Butterfly Brilliance, Days to Remember, Color & Contour, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hi there! I'm happy to see you here today. I have a fun, sweet and easy card to share with you. I found it on the internet, you can see the original card here but the site is not secure and I don't feel comfortable sending you to an unsecured site. I'm not sure why the owner of the side didn't secure it but it's up to you if you want to go see it. I did make a couple of small changes but for the most part my card is the same. Please read on to see how I made this card. Oh and there are no instructions on that link that tell you how to make the card. So here's how I made it:

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 3-1/2"x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White for the back layer. You could just add strips of Basic White card stock for the edges but the whole piece gives the front more stability.

Next I cut the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Dainty Flowers" 12" x 12" package, it measured 5-1/4" x 3-1/4".  

The Fresh Freesia scalloped edge at the bottom was created using the die from the "Color & Contour" die set on a strip of card stock that measured 1-1/2" before die cutting.  I also die cut a 3/8" x 5-1/4" strip of Fresh Freesia for the front because I didn't have any ribbon left (yes, I actually used something up, the hoarding is starting to subside  - maybe-  LOL).  

I die cut the butterfly from the "Butterfly Brilliance" bundle using a scrap piece of Basic White card stock.

The words are from the "Days to Remember" set and were stamped using Mossy Meadow ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock and then punched out using the "Dual Ovals" punch. 

To assemble the card I took the DSP and taped it to the Basic White piece, leaving about 1/8" of card stock showing on the top and bottom.

Then I taped the scalloped Fresh Freesia piece to the bottom. I left just a little bit of card stock showing between the dots/stitch marks on the piece. You do not what this whole piece to be no more than 5-1/4" wide.

The strip was glued on next. The original card had the bottom edge of the ribbon butted up against the bottom of the DSP. Since I didn't have any ribbon, I decided to add the strip above the DSP to let it show a bit.

The butterfly was set in place using a Dimensional and the words were set in place using a couple of Dimensionals. And the card was done.

I thought it was such a pretty card and I do like how it turned out. Oh, the other change I had made was with the words, and I'm sure that's something you would do too, making the card suit your needs. It's a fun, quick and easy card to make.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday card,

It is a beautiful card, Wanda! I have some pieces of that dsp on my table that I have been working with. I see a CASE of your card coming up in the future.
