While this card is only 3.5" x 4" in size, it packs a cute punch!

Remember, these products are only available at a discount in the month of January!

Card How-To:

This card is quite small, but I loved adding the distressing to it.  One technique that is new for me is scratching up the B&T itself.  Not sure if you can see this detail, but once I adhered the butterfly pattern to the card base, I took the tip of my micro-tip scissors and made long scratches on the face of the paper to bring out some of the white.  I then used my Edge Distressor to rough up all the edges of the cardstock and card.

The stamp set I used is called A Game and resembles a cute Tic-Tac-Toe board with fun markers in all sort of shapes & sizes.  I hope I've shown some versatility creating wavy stems from one of the straight line stamps and then using 2 of the flower designs in 1st and 2nd generation stamping to create a little 'garden'.
