Stampin’ Up! More than Words and Botanical Butterfly card.


Happy Tuesday all, I have a new project and video for you. I fancied making a slightly different shape card. So got my envelope punch board out to make a cute matching envelope using the beautiful Botanical Butterfly designer series paper. The paper is one of the FREE gifts you can choose right now when you spend £45 in my store.

One of my favourite things about the paper is how it’s very patterned and floral on one side, the other is monochrome and it’s awesome!

Do you love the shape of the card? Be sure to watch my video to learn how to make the card and the envelope. However, there was a slight change of plan half way through the video. Lol, gotta love a blooper!

The More than words stamp set is super versatile.

I encourage you to grab that while you can. At just £16 for all those sentiments you’ll have a great addition to your craft stash.


Cut the DSP 8×8″ for the envelope – follow the directions on the envelope punch board.

7 1/4 x 3″ for the card front

Card base

Cut the card at 6″ then trim down to 7 1/2″ and score at 3″
