Elegant and Simple

I love the stamp set Elements of Style and the extreme elegance this set brings.  It's beautiful.  Tonight I made a TON of cards to send to people that I haven't contacted in awhile due to my crazy household schedule.  It's actually quite shameful!  I needed a simple card to make but I wanted it to be elegant.  The card I am going to show you is one I've seen around the blog world, however I changed it up just a bit.  I actually pulled the sewing machine out tonight (YES, Simple just went out the DOOR!) and made this card I hope you like! I have quite a few versions!

All of the cards are basically the same.  The only things that changed was the ribbon or the Sentiment.  I also used a different color of ink on one of the Butterflies.  The butterflies (Die Cut from the Beautiful Butterflies Die) were inked with either Basic Black or Chocolate Chip Craft ink and then embossed with Clear EP. The base cardstock is Confetti.  I used that because it was thick and strong since I wouldn't have many layers on this card.  The sentiments were used from Stampin' Up! Rub ons and Teeny Tiny Wishes. The buttons come from the Playground buttons.    Again, these were pretty quick and simple. 

Another day accomplished. Phew! Have a GREAT Thursday!

  3. Kimberly, I started following your blog about 6 months ago, and love your work. The butterfly cards you just posted are stunning! this makes me want to go get a die cutter and that butterfly die, but my hubby won't let me right now. 🙂 I wonder if any of my Cricut cartridges has a similar butterfly I can use…. On the ribbon, did you fold it a special way, or just scrunch it as you ran it through the sewing machine?
