While all my craft stuff is out & about – usually spread over 2 rooms – thought I would give the challenge over at Stamping 411 a go. I haven’t done one of these for quiet some time. Mind you, I am still tossing up about this card. I think it may be the colours, as I find it very hard to get my head around these colours. In saying that, I think it would make for a great girl’s card!
Once again Stamping 411 have done all the measurements required for this card. Don’t you just love that?
Layer 1: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ and folded in half – Rose Red
Layer 2: 4 x 5-1/4″ – Very Vanilla & DSP
Layer 3: 3 x 3″ square, tilted a bit – Pumpkin Pie & Very Vanilla Layer 4: 3 x 3″ (or other shape) – Rose Red & Very Vanilla
Don’t forget your ribbon/bow combo!
I randomly stamped flower images using Rose Red Ink & Pumpkin Pie for the Butterfly images onto Very Vanilla. I run the Very Vanilla through the Bigshot using an Embossing Folder. The DSP was then adhered to the bottom of the card. I adhered Taffera Ribbom along where the 2 textures meet.
Using Pumpkin Pie Ink, I randomly stamped the flower images & the verse using Rose Red onto the Very Vanilla square & ahered it to the Pumpkin Pie square. I then stamped a small butterfly onto a spare piece of Very Vanilla using Rose Red, cut it out & set it aside. I repeated the same with larger butterfly image, except I punched an image using my Punch.
Using Pumpkin Pie Ink, I stamped the words onto the 2nd piece of Very Vanilla, Butterflies & flowers images were stamped using Rose Red Ink. I then adhered the spare butterfly images over the top of the images on the Very Vanilla Cardstock & attached over the top of the 1st square. The whole lot was then adhered to the Base Card – Rose Red.
To pick the look up & to give it a little bit of depth, I added Rhinestones to the centre of the flowers – gotta love these Rhinestones…. I tied a bow & adhered to card.

I’ve used a couple of my favourite stamps which have been collecting dust on the shelf, so thought I would bring them out for this challenge.
Using the Butterfly Punch, I punched a butterfly in Regal Rose – you can just see a slight outline. I then stamped a butterfly image from Flight of the Butterfly and Pear Pizzazz. After punching a hold through both layers, I applied the brad through the centre & adhered the butterflies to the card.
