Magnolia-licious Hello Little Butterfly

Hello Sweet Readers,

It's time for a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Challenge Blog! Our challenge for this two week period is to create a project using...


The rules are the same. You must use a Magnolia product AND your project must clearly show the current theme in some way. This week, Team A has some fabulous inspirations to share. Next Tuesday, Team B will share their examples. I just know there is some thing there to inspire you!

This is the front of my card. All Magnolia-licious products are posted below the last photo. I hope you like what I have created and will leave a little love! One lucky commenter will be selected to win a special surprise from Diana at Magnolia-licious! For those of you who live abroad, your comments count as well!

As you can see, I chose to create a window in the front while using the stamped image as the focal point on the inside. This was new to me! I like the "shadow box" feel that is given. Here are the other images:

I wanted to keep the inside left very simple. I just used a simple way to state the greeting, a trio of pretty flowers, pearl trim around a Nestie frame, and a Magnolia-licious butterfly die with a pearl body. I went a bit more fancy on the inside right by adding a doily border and more pearls around the image which is actually three stamps combined into a little scene. There is a hidden tag on the left that will allow a personal message to be included. I also modified the Dragonfly Doohickey Die by removing the body and adding the butterfly body to the die cut. I followed this up with pearls as well.

Here are the Magnolia-licious Products I've used for this card:

Hello Little Butterfly #321
Scalloped Tag Doohickey Die #28
Swirly Butterfly Doohickey Die #29
Bon Voyage Foliage Doohickey Die #6

Tea Label Shape Doohickey Dies (circle) #69 Envelope Edge Doohickey Dies
Tilda Doily Doohickey Die
Open Gate Stamp - Hoppy Easter 2010

I hope you like what I have created. I thought it turned out nicely. I love the blues. Make sure you visit the rest of the Design Teamies to see what they've done for you. Don't forget to leave a little love for them, too!

Don't forget to visit the Magnolia-licious/Wee Stamps Store for your Magnolia and Wee Stamps! If the item you wish isn't in stock, just let Diana know. She may be able to get it in for you!

Have a wonderful week and keep crafting!
