Butterfly Smiles

  I can never have too many Just Because type cards in my stash. "Butterfly Chick" from High Hopes Rubber Stamps is a fun, versatile image that makes me smile and I hope it will do the same for the person I send it to.

I challenged myself to step out of my square card comfort zone and went on the hunt for a different shape of card. Slimline cards are quite popular in the crafting world but the mini slimline style peeked my curiosity. There are a couple different sizes out there but the finished size of 3" x 6" fit my stamp the best. I am very happy with the end result and I see more of this style in my future. 

After stamping my image, I coloured it with Copic markers and hand fussy cut it leaving a thin white edge. Next I found some paper from two different collections from Lawn Fawn that worked together and cut them to size. I used a stitched scalloped edge to cut the edge of one piece for some added interest. 
Next I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using a fish tail banner die. I added the stamp to the card using foam pop dots and added some ribbon over the corner and enamel dots to finish off my card.
