People Who Leave A Great Impression On Us

Said the Butterfly

Happy February 1 and thanks for taking the time to visit the Great Impressions Blog. We are in the middle of some frigid weather and snow in the East. It's so perfect to stay indoors and do some stamping.

That is my plan for this week-end anyway. So here is my first card for the weekend.

I like making cards using the sentiment as the focal point. You can pair it up with pretty patterned paper, a great layout, dies and ribbons and make a terrific card.

I first pick my paper in a couple of coordinating patterns and then my layout.

I used the Great Impressions Stamp "said the butterfly E149". Used a  rectangle die and sponged with ink while it was still in the die. Punched some butterflies from patterned paper and added a few pearls on this layer.

Used a die to cut some pennant flags and added some cotton lace over that layer and my card is complete.
That's it for me for this Friday. See you next Friday.
