Beauty Abounds, Just Because, Thinking of You Card, 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog

I ran across this card on Pinterest. You can see the original one here.  I thought it was such a fun card and I did change it just a little.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Calypso Coral. I die cut the scalloped oval from the center of that piece.

The focal piece is Whisper White cut at 3-3/4" x 5". 

First I stamped the long vine image using Granny Apple Green ink.  

Then I took the Balmy Blue ink pad and the smallest bubbles image and stamped it in around the card.  In the upper left corner I did use the larger bubble image and then I realized I wanted the smaller one. Not a big deal, it still looks fine.

Next I took the Calypso Coral ink pad and added some more bubbles around the card. Plus I added the dotted image too. I stamped it three times on the card. 

I punched out the butterflies from the "Botanical Butterflies" Designer Series Paper (DSP).  

The words are from the "Just Because" set. I masked the image and stamped the words using Granny Apple Green ink.  I die cut an oval that fit the Calypso Coral oval.  I set that oval in place using Dimensionals.

I set the top two butterflies in place using Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the Granny Apple Green butterfly that is in the "Beauty Abounds" set.  I waited to stamp it because I wanted to make sure of the placing of it.  Once you add the first two butterflies, then you can see where that one needs to go to balance out the three.  

I used a couple of tiny glue dots to the left side of the little butterfly and I set it in place on the ovals.  And that was it.

This was a very easy and fun card to make.  I LOVE the colors here.  It's colors I wouldn't normally put together myself.  But when I saw this I thought it was a very bright and cheery card.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
