Lickity Split

I posted the other day about how I went to Hobby Lobby and of course I bought some stuff. One of the things that I bought was this lovely embossing folder of butterflies. I love butterflies and enjoy working with them whenever I can.

On the way home I was already thinking about a card that I could make. I thought up this lovely idea to emboss different colored cardstock and layer them onto a card and that is exactly what I did.

I used my Sizzix texture boutique, she is the cutest little tool and the perfect color because she is blue which is my favorite color. Back to the steps for this card that I made in not time at all.

I embossed white, blue, and purple cardstock with the texture boutique and my new embossing folder. I then fussy cut the blue and purple cardstock so that the blue cardstock would be smaller than the white cardstock and the purple cardstock would be smaller than the blue cardstock. I adhered all three pieces to a an A2 size card which is 4¼ x 5½.

I then fussy cut a light purple piece of cardstock, which is a little over an inch wide and stamped “Thinking of You” sentiment on it. Voila my card was all done!

3×3 Envelope Tutorial

Day 3 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge!!! So far so good but it’s only day 3. I feel the mantra of the little engine that could in my head for the rest of the month!

Back to the tutorial. Yesterday I was all about these cute little 3×3 cards that I found on another blog and I made these wonderful 3×3 cards and the box that goes along with them. I forgot all about the envelopes that are needed though and I for the life of me I wasn’t sure what size paper I needed to start with to make these envelopes. So Google to the rescue. I will be working on my envelopes later this evening.
