Butterfly Slimline Easel


Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Lynn McAuley our challenge hostess for the month, continues to issue the challenges. 

Apparently June 20 - 26 is National Insect Week. So for our challenge this week we are to feature some type of creepy crawly creature on your CCEE design this week. 

As I have purchased a number of butterfly related products this year, some still waiting to be played with. I decided to pull one of the stamp sets out for my card today ... this is the Gina K Designs Spread Your Wings stamp set. I wouldn't class it as creepy, but it is an insect.

I created an Easel card. To create the background on my card I used Pinkfresh Studio's Slim Fancy Diagonal Stripes die, die cutting the die from white cardstock and then adhering to a panel of pink cardstock.

I used Waffle Flower Crafts Oversized Hello Hot Foil Plate with the coordinating die and black foil to create the large "Hello" sentiment.

Along the edge of the base of my card I added a border using Pinkfresh Studio's Slim Lacy Edges die set. 

The Easel card is held open using the butterfly themed sentiment, which is also included in the Gina K Designs Spread Your Wings stamp set.

Here is a look at my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

Don't forget to check out the CCEE Stampers blog (goes live 12 AM EST) to see the rest of the creations the CCEE Stampers created this week. You can also see more details of their creations on their individual blogs:
