Cuttlebug Mania Tuesday - Use An Envelope

We have a new challenge for you today at Cuttlebug Mania and this time we'd like to see an envelope on your card. For the base of my card I've used a Cheery Lynn Stepper Card die. I was so pleased to get this as I love stepper cards but can never be bothered with all the measurements particularly as I usually get them wrong and it ends up wonky. I did hear that they have stopped making this die but I'm not certain

I've embossed a piece of white card with the Darice Wings folder and cut it to size with the die. The side and bottom panels are embossed with a butterfly folder that was free with a magazine a little while ago and again cut to size with the dies. The little vellum envelope is one I've had in my stash for years. I had toyed with getting the Marianne die but I've got about 30 of these little ones already cut so I resisted. The butterflies are cut with the Stampin Up Beautiful Wings Embosslit from scrap of the purple card. I've lightly coloured some of the embossed butterflies with purple gilding wax although the sheen doesn't show in the picture. A few white pearls to some of the butterflies and some purple ones to the white card and it is finished

  2. This is lovely. Stamp Doctor still sells this die cause I bought it at a show. I _still_ can't get this card done well, and I'm really studying yours. Love the color combo & your pretty embossing. Those butterflies are just wonderful with their embossing. TFS & great job on the step card.
