Butterfly Kisses

Happy Friday to you! Did you see the new Paper Playtime Design Team announcement yesterday over at the challenge blog? No? You missed it? Well, go check it out!

This morning I watched one of Dawn's YouTube videos. I think she is so creative. I love the stuff she makes because even if I don't have all the things she uses, I can adapt it easily to what I do have and still make the project work.  Dawn's video tutorial is HERE.

Here's all the details for the mini cards I made.

  • Card base 3" x 6". Score and fold at 3" for 3" x 3" card using white cardstock
  • White cardstock top piece cut at 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"
  • Top piece embossed at top edge only using Cuttlebug folder "Juli's Garden"
  • Cardz TV Stamps "Think Spring" for "Butterfly kisses" stamped using Memento Tuxedo black ink
  • Recollections METAL Butterfly brads for all of the cards except the orange one where I used an orange Recollection glittered butterfly sticker instead
  • Strips of colorful pattern paper cut @ 3/4" x 2 3/4" (all colors except the blue are BoBunny Double Dots - shop TSQ HERE. The blue dots is from Recollections 180 stack "Bright and Basic.")
  • Top piece adhered to cardbase using foam tape for dimension
  • Envelopes made using the new We R Memory Keepers "Envelope Punch Board." See my tutorial video for that below or click HERE to visit YouTube. I totally forgot to mention in the video that one side of the punch is the notch, and the other side is a corner rounder. (shop TSQ HERE)

That's it! Very easy and fast to get an assembly line going for all 5 mini cards. This project took me just a few minutes. Give it a try!

Smiles :) Janis
