Thank You Card using Stampin’ Up! Products

Thank You Card using Stampin’ Up! Products for #GDP030

I said in yesterday’s post I thought I would be chasing my tail this week and I am! Luckily my husband is off though and he took the Bedlam Brothers off for the morning, so I could take a 1-2-1 class and then finish off my card for this week’s Global Design Project Sketch Challenge. It’s another thank you card using Stampin’ Up! products, but you can never have enough thank you cards in my opinion!

Sketch Challenge

It’s a great sketch, this week, but I had problems deciding what to feature i.e. a heart as in the sketch, flower, butterfly, balloon…. All the design team have covered them all so beautifully, I didn’t quite know which way to turn! In the end I settled on a butterfly. I think because the sun is shining and spring is now a distinct possibility and that brings butterflies to my mind (ok,…. yeah….. flowers would have been a more obvious choice! Lol!)

Thank You Card using Stampin' Up! Products Bold Butterfly Framelits Tracy May #GDP030

Bizarrely the green in the sketch also reminded me a bit of Mint Macaron, so I chose that as one of my base colours, along with Tip Top Taupe and Watermelon Wonder for the water coloured butterfly cut using the Bold Butterfly Framelits.

I’m going to try and get better organised tonight once the Bedlam Brothers are in bed, and finish up the rest of my blog posts for this week, so I can enjoy the rest of their school holiday with them…..well that’s the plan anyway! 😁

I hope you like today’s project. It should have been quick but I gave up on trying last night and tackled it again after my class this morning was over. Turned out well in the end though didn’t it? 👍

    Beautiful card Tracy. Thanks for playing along. I do have a question though: what is the element in the center of your butterfly? A staple? A very tiny slice of glimmer paper? It adds just the perfect finish to the butterfly!

    • Thank you Christine – it’s a sliver of glimmer paper. I had stapled the butterfly on but then decided I didn’t like the look of the staple so I stuck a very thin sliver of silver glimmer paper over the top and snipped down the middle of it at the top to mimic the antennae 🙂

What do you think?
