Butterfly Just For You Square Step Panel Card

During weekends at Wilko we have some lovely young people working with us. I so admire their energy and all of them have a great sense of fun!  One of the girls, Olivia, turned 18 earlier this year.  We've recently started giving everyone a card on their birthday but Olivia had missed out.  When another girl received an 18th birthday card a few weeks ago Olivia 'had a bone to pick with us' and registered mock outrage that she hadn't received a card.  I asked her would she like me to make a card for her and she said she'd love that.

I asked Olivia if she had a favourite colour and she answered purple so I've used SU! Fresh Fig for the square step panel card together with Powder Pink and Whisper White.  I'm loving using multiple step watercolour look stamps at the moment and I chose the 'Watercolor Wings' set - plus a favourite new background, the SU! 'Burlap' stamp.

The Fresh Fig square panel is popped up, the butterfly body is glued flat to the card but there are half Dimensionals under each wing with the backing paper left on so that the wings stay popped up.  The small Fresh Fig dots were cut from a die in the 'Mini Treat Bag' die set.  I used a clear Wink of Stella pen to add some shimmer to the butterfly wings.


Here's the back of the card.  That fun sentiment is from Inkylicious, I couldn't resist it!  


Here's the back of the envelope.


On the front of the envelope I added a name label die cut using the Tonic Studios 'Beautiful Banner' die.


Olivia loved the card and said she would cherish it forever, such a sweet girl!
