Van Gogh Butterfly Life Greeting Card

For today's card I used a technique that I rarely use anymore.  I punched a circle in the bottom front of the card to show the image that's adhered inside.  I used a color combination that I haven't tried before.  Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede...it's okay.  I'm not in love with it, so I'll play more.

 I used the stamp set from Stampin Up! called Dreams duJour.  I love this set, but this is only my second time inking it up.  I'll have to pull it our more often.
 I love the quote, and I wanted to draw more attention to the all capitalized letters, so I used markers to ink the stamp in the coordinating color.
 I used the scallop border punch to accent the circle punched into the front of the card.
 Here is a close up peering into the card
 This is the inside of the card
Last look. 
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful quote! I think the circle punched out and the image inside is a great technique. It adds so much dimension to your card. I love the color combination, one of my favorite colors is brown.

  2. Gorgeous card, simple and elegant. I love the colors!

    Have a great day

  3. I love what you have done with this! I have seen this set used many times but, this is really great.

  4. I just love window cards and this color combo is gorgeous
