Post Stampin Up! convention trades class, part 1 #4

Hi all
Today I'm happy to share a lovely card with you.  This was not actually a trade I received at convention but instead is an imitation/tweak of one that appeared in the Stampin Success magazine, a monthly magazine put out by Stampin' Up! for their demonstrators.  The set used in this project is a special stamp set called Strength and Hope (that is being sold to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Fund - for each set sold, $2 of the price goes to the BCRF.  This set is only available until the end of August so I encourage you to act now to purchase your set.You can contact me to place the order or do it directly through my SU website (  This lovely card hinges at the top and was cut from a sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock.  You can get four cards from a single sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock.  I used the colors pink pirouette, melon mambo and rich razzleberry.

The trick to line up this card is to stamp the center butterfly in melon mambo first - you can use a parallel ruler to help you note where the center is.   Once you have that image in place, it allows you to easily place the top (pink pirouette) and bottom (rich razzleberry) butterflies evenly.
