Enduring Beauty, Throughout the Year, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have another card to share with you using the "Enduring Beauty" bundle. I found the layout on Pinterest and thought I'd use one of the pieces I stenciled the other day. You can see the original card here. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the bottom and the fold is on the top.

I cut a 3-1/2" x 4-1/2" piece of Basic Black card stock for the layer and a 3-3/8" x 4-3/8" piece of Basic White card stock for the top layer.

The flower was done by stamping the image from the "Enduring Beauty" bundle using black Memento ink. Then scrubbing on the color using the matching stencil and a Blending brush. I used Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry ink for the flowers and Granny Apple Green and Garden Green for the leaves and stems. 

I die cut the piece and then taped it to the Basic White piece. The top, side and bottom were trimmed.

The words were stamped next and are from the "Throughout the Year" set using black Memento ink.

I taped the two layers together and then taped that to the front of the card.

Three brass butterflies were added to the front and the card was done.

This was a super quick and easy card to make. I do highly recommend stenciling several flower images at one time, the stencils already have the ink on them, so why not? I made 3 yellow and 3 pink. I did have to wash the stencils for the flowers but the leaves and stems stencils were just ready to go for all the cards. I do regret not making red flowers. But I still have the stencils and will probably be doing that in the near future. I hope Stampin' Up! comes up with more stenciled images.

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

That is such a pretty stamp and I really like the way you have stamped it off the edge. I love adding those little butterflies to cards too.
