Best Dressed Sweet Friend Swap Card

Stampin' Up! Best Dress Honey Bee thinking of you card idea for a friend - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

I made this card for a swap I’m participating in. I love this sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamp Set.  I can’t seem to stop playing with this set!  It is so versatile! Check it out!

This my featured stamp of the month. (*See details below.) I have been making a variety of cards and gifts with it! Click HERE to see one of my new favorite fun fold cards.

This is one of my “go to” layouts for a quick & easy card! I chose the beautiful floral DSP from the Best Dressed 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper pack then chose my coordinating colors of Lovely Lipstick and Petal Pink.  Here’s the measurements:

  • Card Base: Petal Pink 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Layer 1: Lovely Lipstick 3 3/8 x 3 5/8
  • DSP Layer: 3 1/4 x 3 1/2

I stamped the sentiment in Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White and cut it out with the Stitched Shapes Dies.  It is layered on Lovely Lipstick cut with a Scalloped Oval Die and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The butterfly is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and stamped with Lovely Lipstick on Whisper White and colored with Clear Wink of Stella.  It is punched out using the Butterfly Duet Punch. I also used the leaf punch and punched 2 from Old Olive Perennial Essence Vellum cardstock. Such a pretty combination of colors! Punches make it quick & easy!

I added some layers on the inside with the coordinating cardstock, DSP, and the matching mini butterfly.  I left it blank for a personal message but this sentiment works for many occasions (happy birthday, get well, congratulations, etc.)

  1. Wow, this is a stunner! I actually gasped at the card when it appeared. Man, I hope it is for the same swap I did one for and that I get yours. I am not sure what makes this such an eye catcher but I sure love it! I am not even a fan of the petal pink color but here it works beautifully! Well done Jeanie!

  2. I love this beautiful card where all the elements work so well together. Easy to make but very impressive. Enjoy your day!

  3. One of my favorite go-to layouts since I’ve seen you do it! I don’t have the stamp set for that pretty paper so am glad to be reminded a good way to use it. Thanks for sharing.
