{Paper Smooches} Graceful Beauties


Today's card features the Graceful Beauties stamp set. If you love butterflies, you definitely need this set! There are also butterflies in side profile but I used all the straight-on ones, along with the three little hearts in the set. I love how quickly and easily this card came together!


I used the scalloped rectangle die from Just For You Icons, die cutting it four times from Craft-a-Board (must-have product). The sentiment strip is suspended in between the four layers and backed with foam tape to hold it in place.


All of the inks I used are Memento Luxe inks, still my all-time favourite pigment inks. The gold is from the Brilliance line, also by Tsukineko. Since I didn't have cardstock to match the inks, I just smeared the Galaxy Gold and Sweet Plum ink pads right on the cardstock and heat set it before die cutting and stamping, respectively.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Oh, soooo pretty! I love your tip of what to do when you don't have matching card stock. I'll have to remember that idea.
