Cards that Move – Swallowtail

Another card from my Cards that Move class was a simpler version of a beautiful card Shelli shared with us at the Stampin’ Up! Convention.

shelli-swallowtailThe card is closed up with the Very Vanilla Seam Binding.  I decorated the front with the Papillion Potpourri stamp set and the Flowering Flourishes stamp set.  There is also some splatter with an Aquapainter filled with rubbing alcohol and Soft Suede ink.  And also some Vanilla Smooch Spray.

When you open the card you get a big surprise –

I’ve been busy busy getting ready for my Stamp, Scrap & Create retreat that starts tomorrow!  I can’t wait.  I’ll probably be posting pictures on my Facebook page – so be sure to check in over there during the weekend.  If you haven’t already LIKE my page so you don’t miss anything I post over there.
