Epic Day This and That Butterfly Thank You Card

Die-cut butterfly Thank You card

I really, really like the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! It arrived as part of the Epic Day This and That Bundle, and while I love adding bits and pieces to the journal, I really needed to play a bit more with that patterned paper. And the washi tape!

I really do like how this card turned out and it came together very quickly - always a bonus in my book. I cut the Top Note shape after laying down the washi tape center bordered by the Designer Series Paper.

How to use several die-cuts (layered) on one card

The butterfly needed a place to rest (to add contrast between it and the papers below), so I die-cut a paper doily using the Perfect Pennants Bigz Die. I actually embossed the white doily using Pool Party embossing powder and a doily image from the Lacy & Lovely stamp set.

However, I decided I wanted a somewhat softer look, so I die-cut another doily from white vellum and layered it over the first doily. It worked! The stamped/embossed pattern still shows through adding the contrast and dimension I wanted in a very soft, understated manner.

The new This and That product line will be featured in the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog (available June 1, 2013), but you can get all the products now in a special sneak peek. All items are available to purchase separately or you can take advantage of the discounted sneak peek bundle offer (15% off) good through April 30, 2013. The discounted bundle will not be offered after that date (so get it while the gettin's good!).
