Small Wonder - Whimsical Words SAB set!


I totally love this sketch from post at the Clean & Simple Stamping blog! It's just so great and I thought it'd work well for a baby card! The colors worked so beautifully together as well! This is another great combo from the Color Throwdown blog! I love Baja Breeze!

If you were wondering what size blocks I used, I punched out small pieces of DSP with my 3/4" square punch (retired) and layered them on 1" square pieces of Kraft card stock! I inked the edges of each square (so they'd show up on my Kraft card base) and the card with Sahara Sand ink! I stamped the Medallion background stamp in the corner also in Sahara Sand ink along with my sentiment from the Whimsical Words stamp set - a FREEBIE during SAB! My finished card size is the standard A2 (4-1/4" x 5-1/2") and is scored at the top.
I also entered this in the Flutter By blog, since my card has some pretty cute butterflies on it! My new, Stampin' Up! Beautiful Wings Embosslits die (118138) was on back order, and just as I sat down to make this card, the UPS man knocked on the door with my package and die in hand! So I just had to use it and oh what fun it was! It cuts and embosses 5 different shaped butterflies on one die! It's so great! This is a new Stampin' Up! Big Shot die that is featured on page 24 of the new Occasions Mini Catalog! Four of the five butterflies that this die creates are featured on my card!
