butterfly images and three sentiment stamps. When I saw it I immediately thought of elegance, so that's what I tried to achieve with this card. The white panel is C.C. Designs new White Cardstock. Its 140 lb. weight makes it more sturdy than Whisper White, so it can be used for a card base. I chose to layer it on Basic Gray for this card, so it would be able to handle all the embellishments! To create the bottom border I first used my Scor-Pal to score two lines, then I embossed below the lines with my Cuttlebug and D'vine Swirls embossing folder. I stamped the butterfly image in Versamark and heat embossed it with Black Embossing Powder. I used the Pretties Kit to make the pin.

Be sure to stop by the All That Scraps Blog this week for more samples and some fun giveaways! All new sets will be released this Friday, April 4, at 12:01 AM. I'll have more sneak peeks of the other sets right here -- I hope you'll come back to check them out! Have a great day -- thanks for visiting! :)

ETA: I just made another card with this set, and it has an entirely different look to it. It's in the All That Scraps Gallery -- click HERE to see it! :)
