SSC 204...

While all my craft stuff is out & about - usually spread over 2 rooms - thought I would give the challenge over at Stamping 411 a go.  I haven't done one of these for quiet some time.  Mind you, I am still tossing up about this card.  I think it may be the colours, as I find it very hard to get my head around these colours.  In saying that, I think it would make for a great girl's card!

Once again Stamping 411 have done all the measurements required for this card.  Don't you just love that?

Layer 1: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4" and folded in half - Rose Red

Layer 2: 4 x 5-1/4" - Very Vanilla & DSP
Layer 3: 3 x 3" square, tilted a bit - Pumpkin Pie & Very Vanilla
Layer 4: 3 x 3" (or other shape) - Rose Red & Very Vanilla
Don't forget your ribbon/bow combo!

I randomly stamped flower images using Rose Red Ink & Pumpkin Pie for the Butterfly images onto Very Vanilla.  I run the Very Vanilla through the Bigshot using an Embossing Folder.  The DSP was then adhered to the bottom of the card.  I adhered Taffera Ribbom along where the 2 textures meet.

Using Pumpkin Pie Ink, I randomly stamped the flower images & the verse using Rose Red onto the Very Vanilla square & ahered it to the Pumpkin Pie square.  I then stamped a small butterfly onto a spare piece of Very Vanilla using Rose Red, cut it out & set it aside.  I repeated the same with larger butterfly image, except I punched an image using my Punch

Using Pumpkin Pie Ink, I stamped the words onto the 2nd piece of Very Vanilla, Butterflies & flowers images were stamped using Rose Red Ink.  I then adhered the spare butterfly images over the top of the images on the Very Vanilla Cardstock & attached over the top of the 1st square.  The whole lot was then adhered to the Base Card - Rose Red.

To pick the look up & to give it a little bit of depth, I added Rhinestones to the centre of the flowers - gotta love these Rhinestones....  I tied a bow & adhered to card.
