This afternoon, I finally got to have some quality time with Photoshop on my computer and finished editing a bunch of project photos to share here on my blog. However, when the time came to pick what to share with you tonight, I kept gravitating towards Christmas cards, and while I can’t wait to share more holiday ideas with you, I just wanted to give Halloween and pretty fall colors their time too. 🙂
So I thought I would share this card I received as a swap at convention that I just loved. I thought it was so pretty and a great way to show that a few simple punches and some tied ribbon can make a big impression.
I don’t know who the designer was of this card since there is no name or contact info on it (though if you do know, please let me know so I can give proper credit!) but whoever you are, thanks for the great inspiration!
All the butterflies are from the Papillion Potpourri stamp set and the main butterfly was punched using the new butterfly punch. Yes, I know what is going on my Christmas and Birthday wish list! I just love the versatility I see in this stamp set and punch. Does anyone really miss the old butterfly punch? 🙂
Anyway, hope you enjoyed this non-Christmas inspiration. I’ll be back again with more Christmas cards soon!
