This is the brayer resist three panel card we made in my March club on Wed.  We stamped the butterflies on glossy white cs on the front in Versamark ink and heat embossed them with iridescent ice ep.  Then we brayered over them with bashful blue ink, cut the cs into three panels and popped them up on dimensionals on a piece of whisper white cs. 

sets- papillion potpourri, bloomin marvelous
cs- tangerine tango, whisper white, glossy white
ink- bashful blue pad, Versamark pad
access- heat tool, iridescent ice and tangerine tango ep, tango SAB ribbon, brayer, dimensionals
punches- bitty butterfly, large oval and scallop oval

Box Card

Our next project was a small box card.  When you remove the lid, the bottom "box" opens into a card.  I liked the inside of the second one, but preferred the color combo of the island indigo lid and the pool party ribbon and button.  Which is your favorite? 

I have to laugh because the "pinwheel" on top was inspired because after I cut off the corners of the bottom I couldn't bear to throw away those pretty scraps.  I played around with them and came up ith the "oragamish" pinwheel.

sets- patterned occasions -SAB
cs- white, sab sycamore street dsp, island indigo, or summer starfruit
ink- markers- island indigo, rich razzleberry, tangerine tango summer starfruit
access- sab sycamore street ribbon and button pack, mini silver brads, paper piercer and mat pack, large rhinestones, simply scored tool, sticky strip and dimensionals
