Papillon Potpourri in Blues

Yippee!  I love the new Elegant Butterfly Punch and the coordinating Papillon Potpourri stamp set in the NEW 2012 Stampin' Up! Catalog!!  Six lovely papillon (Fr. for butterfly) are in the set, three of which can be punched out with the new punch as well as three smaller butterfly stamps and the antennae stamp.  This combination is already a very popular selection from the new catty!
After consulting with my SU Color Coach, I chose a monochromatic color scheme of Pool Party, Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White.  I used Pool Party cardstock for my card base then added a layer of Whisper White which was dry embossed with the Big Shot and the new Argyle Embossing Folder --this gave it some terrific texture! 
Next I stamped one of each of the larger butterflies in the set onto the three blue-green cardstocks and punched them out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.  I added a narrow piece (the outside edges) of Dimensional to the underside and adhered them to the cardfront.  Adding a thick squeeze of clear Dazzling Details down the center of each butterfly simulated the thickness of the butterfly body and added some lovely sparkle.
The sentiment "here's to you" was stamped in Marina Mist ink on Whisper White, punched out with the 1-1/4" Square Punch then layered onto a scallop square (punched with the Scallop Square Punch) of Not Quite Navy.  On the inside I added a greeting from the Bring on the Cake birthday greeting set:  "wishing you a wonderful day".

This card was a Make 'n Take I designed for recent workshop.  The ladies seemed to enjoy it and both the punch and set were quite well liked!

Thanks for dropping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that you will have some time to be creative!!

Love this design. Makes me think of butterflies hovering over a summer candlewicked quilt. Love how the punches and especially the Argyle folder do so much of the "work".
