I used a stamp from SweetStamps Fanciful Butterflies set along with some gorgeous and very vibrant double-sided papers for my swing card. This was so much fun - I used the Sizzix Regal Flip-Its die set. It's another one of those sets with an amazing 10 dies in it! Love, love, love!
I stamped the butterfly on 40# vellum in Versamark and heat embossed it with SweetStamps white embossing powder. I then colored the back side with three of the colors in the papers - orange, purple and pink. I also added some gold wire antennae.
After layering some pretty die cuts created with other dies in this set, I stamped the sentiment on both sides of the swing mechanism in Memento Grape Jelly ink. I added some of my new fav Twinkle Goosebumps gemstones (in orange) in the upper left corner.
I didn't use many embellishments on this card at all... I thought they'd get lost in this vibrant paper! LOL! I did add some red Dot Sparklers down the right side on a pretty border die cut created with another die in this set, along with some gorgeous gold cording. That's it!
