The Stampin’ Up! Hippo Happiness stamp set and matching Hippo & Friends dies are just so cute and I haven’t used them nearly enough. In fact, I don’t think I’d used the sweet little butterfly at all until I made today’s card…
I thought it would be fun to use the 2020-2022 In Colors for this card and I’m glad I did, they are a fabulous combination!
My card base is Basic White Thick card measuring 29 x 10.5 cm, scored and folded at 14.5 cm to create a tent fold card.
I wanted to use the clever little die from the set that creates slots to allow you to thread ribbon onto your card, so I needed to add a second layer to do this. My layer of Basic White card measures 9.5 x 13.5 cm. I threaded through some of the crinkled seam binding ribbon and tied it in a bow before I added this layer to my card base. I also stamped those little swirls of dots in each colour on this layer.
I stamped the butterflies in Misty Moonlight, Magenta Madness, Just Jade, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider inks onto Basic White card. To colour the wings I used my Wink Of Stella brush to bleed some of the colour as well as adding some sparkle…
Each butterfly was die cut and then popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I did the same for the sentiment that I stamped with Misty Moonlight ink.
I think the end result is a really fun and bright card that I hope will bring some cheer to the person that receives it.
