All Occasion Cards

I've been making some cards lately not because I needed them to give away, but just because the paper or stamp inspired me.
This card was inspired by the paper, it's from the DCWV stack Butterflies and Blossoms. It's a simple card but will serve whatever purpose I need it to later.
The other papers are DCWV solid card stock, prima Signs of Spring hot pink hounds tooth and the yellow (which is covered in studio G glitter glue) is the reverse of the pink. I used a grosgrain ribbon and the stamp is Stampin up! The dainty little flower is Prima (which is available in my store)

The first picture is a scanned image of the card and matching envelope front. The second photo I took out side so you could see how the card is made from a clear transparency and the inside of the envelope is lined to match.
This card was inspired by both the paper (DCWV Blossom and Butterflies stack) and the purse stamp from Unity stamps.
I embossed the clear transparency with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, I cut the scalloped square out on my Cricut with SCAL, I added some pink fibers for a more fun look then placed my stamped and cut out purse over the fibers with some pop dots. The purse is stamped with Studio g ink and I put a little bit of glitter on the heart. The envelope is made from solid pink card stock and I stamped the purse on the front of it as well (got the idea from the Pink Stamper) then I lined the inside with the matching paper from the front.
The Cuttlebug embossing folders and Prima Flowers are available in my store along with many Cricut supplies.
