Charming Sentiments – Just For You Butterfly Surprise

Welcome back…a few more challenges…keeping it clean and simple and black and white.

Sketch: Just Add Ink (#606); Theme, Tools and Technique: Can You Handle the Pressure (#8); Tools and Technique: Alphabet Challenge (Letter “E”) and Use Your Stuff (#449) for Anything Goes.

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Upper Left Panel: (1¼” x 3¾”) Basic White cardstock dry-embossed with the retired Fluttering Embossing Folder.
  • Lower Right Panel: (2½” x 2”) Basic White cardstock, also dry-embossed with the Fluttering Embossing Folder.
  • Upper Right Panel: (2½” x 3¾”) Butterfly patterned piece of Vellum from the retired Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack.
  • Lower Left Panel: (1¼” x 2”) Same Butterfly patterned Vellum.
  • Sentiment Label: (1½” x 1¼”) Basic Black cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, Just for You, from the new Charming Sentiments stamp set was stamped with Versamark ink and heat-set with White Embossing Powder.
    • The sentiment was then die-cut with the small Hexagon from the Beautiful Shapes Dies set.

Keeping it simple, all of the panels were adhered to the card base and the sentiment was popped up with Dimensionals.  I added a little strip of retired Basic Gray Shimmering Ribbon for a bit of interest.

When making my previous card, the Butterfly Vellum caught my interest and as the Can You Handle the Pressure Challenge was suggesting Butterflies, I said why not Use some of Your retired Stuff for this super sketch from Just Add ink by using both Dry and Heat Embossing techniques.

Thanks for spending a some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!

  1. A great take on the sketch – using Butterfly Vellum and Dies which is a great idea. Chantell Just Add Ink


  2. I like your black-and-white butterfly card, the combination of vellum and embossed papers gives such a nice effect, and butterflies are lovely no matter what. The sentiment you used gives a personal touch and makes the card fitting for so many different occasions. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

    Hugs, Veronika


  3. Gorgeous card Jolanda. Love the black and white classic look and the contrast between the embossed pieces and the vellum makes for a fabulous look. Love it! Thanks for playing along this week at Just Add Ink. Rochelle xo
