It's Friday and I am in Italy--can I tell you how much I LOVE PASTA AND WINE!!!!  Headed to Spain over the weekend but man I could just live in Italy!!!!  OK on to the card for today.
This card was made using a DCWV small stack that I have had for ever and here again my supplies were meant to be used together--this was the stamp of the month from CTMH in January.  I love heat embossing (not very good at it) and here I did the butterfly with great words in it's wings.

Well I was told by an uberawesome scrapper (happyhappyjoyjoy) that finishing the inside is easy--and you know--SHE IS RIGHT!!! Here I added a one word sentiment and some pearls.  All the papers were scraps from the front.

And my envelope------
Everything is attached well so you could mail it if you needed to--I love adding a bit of ribbon to finish it off--and for the cost of one roll you can get tons of projects out.
This is my weekend at Everyday Cricut--so make sure to check in both here and there on Saturday.
Make it a great one-


  1. Ahhhh...Italy! Enjoy all that wine and pasta!

    Love the card Bryan!


  2. Italy... how beautiful. Enjoy every sip.. every bite :) This card is awesome. I'm just such a sucker for any project made with purple in it. I just love that color. The heat embossing came out just great too! That stamp is such a goodie! The matching envelope just tops it off per usual. Enjoy Italy... Ciao!!!
