Once Upon A Time Preview Day 2 … Strawberry Basket at Blue Butterfly Stamps

Welcome to Day 2 of our Previews of the
collection new to Blue Butterfly Stamps at Bizzy Becs.

Today we introduce you to the adorable “Strawberry Basket”. I just love the sweet yet modern look about her!

I wanted to keep this card simple and fresh. The cards I made for these previews are all 14.8cm x 14.8cm and fit into a 17cm x 17cm envelope (due to the bulk of the embellishments and layers).  If you want to use 15cm x 15cm envelopes I would recommend making 14cm x 14cm cards.

Now I also have a mystery CANDY on offer during these previews. One lucky commenter will win 1 of the gorgeous new “Once Upon A Time” images (in rubber) … I will surprise you with which one. To go into the draw you just need to leave a comment for any of my “Once Upon A Time” preview posts ... easy!!! This candy will run from 18th February through 24th February and I'll announce the winner (and the stamp they have won) sometime on the 25th February. Good Luck!!
The Blue Butterfly Stamps DT have been busy creating some amazing works of inspiration so hop over to the Bizzy Becs Store Blog, take a look and leave them some comment love!
