Have any of you guys ever seen stamp set and thought “I just have to have that,” then ordered it right away, waited impatiently for many days for it to arrive, and then you finally get it and you leave it sit for a month (or often times much longer) without ever using it? This is something I have done far more times than I would like to admit. The main stamp used in this card is a perfect example of this.
As soon as I saw the All a Flutter a la carte stamp in the back of the Summer Mini Catalog I just HAD to have it. I had so many ideas in my head about how I was going to use it. The whole 1 1/2 weeks I spent waiting for it to arrive seemed like torture. Well I got that stamp over a month ago, and have I posted a single project using it? Nope….today is the first time I touched that stamp, even though it seemed so hard to wait for it to arrive. lol!
Luckily, I’m really loving this first card I finally made with it. In case you are wondering….the butterflies are stamped in versamark onto cardstock vellum, heat embossed with black embossing powder, and then colored with markers, and popped up with dimensionals. It’s just such a happy card 🙂 I am so glad I finally put this stamp to use, and I hope to use it much more often in the future.

Kinda makes me want to go to the park 🙂 In the picture it doesn’t show all that well, but the background was textured using the square lattice textured impressions folder.
This card was inspired by a similar card made by Wanda Cleveland, another Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator.
