Strength and Hope Gift Set

We were invited to the best kind of party today- a "Done with Chemo and Cancer Free Celebration"!  I made a gift set to take along.
It included 6 notecards, a post-it note holder, a covered tablet and a pop up butterfly card.
The images are from the Strength and Hope digital stamp set.  I reduced the size of the stamps and printed a page of images on Whisper White cardstock, then cut them out and put them on notecards.
The post-it notes and tablet were covered with black cardstock and decorated to match.

The pop up butterfly card was made with an incredible tutorial by Karen Burniston the creator of the die.  She wrote the tutorial for the Big Shot Brilliance UStamp event that is going on now.
Believe it or not, the card is made with the SU! Pop-up Christmas Tree die.  
I used several retired DSPs for the pinks and grays as well as the current newsprint DSP.  The butterflies float on the acetate base.  The swirl pops up as well when you open the card.  Rhinestones dress up the inside; I should have taken a few more close-ups.
For the gift bag, I added a coordinating tag.  A nice gift for an even nicer occasion.
