What If? Wed DCC Challenge




It’s another Designer’s Choice Challenge at The House that Stamps Built, Repeat Impression’s blog. Maki is challenging us all to make and link a card for a woman we love.   Please visit the blog for all the details and to see the other Rock Star's cards for this DCC challenge. 

For my card, I decided to make a Mother’s Day card. I folded the front of a peach card back to the left and stamped some RI butterflies in versamark along both edges. The white inside piece was folded the same way and is about an inch less in width on both sides. I added a black border punched with an ek success punch and stamped the sentiment in the inside of the card. The focal point is a beautiful large butterfly from the Repeat Impressions summer series. I stamped on velum, colored from behind with markers and cut out.

I am entering this card in the challenge at Love to Create for Anything Goes. 

Stamping smiles, Karen

What a gorgeous card, Karen! I am addicted to fun folds, so I love the card itself! Your design is beautiful, and OMG, that butterfly looks real enough to fly off the card! Well done, my friend!
