Love super simple? Then you're going to LOVE this awesome Butterfly Basics bundle!

Don't you love it when something is so simple its ridiculous?  But it looks beautiful anyway?  This new Butterfly Basics bundle from Stampin'Up is going to fit the bill!  Already I've used it to create several cards (HERE is another one i posted on my blog a couple of weeks ago), the thing I love about this particular card is that it took about 5 minutes to make.  I promise, its really quick!

The card was inspired by a similar card I saw created by Vanessa Webb when visiting her last week... Thank you again Ness for letting me CASE your design!

One layer cards can be hard to pull off... unless of course you have the right tools.  For the gold butterfly you will need your Big Shot or other die cutting tool, and the butterfly framelit used here is the middle sized butterfly in the set (there are three altogether).  The smallest one actually fits one of the stamps in the matching set. The "collage look" background was created using some of the stamps in the set... I layered them quite randomly in the left hand corner of the card. The butterfly was then "perched" on the background, and a sentiment from the same stamp set was added.

If you are wondering how to get your hands on these new products for yourself... I have good news, and bad news!  The bad news is that you will have to wait a little longer because they won't be released until January 6th, 2015.  BUT the good news is that you can get your hands on the gorgeous new Occasions Catalogue NOW! Please contact me to have your copy mailed to you (Australian customers only) Or if you follow my FACEBOOK BUSINESS PAGE you can message me there too.

This card is absolutely beautiful! Does the sentiment come with this set, or is it from another set of stamps? Thanks for sharing!

Hi J Mooney... Im so sorry.. i missed your comment earlier! Isn't it a great set?? Yes, the sentiment is from the same "Butterfly Basics" stamp set. It comes in both rubber options and photopolymer :-) Now you've inspired me to get it out again!
