And now, to a new card with some brand new Designer Series Paper!  

Thanks to Patty Bennett, awesome award-winning papercrafter, for this fun Creative Fold design.  I made this project my own by using some new Designer Series Paper from the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs, AS WELL AS these beautiful butterflies!  Here’s the card:

You start with a 5 1/2″ X 8 1/2″ panel of cardstock for the base, scored and folded at 4 1/4″.  Cut two pieces of Happiness Blooms DSP — one 4″ by 3″, and one 4″ by 2″.  Score them both at 1/2″ on the shorter side, not the 4″ side. Fold the paper at the 1/2″ score, and then adhere the small fold down.  An easy trick, and now you have cute panels of a complimentary design.  Here’s the Happiness Blooms DSP.  Don’t you love the bright colors?  A shot of energy and cheer in the gloom of winter!

Adhere both panels of DSP down onto the card base.  Either panel can go on the top or bottom, depending on your preference.  The space in the middle is ready for your sentiment and an embellishment or diecut object.

I chose two of the beautiful designs from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series papers, and punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch.  I sprayed the two butterflies with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and a few drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint.  So easy, and people will marvel at your beautiful artistry!  🙂

Here’s that beautiful Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, FREE with a $50 purchase from either the Occasions or the Annual Catalog.  It adds SO MUCH versatility to the punch and stamp set!

Pop those two butterflies up with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and then stamp a sentiment in the middle.  I used one from the beautiful stamp set called “Kindness and Compassion.”  Don’t you just love the fonts?  This set is a ‘must have!’
