Blintz Base Card

Blintz Base Card
I was inspired by a card I saw on my friend Pat’s new blog to try this origami fold. You can find the tutorial in the TLC179 – Blintz Base thread on

The butterfly stamp set is new in the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book & Catalog. It’s one of the freebies Stampin’ Up! gave to each attendee at the convention earlier this month. I stamped off the solid stamp, inked with Pumpkin Pie, before stamping it on Whisper White card stock. Then I stamped the flowery butterfly with Real Red ink using my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig. The most challenging part was cutting out the swirly sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
