Beauty Abounds, Healing Hugs, Get Well Card, 2019 Occasions Catalog, 2019 Sale-a-Bration

I found a pretty card on Pinterest that I thought I'd give a try to.  I had bought the "Beauty Abounds" butterfly bundle.  I LOVE all of the butterfly dies that come in that bundle.

The base of this card is a folded half-sheet of Daffodil Delight card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black and on top of that is a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of "Botanical Butterflies" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I taped the Basic Black layer and the DSP together.  

I cut a 2-1/2" x 3-7/8" piece of Whisper White card stock. I stamped the words from the "Healing Hugs" set using black Memento ink.  I cut a 2-3/8" x 3-7/8" piece of Basic Black for the layer.  I taped those two layers together and then taped them to the DSP.

I stamped the floral image from the "Beauty Abounds" set using black Memento ink. I colored the flowers using Highland Heather light and dark Blends and Granny Apple Green light and dark Blends.  Then the image was die cut using the stitched rectangles.  I cut a Basic Black layer to fit the rectangle.  I taped the two together and I set them in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals.  Adding Dimensionals only where the piece will touch the word panel.

I die cut some tiny butterflies from the "Butterfly Beauty" thinlits dies.  I set them in place with a small dot of glue.  I added a few crystal rhinestones.  I set the whole thing in place on the card base using Dimensionals.  And that was it.  I thought it was a pretty quick and simple card to make.  I can't express enough how easy Blends make coloring!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
