Beautiful Floral Framelets Cards

We made some lovely cards at Lesley's card classes just recently. I want to share them with you. The first one is made with Whisper White cardstock using the Floral Framelets die set. We cut the card base on teh fold. The we cut the mat from the Print Poetry designer series paper stack. We stamped in  Midnight Muse and Crumb Cake ink and the stamp sets are Daydream Medallions and Papillon Potpourri. The stitched 3/8" ribbon is in Summer Starfruit and there are little Basic Gems pearls along the butterfly bodies and around the edge of the card. We cut and made an envelope and stamped it with more of the butterflies.  It's such a pretty card.

 The second one was cut from Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point and Rich Razzleberry cardstock (stamped in Rich Razzleberry too). The stamp sets are Language of Friendship and Itty Bitty Banners (with matching framelet to cut it out of course). The card base is cut from the length of a piece of A4 cardstock and is folded in a Z. The the front piece is cut out using the Floral Framelet die (just roll it half way through the Big Shot) and embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder on the other side.

When he saw the bird card, my husband remarked a person could put a special die cut photo inside the card using the mat as a base, then write their greeting on the back of the bird piece. What a clever man!

Thanks so much for a lovely morning out, Lesley.  It's great to be able to share ideas with you and other Stampin' Up! demonstrators :)
