Love those Beautiful Wings Butterflies!

 Yes, I will admit it...I am hooked on the Big Shot!  It's hard to make a card without using it in some fashion and this card is no exception....the white cardstock was embossed with the Framed Tulip Embossing frame and the butterfly is from the Beautiful Butterfly embosslit...it cuts out AND embosses the butterflies all at the same time. 

So the first photos are VERY similar ...ok, they are identical except for the sentiment on the front.  The one on the left says, "with love and caring" and the one on the right says "with deepest sympathy", the one on the bottom photo is a birthday card.  That's my favorite thing about stamping....you can make the card appropriate for almost any occasion!  Thankfully, I am not currently finding myself in need of a sympathy card....these cards were made for my church group's "Card Ministry" .  Some of the ladies at New Creation Presbyterian Church get together once a month and make cards for members of our congregation....birthday, thinking of you, sympathy, welcome and even a "seasonal" card to send each month to our college kids so they know we are thinking about them. 

The white cards look so elegant....and I love the look of the Framed Tulips Embossing folder!  the Happy Birthday image is from Whimsical Words (I think that's the name of it!) which is a retired set from last year's Occasions mini. 

As a group, we managed to get quite a lot of cards done....with the help of the Big Shot it's easy to crank them out fast.  We did about a dozen of the butterfly cards, another dozen cupckae birthday cards plus about a dozen St Patrick's Day cards ...don't worry, I will share those later.  In the meantime, hope you enjoyed seeing our creations.

Very elegant. The framed tulips is so pretty on the white card stock. How did we ever make cards without the Big Shot? I too use it on almost every card. Looking forward to seeing you in April in The Villages.
