Believe Butterfly Card

Hello everyone!  Are you having a good summer?  I am having a very busy summer!  In fact, it's been a very busy year!  The next few weeks are going to be very busy weeks too!  My mom is going to be released to an apartment near Stanford where she has been undergoing stem cell transplant to treat lymphoma.  She will require full time care until she is released back to her house in a couple of weeks.  I'll be up there next week helping her with that.  But this is one step closer to a healthy mom and we are all very grateful for positive progress.

I thought I would do a quick video.  I used my Cricut and My Pink Stamper stamps to create this card.  I'm sure you will be seeing more videos featuring My Pink Stamper stamps in the future...as well as my Cricut.

I used several cartridges to create this card.  I used the Wild Card cartridge for the card base.  It is the doily card cut at 4.25 inches.  The circle layers are from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge and are cut at 3.5 and 3.25 inches.  The butterfly is from the Everyday Pop Up Cards cartridge.  It is cut at 2.5 inches, using Island Indigo card stock from Stampin' Up and Echo Park's, A Walk in the Park, collection.  The "believe" stamp is from My Pink Stamper's Friends and Family stamp set.

I hope you enjoy this video.  I will be trying to work on a couple of videos for the coming weeks.  If you have any requests, please feel free to let me know in the comments section!
