CAS Butterflies- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Stampers!!

While I still had the colors out for this week’s DD91 Dynamic Duos “Triple Threat” Challenge, I decided to create one more quick, easy Clean and Simple (CAS) card using the colors along with the FMS124 Challenge at Freshly Made Sketches (this one also qualifies for the LOVEFEST2014J Cute and Fun or Classy and Elegant Challenge at Splitcoaststampers).  

Again, if you have not had the chance to stop by to visit either one of the challenge sites yet, I would encourage you to do so- great ideas by all!

To create this card:

Cut three pieces of Basic Black cardstock for the vertical parts of the sketch (I flipped the sketch sideways and my pieces were approx. 1 ¼” x 3 ½”). 

Use the Elegant Butterfly to punch out the openings on each of the Basic Black cardstock pieces and mount a piece of the colored cardstock behind each of the butterfly openings.

Use the 1 ¼” Square Punch to create the banner points and mount onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Create the vertical piece of the sketch using scrap strips of the cardstock and add the two Whisper White brads at the top.

Dimensional layers 
Stamp the sentiment from the hostess set, Express Yourself using Basic Black Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, create the banner points and adhere to the card front.

 Add the panel to the Basic Black card base to finish off the card.
Stamp Sets:  Express Yourself (hostess set)
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Punches- Elegant Butterfly, 1 ¼” Square; retired Whisper White brads

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by- I hope you have a wonderful Monday!!
