Floating and Fluttering Thank You Card - International Blog Highlights

I'm excited to participate again in Kylie's Monthly International Blog Highlights for April! As always the theme is - Thank you. I used the Floating and Fluttering Bundle to create a floating frame card.  I used the technique shown by Jennifer McGuire to create this floating frame.

Isn't this card pretty! It's spring here on the West Coast and this card with the pretty butterflies reminds me of spring!

You are able to VOTE for my card!!  The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop  at the end of February, so I would really appreciate you taking the time to Vote for me!!   I was honoured to be in the top ten last month.  You can check out my card from last month and also my card from the Winners Hop.


  1. Cut Calypso Coral cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Daffodil Delight cardstock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Basic White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
  4. Stamp the butterfly image 4 times on Basic White cardstock.
  5. Colour with Stampin' Blends - Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Crumb Cake.
  6. Cut out using Dies.
  7. Lay the images on the Basic White cardstock - overlapping the edges.
  8. Cut a piece of Press n' Seal wrap and lay over images.  Press down.  Cut the excess wrap and images from the edge using Paper Snips.
  9. Use the label die to cut out the middle (save the piece for a second card).
  10. Peel the Press n' Seal off the butterflies and pull the Basic White piece away.
  11. Add dimensionals to be back of the the butterflies and leaves - you will use a lot of Dimensionals!
  12. Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock 3 3/4" x 5"
  13. Adhere the butterflies to the Basic White cardstock.
  14. Adhere to the Daffodil Delight cardstock using Stampin' Seal.
  15. Adhere to the card base using Stampin' Seal.
