Flutterby Butterfly & Cutting Cafe Giveaway Right Here!

If you know me well, you know I LOVE to make gift sets. I love how one thing just leads to another. These awesome images are new releases from The Cutting Cafe. The card is for Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge (SC237) and uses the new Cutting Cafe release Social Butterfly.

You've got to go and see how many awesome images are in this set!!
The box is the largest one of 3 (!) Nesting Boxes, also a new release and sooooo easy to print out, cut out and put together. This box is big enough to hold lots of candy, jewelry, small cookies, cosmetics and more for a quick simple gift. Some of the ladies on the Design Team have made them in stacks of all 3 boxes. What a great gift idea!!

For my card, I printed out just this image in black and in red. I cut out the red butterflies and used a bit of Mono-Multi to stick them to the black image, then added some stick on pearls. I sponged the background in Versafine black. Don't you love that black and white dotted layer on the box and on the card? It's actually 1-1/2" satin ribbon that I had left over from another project. I just put a layer of 1-1/2" Scor-Tape down the back for a nice smooth application on the box base and on my card. I colored the leaves and stems with Prismacolor pencils and a blender pen.
I'd love to know what you think of these new releases and if you've read this far.....I have a treat for you! Regina at The Cutting Cafe IS ALLOWING ME TO GIVE AWAY THESE TWO SETS!! Yep, BOTH OF THEM!! JUST LEAVE A COMMENT HERE ON MY BLOG TELLING ME WHAT YOU LIKE ABOUT THE CUTTING CAFE. That's it!

Absolutely beautiful gift set, Charlene! I love the idea of using your wide ribbon! I have tons of wide ribbon and only used them for gift wrapping but now, thanks to you, I'll add some to my cards and gift boxes also! Have a wonderful week! Cami

I love polkadots and I love the Rockabilly dp, so I am totally in LOVE with your beautiful gift set!
I have to be honest and tell you that before seeing your blog, I was not familiar with the Cutting Cafe. I have since checked out the blog and love all the cool stuff I'm seeing there, especially the templates. I will definitely be perusing their sight more in depth!

I love the variety of printables at the cutting cafe, seems to have just what you are looking for. Towards the end of the school year, I was looking for ideas for my kids teachers and found the perfect things teacher background paper and stamps to make some cute teacher gifts! So much to choose from at a reasonable price =)

As for The Cutting Cafe....what isn't there to like?! Regina has the most gorgeous digi-stamps that are so versatile. There isn't a single one that I would want to create a card or paper project with.
