CS34352... Flowers & Butterflies...

Lately it seems so long between my posts, but this time I have had a valid reason.  I've just finished creating & assembling invitations for a lovely couple who lost everything in the recent Brisbane floods - you can read more or  - yep, nothing to do with stamping, but that is my excuse & I am sticking to it!  PS  Photos of the invitations won't be posted until next Tuesday when I know their guests have received their invitations, as I don't want to spoil the surprise.

Now on with stampin!

I decided to do a card from the sketch over at Creative Sketches I think I am cutting it a little fine, but hey I really had to think about this.  I knew what paper I wanted to use & that a male's card would hopefully be the end result, but try as I might, it turned into a female's card right before my eyes.

Base Card - Baja Breeze - 5 7/8" x 4 1/4" or 15cm x 10.5cm
Layer 1 - Soft Suede - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - DSP - 5 5/8" x 2 1/4" or 14cm x 5.5cm
Layer 3 - DSP - 5 5/8" x 1 1/2" or 14cm x 4cm

I adhered the 2 pieces of DSP to the Soft Suede Cardstock.  I coloured my ribbon using Baja Breeze Ink & adhered across the join prior to adhering to the Base Card - Baja Breeze.  I then punched 2 squares from Soft Suede using my 1 1/4" Square Punch.  I repeated the same using Very Vanilla Cardstock

With the 2 pieces of Vanilla Vanilla Cardstock, I put these through the Bigshot & the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder.  I must admit, I have had this folder for some time, but has never been out of its folder!  Things will change now!  I attached these squares to the Soft Suede ones, as per the sketch & adhered to the card.

Using my Bigshot, the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Dies  & Baja Breeze Cardstock, I cut the butterflies out & adhered to the squares.  I then applied Rhinestones to the centre.  For my flowers, I inked the blue using Baja Breeze Ink & SU Sponge.  I layered all 3 together & adhered to the card.  I applied another Rhinestone to the middle of the flower.

I then stamped the sentiment directly onto DSP using Basic Gray Ink.  This was punched using the Large Oval Punch & another from the Scallop Oval Punch but with Baja Breese Cardstock.  I adhered both together & then to the card.
