Floral Wings take two

A different version of yesterday's card - in two colour ways.  So the first one uses 2015-2017 In Colors Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon and Cucumber Crush.  I know, it's a very peculiar way to spell macaroon, for that is what many call it. The spelling starts umpteen discussions about the correct pronounciation - macaron / macaroon.  Maybe it was done on purpose to keep people talking about Stampin' Up!. I can't think of a better subject. Can you? 

Anyway, regardless of spelling and pronounciation, it's a fab colour. A new favourite I think.  Did you guess I used the stripes mask for the background?  I stenciled on Very Vanilla card and the words are from Crazy About You stamp set, which can be purchased separately or as a bundle with the Hello You dies. I have given details of bundles below...

And here we have Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzaz.  Very pretty. I meant for the background stripes, on Whisper White card, to be much paler. For the antenna I simply cut very thin strips of card and curved them a little before attaching.

Product List


  1. I've just recently got this set and I find your cards so inspiring. I like them both. In particular I like that you've added the antenna and the little sentiment strip instead of the usually rhinestones, pearls or whatever down the butterfly center. TFS.
