Winter Butterflies


JustRite's 078 challenge was themed "Christmas in July".  As I was going through my JustRite Christmas stamps (whoa I didn't remember I had so many lol!), I came across this cute set that matched butterflies with winter.   What better to do than match the warmth of summer to the joy of Christmas/winter!  I caged the idea of putting butterflies in a wreath from a card made by Amy Butler.  Butterflies were punched from a colorful Christmas paper and from clear and stamped vellum (JR Snowfall Background).  Snowflakes were punch from white cardstocks then layered over a deep pink cardbase that had been distressed with Berry Distress Ink.  A shimmer vellum was cut to cover the front of the card base and attached with a pair of snowflake brads.  The premade butterfly wreath was mounted over the stamped JR sentiment and snowflake.  Lastly, a wreath hanger and bow was make using silk ribbon.

Supplies used:
Stamps: JustRite Snowfall Background, Merry Little Christmas set
Paper: Paper Studio (I think), vellum, pink cardstock
Ink: Distress berries, Memento black, Colorbox popcorn
Punchs: Martha Stewart butterflies and snowflakes
Ribbon: May Arts silk
Misc: Brads and pearls


  1. Perfect. A touch of traditional color with non-traditional. That wreath is very attractive.

  2. This is BEAUTIFUL, Lynn, and very different, which is always good!!!

  3. Awww that's so cute! Very clever but SO much work! Thanks for joining in again at JustRite Inspiration ;-)

  4. I love it! The stamp is perfect for that wreath of butterflies. Seems I better check out JustRite stamps, I don't have any (oh my) and I have a lot of stamps.
