Sc 018/11...

A new challenge begins today over at Sunny Challenges & Creations so be sure to head over there & check it out.  Along with the sketch, Kris included the stamp set - Upsy Daisy.

I suddenly realised it has been some time since this set last touched ink, so it is a great challenge to dust it off & re-ink.  I will be the first to admit, this is not one of the first sets I go for, but may have to re-look at this in the future.

Getting my card craeted this week was a challenge in itself.  After creating a card & about to email it off to Kris for posting, suddenly realised I had used the wrong stamp set!  Can you believe it?????  Then after completing my 2nd card, I dropped a ink pad fair smack bang in the middle of the card, so back to the drawing board again.  Serves me right for not closing my ink pads once I finish using them!!!!!  That is in amongst loosing the Embossing Folder I was going to use, plus having to cut my butterflies a number of times.

Measurements -
Base Card - Chocolate Chip - 5 7/8" x 4 1/8" or 15cm x 10.5cm - once scored & folded in half
Layer 1 - So Saffron - 5 3/4" x " or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 - Chocolate Chip - 3 1/2" x 3" or 9cm x 7.5cm
Layer 3 - So Saffron - 3 3/8" x 2 7/8" or 8.5cm x 7cm
Layer 4 - Whisper White - 3 1/4" x 2 3/4" or 8cm x 6.5cm

Inside...
I stamped my image direct onto Whisper White Cardstock using So Saffron Ink, then again with Chocolate Chip Ink, after first stamping off.  With my Bone Folder, I scored the piece diagonally across the card, turned 90 degrees & scored again.

I inked the Whisper White Cardstock with Versamark, poured Clear Embossing Powder over the top, tapped excess off & heat set with my Heat Tool.  This piece was adhered to So Saffron Cardstock & then to Chocolate Chip Cardstock using Snail Adhesive.

Using my Bone Folder & Ruler, the larger piece of So Saffron Cardstock was again scored diagonally, tuned 90 degress & scored again.  I adhered the embossed piece to the So Saffron piece, ensuring I had the opposite side of the scored card showing. 

I adhered a piece of ribbon across the bottom, stamped my sentiment in Chocolate Chip Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, punched it with my Large Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock which had been punched with my Scallop Oval Punch.  I adhered this to the centre with a SU Dimensional.  The whole lot was adhered to the Base Card - Chocolate Chip with Snail Adhesive.

I cut my butterflies with my Bigshot, adhered 2 smaller ones together & then onto the card.  I adhered a small Rhinestone to the centre of the butterfly.

I love this card. The colours are gorgeous and i love the scoring to give extra dimension. Sounds like you did have a "challenging" time but the result is truly stunning.
