DD97 Butterfly Birthday - Three Challenges in One!
Time for the new DD97 “Bold and Sassy” Challenge- Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise and I decided to use a Butterfly Theme for The CardConcept #7 Challenge as well as added Pearls to this birthday card for the Seize the Birthday Challenge. The Card Concept encourages you to try different styles and I believe this would be the Elegant Style since it has all of the pearls :-)
If you have not already taken the time to visit each of the challenge sites, I hope that you will find the time to do so – the Design Team projects at all three sites are fabulous as well as the rest of the entries!
Ink the En Francais background stamp using Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock. Add the scrap piece of lace from the Artisan Embellishment kit to the lower right along with a piece of 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon and mount the panel onto the Basic Black card base.
Add the embossed Melon Mambo panel (from my scraps- previously embossed with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and mounted onto Basic Black cardstock).
Add another scrap piece of lace and satin ribbon to the Melon Mambo panel and adhere to the card front. Add the strands of Pearls to the top and bottom edge of the ribbon.
Adhere the DSP panel to a piece of Basic Black cardstock and mount onto the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment using Basic Black Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and color with the Tempting Turquoise Stampin’ Write marker. Ink the Off the Grid stamp using Crumb Cake Classic Ink and stamp over the sentiment. Using a Sponge Dauber apply Crumb Cake Classic Ink to “antique” the paper :-)
“Huff” onto the En Francais background stamp to re-moisten the Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink and lightly rub onto the sentiment layer, trim the sentiment and round the corners using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch. Layer the sentiment onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and round the corners to match the sentiment using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch.
Mount the sentiment to the front of the card and add the Pearls to the sentiment and corners to finish off the card.
