Swallowtail 3 closedIt’s time for another SUO challenge and the challenge is BUTTERFLIES!!  Okay…come on now…can it get ANY EASIER THAN THAT!  I don’t think so!  You all know how I love the Swallowtail stamp so just couldn’t resist it for this challenge!  This does have a bit of a fun opening so I’ll that in a minute.

The base of the card is Pool Party 4 1/4 x 11 and I folded to create a ‘gate fold’ in the front.  I added a Whisper White Scallop Trim edge to the right panel then added a piece for the Pool Party Polka Dotted dsp over it.  Next I stamped the swallowtail using versamark on Whisper White and embossed using the Pool Party Embossing Powder!

Swallowtail 3 openI add the butterfly to the RIGHT panel.  I stamped the greeting using Basic Grey and Pool Party, and cut into a banner.  Next I made a ‘bow’ (click the tutorial link above to see how I make my ‘bows’) using Pool Party Seam Binding and a White Brad.  I added the bow to the banner then attached the banner to the card front.

So how fun is this!  I just love the pretty soft colors of this and the different opening!
