Today, I am sharing a set of cards that I have created using the gorgeous new Embrace Beauty set! 

Here is a shot of the entire set:

This set was SUPER easy (and fun!) to create, and now I have a stash of cards on hand for four different occassions...Get Well Soon, Birthday, Sympathy and Thinking of You!  They were all created the same way, the only difference between them is the patterned paper, the color of the butterfly and the sentiment!

First up is the Get Well Soon card.  I LOVE the fonts in this beautiful new set...they are so elegant!  I used the new Lots Of Dots Impression Plate (LOVE LOVE LOVE!) to add texture to all four cards.  I LOVE this plate because both sides are polka dots...just different sizes.  SO versatile...I will be grabbing this one alot!  I always use the Embossing Pads to get a great impression.

I used the gorgeous Spellbinders Fleur de Lis dies again, and simply cut out two of the shapes and layered them together for an elegant detail.  I stamped the butterfly silhouette image on all in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and all of the cards have a border created with the Medium Scallop Border Die, as well as tons of Kaisercraft Pearls.

Here is the "Happy Birthday" card.  All of the butterflies were colored with Copic Markers.

Here is the "Thinking of You" card:

And lastly, the "With Sympathy" card.

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:
