You give me wings...

Well, it looks like we're going to get about 12 - 20 inches of snow once the storm has finished tomorrow night! So what better way to spend the day than to play in my newly organized craft room! I tell you, I can find things!! I can't say too much how wonderful it all is, because my sister will get a big head! And we definitely don't need that!!

My card today uses the Pendant Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Embossing folders and dies and a Digistamp Sentiment from Sweet 'n Sassy Digital Stamps! I love the look of an all white card with a touch of black. It's such a clean, crisp look and can fit many occasions. Scroll down to see how I made my creation!

This card fits the following Challenges: C.R.A.F.T. Challenge, Cute Card Thursday, Crafty Creations, Creative Inspirations, Belli Challenge, Flutter by Wednesday, Corrosive Challenge and Little Red Wagon


This card uses a lot of elements but comes together fast! I first embossed a white cardstock panel using a Stampin' Up embossing folder. Next, I cut out the decorative square Pendant Nestabilities using more white cardstock. My butterfly was cut out with the Butterfly Cut and Emboss from Provocraft, and I added some glitter to the surface with an Essential Glue Pad, though it's hard to see in the picture. I printed my sentiment from Sweet 'n Sassy and cut it out with the plain Square Nestabilities. I layered it to another square panel and added decorative pearls above and below the sentiment. I mounted my background embossed panel to a white card, then added my Pendant, my sentiment squares and butterfly. Next came the satin ribbon and a bow, then I popped up my butterfly wings and added pearls to finish the card. Card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches

Stunning card, Darsie! Love the monochromatic scheme, your butterfly and those pearls.

Maybe your sister could help me organize my craft room?? I mean, we share the same name and all... ;-) Lucky you to have someone to help!
