This is an excerpt from that website:
THANK YOU for your continued support, generosity, and kindness towards local deserving families that need a helping hand this holiday season.

For the 47th year, the Spruce Grove Kinette volunteers are working to make Christmas brighter for local families struggling with a limited income. Our goal is to support families in need with food and gifts for the holidays and last year, with your help, we assisted 606 families in our area, and supported close to 1900 residents!

Beautiful Butterflies in Night of Navy & Silver

Beautiful Butterflies in Night of Navy & Silver

These beautiful butterflies in Night of Navy and Silver will make any creation sparkle!  The thinlits come in 2 different designs that complement each other and are so easy to match up. You can cut them in any coordinating colours and then that’s all you’d need.  Or you can add background images like I did on this card to give them a place to fly!  I love how the reversible ribbon ties the variety of butterflies all together.

 

Details of how this card was made:

  1. Cut Balmy Blue Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” – Fold in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.
  2. Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″.  Use the largest Rectangle Stitched Framelit with the Big Shot to get a design around the edge.
  3. Use Balmy Blue Classic Ink, Granny Apple Green Classic Ink and Night of Navy Classic Ink to stamp background images.  Attach to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
  4. Cut a length of Reversible Ribbon – attach with Mini Glue Dots over the Whisper White Cardstock layer.
  5. Cut Night of Navy Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ – cut a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet at 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. Peel off the first side of cover paper and attach the adhesive to the back side of the Night of Navy layer. Use the background butterfly thinlit die and the Big Shot to cut out a group of butterflies.
  6. Cut Silver Foil Cardstock at 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ – cut a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet at 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″. Peel off the first side of cover paper and attach the adhesive to the back side of the Silver Foil layer.use the foreground butterfly thinlit die and the Big Shot to cut out a group of butterflies.
  7. Peel off the second side of the cover paper and attach the layer of butterflies over the Night of Navy layer.
  8. Peel off the second side of the cover paper from the Night of Navy layer and attach over the reversible ribbon.

and here’s the inside

Water Painters And Classic Ink!

Here’s a background you can easily create with Water Painters and Classic Ink! I used the widest Painter from the 3 pack set applying more layers of colour until I got the shade I wanted. Of course, I had to leave it dry before attaching it to the cardstock but I’m sure using the heat tool would have helped shorten the drying time.

  • Cut Whisper White Cardstock at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, score at 4-1/4″, fold and burnish with a Bone Folder.
  • Cut Magenta Madness Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″ – use Stampin’ Seal to attach to the cardbase.
  • For the colour, you can use Magenta Madness & Misty Moonlight Ink Refill or Classic Stamp Pad. I like to place a small amount of ink from the refill inside the lid of the stamp pad to dip my Water Painter in. This way there’s no clean up to do!
  • “Paint” the desired colour on Watercolor Paper – after it is dry, trim it to 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ – use Stampin’ Seal to attach over the Magenta Madness layer.
  • Stamp a greeting stamp from Peaceful Moments with Misty Moonlight Classic Stamp Pad on Whisper White Cardstock.
  • Cut the greeting out with a Stitched So Sweetly Die and a Die Cutting Machine (Big Shot or Stampin’ Cut & Emboss).
