A set of cards....

Well I have been asked to have a stall at a fundraiser for the local daycare. So I have been busy creating items to sell.

Anyway I remembered Madonna Dunn's fantastic idea for our Sale-A-Bration blog hop and thought that I'd make some of these using the Kaleidoscope DSP and Butterfly Prints stamps and the co-ordinating Butterfly Punch. I did case Madonna's ones too, but thought that I'd show you mine originals.

Each box holds six cards and envelopes. I have even stamped on the envelopes. On the left hand side of the box is six differing sentiments, that you can choose to add to the card. So if you have a friend that likes green, you can add a sentiment to a green card to suit your friend.

For the butterfly, I stamped onto Whisper White and then punched them out. I also stamped some dots onto some acetate, using Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamps, and then punched butterflies out of these. I then bent the acetate in half, so that the wings appeared raised, as you can see in the pictures below.

Sale-A-Brations ceases on the 31st March 2010 and I have put a little bundle together for you to make these cards. For $108.30, (including P&H) this is what you will receive;

You can also add the Scallop Edge Punch for another $30.95 and I'll throw in a Classic Stampin' Pad in your choice of colour.
