Butterfly Thank You Card for On the CASE

butterfly thank you card

Woo hoo! Nicole and I are back with another On the CASE. I am working my way through Stampin’ Up!® catalogs, breaking down samples step-by-step, in order to provide you with free tutorials so you can CASE your own. Nicole is using her investigative skills to solve CASES throughout the crafting universe. Let the fun begin!

Today I am CASEing a striking butterfly thank you card from the Occasions Catalog. This card uses the Butterfly Beauty thinlit dies and a sentiment from the Beauty Abounds stamp set.  Both are available in the Beauty Abounds bundle for a 10% savings.

“On the CASE” Notes
Your Step-by-Step Guide

1.  Score the Thick Whisper White cardstock at 4″. Fold and crease with a bone folder.

2.  Run the 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot with the Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Remove the embossed piece of cardstock, place it on top of the folder, and run it back through the Big Shot.  This will soften the imprint.  Adhere the embossed square to the card base.
