SUO156 Primary Colors- Happy Butterfly Birthday

Hi Friends!   

It’s time for the SUO156 “Primary Colors” Challenge at SU-Only Challenges- perfect for back to school!

I decided to create a birthday card using Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry for the yellow, Dapper Denim for the blue and Real Red for the red.

I also incorporated the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC421 Sketch into the design (love their challenges :-)) plus they are also my DT Sisters on the SUO Challenge site.

I hope you will stop by the SU-Only Challenge site to check out the rest of the Design Team projects as well as the Create with Connie and Mary gallery- fabulous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the Timeless Textures images with Dapper Demin and Real Red Classic Ink, stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock to create your own “designer paper”.

Cut two circles from the stamped panel using the Big Shot™ with the Circle Framelits™ (one larger circle and a medium circle) and also cut circles from Real Red cardstock using the same size framelit.

Cut the Real Red circles in half and layer behind the die cut stamped circles to create a small frame for each.

Trim a piece of Whisper White cardstock, layer onto a piece of Crushed Curry cardstock, trim and layer onto a piece of Real Red cardstock.

Mount the entire panel onto the Extra Thick Whisper White card base.

Ink the sentiment from Rose Wonder and stamp onto the card front.

Add a bit of splatter with the Timeless Textures splatter image using Real Red and Dapper Denim Classic Ink, mount the larger die cut stamped circle directly onto the card front and mount the smaller circle (per the sketch) with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add a strip of Real Red cardstock (again, per the sketch) and a few Pearls.

It is difficult to capture the shimmer on the wings but it is there :-)
Create the butterflies by stamping the Papillon Potpourri image onto Whisper White cardstock using Stampin’ Archival™ Basic Black ink, color the images with the Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry Stampin’ Write Markers and punch out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch.

Mount onto the card front and add Clear Wink of Stella® to the butterfly wings along with Pearls to the centers of each butterfly to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Papillon Potpourri, Timeless Texture, Rose Wonder

Ink: Stampin’ Archival Pad™- Basic Black, Dapper Denim, Real Red; Stampin’ Write Markers- Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry; Clear Wink of Stella®

What a great card Julie - I love how you worked with the sketch this week! Those bright yellow butterflies really pop against the red and blue textured background stamping. Thanks for joining us over at Create With Connie and Mary this week!
