Sketched Butterflies, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a birthday card to share with you. Please read on to see how it was made.

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

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock for the top layer. 

Using the second smallest rectangle from the "Deckled Rectangle" dies set I cut the opening on the left side about 3/4" from the top edge and 1/2" from the left side. 

A piece of scrap Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Thoughtful Journey" 6" x 6"package. The piece needs to be at least 2" x 3-1/2". I ran my tape around the back of the opening and I set the piece of DSP in place.

The words are from the "Sketched Butterflies" bundle and were stamped using Mossy Meadow ink. After stamping the words I set the piece in place on the front of the card using Dimensionals. 

I cut the butterfly off a group of three from the bundle. I figured I could get two good butterflies from the three by carefully cutting them from each other. I used Basic White card stock for the butterflies. I set the butterfly in place using a trimmed Dimensional and the card was done.

This was a perfect way to use scraps of DSP. I just love the way the card turned out. It's plain and simple but yet it's elegant. I am thinking I can make a few cards using this layout and more scraps in my stash. It will use up the smaller ones! I may be keeping this card on display in my workroom for a while because I just love the looks of it.

I think it would be a great look for several other occasions too, like Mother's Day, Get Well, Thinking of You, Friendship, and Sympathy.

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

I totally agree with Lynette! "Oooh" was exactly my reaction when I saw it. Definitely one to CASE with a little scrap I have! TFS
