Me & Mini Me!

I saw a card of Jennifer Meyer's several weeks ago (she is Lovetostamp6 on SCS) that I knew I just HAD to attempt myself! I totally and instantly fell in love with it! It's awesome! I had the chance to "case" this card and put my own twist on it last week for a combined challenge I did. I used SC203 and WT193 (to use pearls or something pearly). I LOVE how it turned out!! Here is Jennifer's card:

Christmas & Snowflakes

I may just use this as NEXT year's Christmas card!!

Stamps: Winter Post
Paper: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Shimmery White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White craft
Accessories: Cuttlebug Snowflakes, Snowdots and Christmas Village embossing folders, designer label and 1 3/8" circle punches, Emaginations snowflake punch, single stitched choclate chip ribbon (SU Seaside), May Arts brown polka dot organza ribbon, pearl stickers, iridescent ice embossing powder

So then, after case-ing Jennifer, I cased myself yesterday for the technique lover's challenge - TLC196 - a pop-up gift card holder. But, instead of using it as a gift card holder, I made a little pop-up surprise!

This card is officially card #65 in my "Follow the Butterflies" challenge. I CANNOT believe I have done that many!! (See the link on the sidebar to the right if you want an explanation as to WHY I am doing this!)

I changed the colors a little bit from the previous card. I used Ruby Red and Blue Bayou instead of Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze (not a HUGE difference, but subtle changes are good!). I really like this idea, though. If I end up giving out any gift cards for Christmas I will definitely use this!! It's hard to see in the picture, but both the snowflakes and the white parts on the butterfly are done with sparkly-glittery white paper. It really does look COLD!! Brrrr!!!

Stamps: Fancy Flexible Phrases
Paper: Kraft, Ruby Red, Blue Bayou, Chocolate Chip, Dazzling Diamonds white
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White craft
Accessories: Cuttlebug Snowflakes and Christmas Village embossing folders, Quickutz Butterfly die, Martha Stewart arctic snowflake punch, word window punch, May Arts light blue polka dot organza ribbon, single stitched chocolate ribbon, rhinestones, iridescent ice embossing powder

I LOVE the pop-up surprise element instead of a gift card. Brilliant! ...and beautifully done to boot! :)

Wendy, I love how you are working in the butterfly cards. It is so fun to see what you come up next.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
