Sneaky Peek Day 3: Flutter By


Welcome to Sneaky Peek Day 3 from The Cat's Pajamas. Today we're previewing Flutter By and Wheel Love. While I dearly love both sets, I'm only peeking Flutter By for you today. I had the great pleasure to Sneak Peek Wheel Love last week as part of a tutorial for SCS on paper pleating, so I thought I'd better give this bunny a little love.

My card uses some yummy new paper sent to me by my great friend, Carole...what's better than new patterned paper, right?! The paper is a 6x6 pad called Watermelon from Jillibean Soup, and it's just darling (thanks, Carole!!). My goal was to make the card look something like our American flag in a scrappy sorta way, and I am happy with the end result. I cut the red patterned layer 4x5.25 inches and then layered on strips of ivory card stock in uneven widths because I was going for that scrappy look and then stamped my sentiment in Creamy Caramel on each. All strips along with the blue layer were sewn in place and topped with die cut butterflies in vellum. What luck, mr. bunny even caught one in his matchy-matchy net!  The set of butterflies is another set of dies to be released along with all of the other goodness from The Cat's Pajamas on June 28th!

Remember to stop by Alma's blog for more Sneaky Peeks, and thanks for fluttering by!
