More cards for my birthday card stash! These are simple to make, and you can make them in a variety of color combinations to mix things up. I used some of the new In Colors for this batch. Now I'm eye-balling some other color combos, like something with Autumn colors. And maybe instead of the butterfly, have a little cluster of leaves. Hmmmm.......ideas are popping!
Don't forget to check here tomorrow evening for the Fall edition of the Control Freaks Stampers' Tour de Freaks!
Here are the color combinations:
Flirty Flamingo/Watermelon Wonder, Dapper Denim/Marina Mist,
Emerald Envy/Pool Party, Sweet Sugarplum/Rich Razzleberry
Here's the "How To"
Image panel: Whisper White 4" x 5-1/4"
Butterfly: Emerald Envy 1-1/2" x 2" and Vellum 1" x 1-1/2"
Mat: Emerald Envy 4-1/8" x 5-3/8"
Card base: Whisper White Thick 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored and folded at 4-1/4"
- Using Pool Party ink, stamp flourish from First Sight and grid from Timeless Textures on image panel. Use Emerald Envy ink to stamp greeting.
- Emboss image panel with Pretty Paisleys embossing folder, adhere to mat and then both to card base.
- Punch Emerald Envy cardstock with Elegant Butterfly Punch, and Vellum with Bitty Butterfly punch. Adhere vellum butterfly to larger butterfly with a glue dot. Place a coordinating Enamel Shapes heart on top so glue dot doesn't show. Mount butterfly on card with a Stampin' Dimensional cut in half.
