New Stamps for Christmas!

I got a BUNCH of fun new stamps from Innovative Stamp Creations for Christmas. Okay, so my husband told me to order 'em. They actually arrived on Christmas Eve. He then proceeded to wrap 'em and put them under the tree for me! Imagine my REAL surprise when I opened them and found a BONUS! There was an extra stamp set in there that I hadn't even ordered (thanks SOOO much to Betsy from ISC for sending me extra rubbah!!)!! So it really WAS a surprise!!

This makes card #73 in my "Follow the Butterflies" challenge (there is a link over to your right on the sidebar that explains the whole reason why I am doing it, plus a slideshow of all the cards I have done thus far).

I used my Mega Curved Rectangles Nestabilities to make the pocket on the card. I used the largest die and folded it down on one end about 1" from the edge. You just need to be sure that your adhesive is very close to the edge of the "pocket" so that the insert card will be able to slide in and out. Fun!

Stamps: All About Me by ISC, Twill background by SU
Paper: Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Accessories: Spellbinders Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities (S5-006) and Ribbon Tags Trio (S3-150), pop-up glue dots, white taffeta ribbon (dyed Baja Breeze by dragging ribbon across inkpad), round tab punch
