Beautiful Butterflies

Today's post is a card made using one of my favorite stamp sets, Simple Friendship. I think the butterfly and sentiment are so pretty and so easy to use! The colors are inspired by the new Designer Series Paper, "Cottage Wall" and are, again, so pretty and feminine.

How to:

1. Cut Whisper White Card Stock to 5-1/2"x8-1/2". Fold it in half on the 8-1/2" side. This will be the card base.
2. Cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock to 5-1/4" x 1-1/2". Using the Eyelet Border Punch, trim the long edge for a lacy design.
3. Cut a piece of Cottage Wall Designer Paper to 5-1/4"x 3-3/4".
4. Adhere the eyelet border to the the DSP using Snail Adhesive.
5. Attach a 6" piece of Whisper White organza ribbon to the DSP as shown in the picture. Run a small piece of snail adhesive on the back side of each end of the DSP and attach the ribbon.
6. Stick the DSP with the ribbon and eyelet border to the Card base.
7. Stamp the butterfly and the circle sentiment from the Simple Friendship stamp set in Rich Razzleberry onto scraps of Whisper White Card Stock.
8. Cut out the butterfly using paper snips and attach to the front of the card on the top right overlapping the ribbon.
9. Using Blender pens, color in the floral pattern on the circle sentiment using Orchid Opulence and Old Olive inks.
10. Run a 1-3/4"x 3-1/2" piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock through the Big Shot using the Stampin Up Backgrounds Texture Plate with the large polka dots. Lightly sand paper to highlight the texture. Attach piece to the front bottom of the card.
11. Using the 1-3/4" circle punch, cut out the sentiment and attach to the bottom left of the card with Stampin Dimensionals.
