Patchwork "Thank you so much" card using new mini catalogue items...

Finally, the new Stampin' Up mini catologue is here!!! I don't know about you, but from the moment I saw it I wanted it all, NOW! There is so much more in this years edition.. and we have been spoilt by Stampin' Up bringing us the Big Shot along with so many gorgeous exclusive dies.


Isn't this card adorable?? I made the background from left over scraps of the brand new "Springtime Vintage" 12x12" double sided paper from the new Mini Catalogue, well, waste not want not.... I 'sandwiched' it through a Stampin' Up! Exclusive embossing folder called "Square Lattice" to create the textured background, which I think makes it look like a patchwork quilt, what do you think?


As soon as I saw the "Beautiful Butterflies" Bigz die (another SU exclusive die) I knew I just had to have it! I used Baja Breeze cardstock and more springtime vintage paper and layered them up to create the two-toned butterfly. I used one of the stamps from the "Four Frames" stamp set to create the sentiment border and punched it out using the decorative label punch... how simple is that, no cutting out and perfect every time! I finished it off with a few pearls and viola, it was complete!
