Butterflies Marble and using premium Paper for digital and hand stamping

Hi, Everyone!  My card for today is actually a card I tried to replicate!  The card I had seen and admired used die cuts and foils, which were magnificent,

only I don’t have those die cuts and foils!

Here is how I made this card:

for my base

I used Heavenly White #120 and this is why:

This base weight gives me a perfect card base every time, no matter how much weight I put on the front!

Here is an 80# paper

Now, this may not look very different in this photo, but it is hugely different.  This paper will not support any weight on the front let alone

heavy weights of paper and embellishments.  And another consideration, it will not “feel” nice in your hand – kinda

the difference between a paper plate and china ( I know I sound like a broken record).

With this heavy weight you do need to score for a crisp fold:

I printed my background image on  Heavenly White #80

This will work with any inkjet or laser printer – beautifully!

you are welcome to use this freebie for your card making too!

Hand stamped and colored my butterfly

Put it all together using a bit of stash paper on that lovely Heavenly White #120 base!

It really makes the sense to buy the best possible paper you can, in the end, when you might spend an hour coloring or cutting a card,

you want your end results to be as beautiful as you imagined it to be!

Thanks for stopping by!
