I made this cute 3 x 3 card holder in a snap with the scallop envelope die from Stampin' Up! I tried a new to me technique for this set. I stamped with my free sale-a-bration sets in various collors, then went over them with a blender pen. This is a quick easy way to get the watercolor look. I even did it with the sentiments to give a fun whimsical look. Hard to see in the picture but the butterflys have dazzling diamond wings.
