Swap Card using Butterfly Gala

I seriously can’t put this stamp set away…I’m not sure it has a spot yet because it hasn’t left my work table.  🙂  I created this card for a shoebox swap I went to on Saturday.

My first version had a white circle behind the butterfly but I thought the butterfly got lost with it.  What do you think, which do you like better?

Floral Romance Pop Out Card

Just for context, I was recruited by Cheryl Lee so she is my upline.  Cheryl was recruited by Rachel Tessman so she is Cheryl’s upline and my second upline.  Rachel was recruited by Susan Campfield so she is Rachel’s upline and my third upline.  Confusing… probably.

Anyway….Susan and Rachel host Demos Galore and we made this pop out card there.

I know…butterflies.

Susan challenged us to come up with our own pop out card and gave us some supplies we could use.  Here is my card which is pretty much using the paper she gave us and adding my own twist on the pop up element.

For the vellum sheets on the front and inside, I covered the back with the adhesive sheets to adhere.  The pop out panels are die cut using the rectangle framelits and the leaf punch is tucked behind.

The card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″, and 8 1/4″.  The belly band is 1/2″ x 12″ and scored at 2 1/2″ and 4″.  The pop up is attached to the fold using two 1/2″ punched circles folded in half.

Butterfly Gala, Day 16

I participated in a card swap last Saturday and I thought I would use the Butterfly Gala bundle for it.  Usually after Demos Galore I put whatever I’m demoing away for a while but apparently butterflies are immune to this, I still love these butterflies.  I made this card based on one created by Barb Brimhall.  I’ve wanted to make a recessed panel card for a while.

Butterfly Gala, Day 14

Here is the first of two treat containers I created for Demos Galore, I followed the video over at CreateWithDee.com.   One change I would make to her version is to use the Tear & Tape next to the folds and not the edges of the sides, it doesn’t gap then.

I needed to get treats for the basket and since I was only going to Costco before Demos Galore, I have a really big bag of Ghiradelli to work through.  🙂

Butterfly Gala, Day 13

I hope you aren’t done with butterflies yet because I have a few more projects to go.  I wanted to do a few 3D items for Demos Galore and I thought a scrapbook would be fun, I just didn’t know what to create it about.  Enter Alexa the potato that my daughter had to care for over a weekend.  She thinks my husband and I are crazy but we had so much fun with our little Starchy.  The design for the scrapbook came from a 2015 post  over at embrace-serendipity.blogspot.com.
