Card with matching envelope

This is a card I made for two challenges: StampTV MIUM - Creative Envelopes and the StampTV June Release Party Challenge (we had to have 3 of the same image on our card). I am also entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

To make the card, I stamped the butterflies 3 times, punched them out and sponged the edges. I applied a strip of patterned paper to the top of a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Jelly Bean Green card base and attached the three butterflies with foam squares.
I punched the edges of  a strip of Wild Lilac cardstock, stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and attached it.

For the envelope, I used a matching Jelly Bean Green envelope and stamped the 4 butterflies. I also stamped one on the back.

I thought it needed something more, so I stamped over the big butterfly on the front with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with clear powder.

I used the following supplies:
Gina K. Designs: Sending Love and Dazzling Dahlia stamp sets
                            Sending Love patterned paper
                            Jelly Bean Green, White and Wild Lilac cardstock
                            Jelly Bean Green and Wild Lilac ink
                            Jelly Bean Green envelope
VersaMark ink
ek tools 1 1/2" circle punch
Recollections border punch
clear embossing powder and foam squares from my stash


  1. This is gorgeous and I love those colors together.

  2. Great job pairing the card and envelope.

  3. I love this lime, Dawn, and your accompanying envelope makes such a pretty presentation! Thank you for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
