Abi's Thank You's

In May, my oldest daughter, Abi, was confirmed. We had a big party to celebrate! She received lots of gifts and needed to send out "Thank you's" for them. She really wanted something with butterflies so this is what I came up with. I used Stampin' Up!'s Butterfly Prints to make this card.

Stamps: Butterfly Prints, Short & Sweet
Ink: Basic Gray, Pretty in Pink
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Accessories: Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder, Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo re-inkers, baby wipe, butterfly punch, rhinestone, dimensional

The buttflies were made by using the technique called baby wipe re-inker ink pad. It's really quite easy but lots of fun! Take a baby wipe and place it on a paper plate. I like to fold my baby wipe into quarters. The place drops of your re-inkers onto the baby wipe. This is now your ink pad! One thing to keep in mind is that the colors will start to run together after a short time and this "ink pad" will dry out fast!

Happy Stampin'!

I love this technique, and it's been SO long since I've used it. Thanks for the reminder to try it again. Looks fabulous on the butterflies.
