Beautiful Bouquet, Botanical Butterfly, Birthday Card, 2019 Sale-a-Brations Catalog

Today's card comes from a Stamp a Stack that I attended. It was not one of the cards to make but it was one that was on display. I took a picture of it because I wanted to make it. 

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Crushed Curry.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic Black.  The largest oval can be die cut from it's center before it's taped in place.  This saves some card stock if you don't have any scrap to get rid of.

I cut a piece of Very Vanilla 3-3/4" x 5".  I added this piece of Very Vanilla because the next layers needed some support and didn't fit well.  I cut a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of Crushed Curry and textured it using the "Corrugated" embossing folder.  Now doing this made the card less than 3-3/4" wide.  I taped the piece in place on top of the Very Vanilla, making sure the right edges lined up.  The left edge had a gap.  But that's okay, the Designer Series Paper (DSP) will cover it.

I cut the DSP from the "Botanical Butterfly" 12" x 12" pack to 5" x 2-3/4".  I also cut a strip of Basic Black card stock that measured 1/2" x 5".  I ran a strip of tape along the edge of the DSP on the back side and lined up the strip of black so there was about 1/4" of it showing.  I added tape to entire piece and set it in place on the Very Vanilla and Crushed Curry piece.  I made sure the left side lined up and covered the little bit of Very Vanilla showing.  Then I taped this all to the card base.

Next I die cut a scalloped oval using Crushed Curry.  I also die cut a Very Vanilla "Stitched" oval.  I did die cut it before I stamped the words. Using the Stamparatus allows me to do that with no worries about getting it straight.  

The words are from the "Beautiful Boutique" set using black Memento ink.  I taped the stitched oval on top of the other two ovals. I added the ovals to the card front using a Dimensional.

I punched out a butterfly from the "Botanical Butterfly" 12" x 12" pack.  I set it in place using a Dimensional.  I added a few sequins to dress up the front a little bit.  

And lastly I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla to the inside for writing on.

This was a fun card to make and my changes to it were the textured Crushed Curry piece and added the sequins.  The original card had a black Baker's Twine bow under the words.  I didn't like that look so I added sequins.

I am happy with the way the card turned out.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
