Cherish God's Beauty

There are lots of things to cherish in life. We have learned that in our family again! I won't go into details here but it has been a whirlwind on emotions as of late.

My Auntie Susie is a butterfly nut! She has dogs that are of the Papillion breed. Papillion means butterfly. So I was thinking of her when I made this card.

I also got to play with my new Big Shot & the texture plates. I love this new toy!! I have used it a couple of times now for my lunch-time work classes and the girls seem to enjoy it as well.

Steps for making the card are:

  • Only Orange Paper (4x5.25), run thru the Big Shot with the Texture Template
  • Run a Sanding Block over the top, this helps to lighten the color of the raised texture, this process is optional but was used on my sample.
  • Shimmery White (4x2.25), run thru the Big Shot with the Texture Template
  • Basic Black (4x2.5) - punch your Jumbo Oval out of the center
  • Attach your Shimmery White Textured Paper to the Basic Black strip.
  • Then Layer this onto the center of your Only Orange Textured Paper
  • Punch your sentiment onto a Whisper White Cardstock and punch out with the Large Oval Punch.
  • Attach this to the Basic Black Jumbo Oval you punched earlier.
  • Attach this to the bottom left corner of the card front as shown in the picture provided.
  • Word Window Punch - punch two from Shimmery White Cardstock & fold in half.
  • Attach the Word Window Punched pieces to alternating corners as shown in the picture
  • Stamp the butterfly from the Level 1 Hostess Stamp Set, God's Beauty with Basic Black onto Only Orange Cardstock.
  • Cut this out using Paper Snips.
  • Apply Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, as desired.
  • Attach to the Shimmery White Textured Paper with Dimensionals
  • Attach your card front to a folded piece of Whisper White Cardstock (4.25x5.5)


  • Stamps: God's Beauty (Level 1 Hostess Set) & Warm Words (Retired)
  • Paper: Whisper White, Shimmery White, Basic Black & Only Orange
  • Ink: Basic Black
  • Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Big Shot with Texture Templates, Word Window Punch, Jumbo Oval, Large Oval, Sanding Block, Dimensionals & Paper Snips

I hope you enjoy the card. Thanks for looking!
