Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Idea.

Happy New Year.

Well the Christmas Season has come to an end and
now it's time to take all the decorations down
and get back to some regular stamp time,

This week, I have made a floating image card.

See how the snowflake and the butterfly
seem to be floating in the middle of the circle.

The card closed

Changed the background to try to get a better picture.


A 5"x5 1/2" card base
An additional piece of 5"x51/2" card stock front
Circle die - Spellbinders
Snowflake die-Bianca Snowflake 98193 - Memory Box
butterfly die-Lunette Butterfly -98745 - Memory Box
Inside designer paper- Scrap from my Stash
Inside Sentiment - " A snowflake is winter's Butterfly-
Hero Arts (old)
1/2" x 5 1/2 inch piece of clear craft plastic, or if you
don't have any use a piece of plastic from packaging.

How to:

Cut the card base and the extra piece for the front.
Open the card up, place the extra piece on the card front
place on your die cut machine with circle die
centered on top of the front and the extra piece and cut.

Emboss the extra piece of card stock with the circle cut if desired
.Adhere the 1/2 inch piece of  clear plastic to the center of the
circle on the front of the card at the top and bottom.
Adhere the embossed extra front over the front of the card.
Adhere the die cut you want to add to the card onto the
piece of clear plastic.
Add designer paper to the inside and a small sentiment
either at the top or bottom of the inside so it won't show
through the cut out circle.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later....

I love that sentiment and the way you put the two together. this is a true beauty, Sue. We've only got a few inches of winter butterflies but there may be more coming next weekend. I'm also taking down Christmas decorations, today be the last of them but the snowmen will stay up for a few more weeks. Happy New Year my friend.

Wow! Fantastic card design, Sue! Beautifully done, with such a delicate focal point floating through the front! I love that you have attached that pretty filigree butterfly to the lovely, graceful snowflake. Your soft colors make it even more peaceful and beautiful. Happy new year, Sue! Hugs, de
