Over the weekend, I finally made a few cards with the "God's Beauty" set which is a Level 1 Hostess set in the Spring Stampin' Up! catalog. We have two friends in far away cities (Seattle and London) who we don't connect with nearly often enough. They are both recent widows having lost their husbands of over 50 years. Since they are both avid gardeners and lovers of Spring, I think this is a nice time to touch base and send a little cheer their way. The inside message is "Beauty is God's handwriting."
I used Stampin' Pastels to color in the wings of the butterfly. We did a 3D butterfly like this in our last Stamp Club. It is easy and very effective.
Ingredients: Stamp Sets all by Stampin' Up! God's Beauty and All Holidays for the greeting.
Inks: Orchid Opulence, Green Galore, Black
Ribbon: Black gingham also from Stampin' Up!
