Today I'm sharing a card that we made in class earlier this year, that somehow escaped getting to my blog. I was inspired by this card using the lovely Beauty Abounds stamp set, which is still available in the 2019-20 Annual Catalogue. I have kept the layout the same, but I wanted my card to have more colour and pop.
The Whisper White centre panel was stamped twice with the large floral spray image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set, masking off the centre area so that it didn't over stamp the first image. The bubbles were randomly stamped over the top in Lemon Lime Twist and Balmy Blue ink and the panel was adhered to a mat of Lemon Lime Twist that had the bottom edge finished with the scalloped and stitched border from the Stitched Be Mine Dies. The greeting from the Botanical Bliss set was stamped at the base of the card front-sized Balmy Blue panel and the art panel was adhered to it.
The butterfly was punched out of the (retired) Botanical Butterfly Designer paper and adhered to another butterfly punched out of Whisper White card stock to make it more robust. I coloured it with Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. It was popped up on a stitched circle die cut with the Stitched Shapes Dies and then onto a Balmy Blue circle. I finished with a rhinestone for the head of the butterfly and each side of the greeting.
For the inside, I have mat of Lemon Lime Twist for the writing panel. I stamped the floral spray on the right and coloured it with Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. I finished with a couple of tiny Balmy Blue butterflies cut with the Butterfly Beauty dies.
