As I mentioned in my previous post, I have a number of Birthdays coming up (non-family!) and I just love giving handmade cards.  This little cutie is an Easel Card.  They are fun to make and have a real WOW factor to them.  I have used the All a Flutter Butterfly, which is sold as a separate stamp from the Stampin' Up! A la Catre range.  At just $15.95, it is a great way to start your stamp collection.

I have added Dazzling Diamonds to the flight path and it really shimmers beautifully in the light.  A trio of brads holds the card open so it can be admired, but there is also room for a message behind them.  The sentiment is a sneak peak of a divine punch set coming out in the new catalogue which launches on the 1st of September.  Can't wait to show you more creations with new and exciting product!

Stamps:  Perfect Punches, All a Flutter
Card:  Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: Piercing tool & mat, brads, adhesive, 2 way Glue Pen, Dazzling Diamonds, Chocolate Chip Marker, Cutter Kit


  1. Love the flight path you have made for this butterfly!

  3. Gorgeous, Paula. Love how you've used faux suede on one of the layers, too. Clever!

  4. I have sooooo got to try one of these easel cards! This is gorgeous ... and I can imagine how pretty that Dazzling Diamonds is! Hugs Andrea xxx

  5. Ohhh, that's come out nice Paula.

  6. This is so pretty! Love the butterfly anyway, but I love how you have linked the words together.

    My birthday is in January (thought I would give you plenty of time to make me a special card like this ...). Thanks for sharing!! Sharlene
