Butterfly Basic Birthday!

This week my niece celebrated her 30th birthday and I had the pleasure of making this card for her, I hope you like it.

I layered the images from Butterfly Basics and Kinda Eclectic in the background with Pink Pirouette and Rose Red for the honeycomb image and Wild Wasabi for the leaf image from Kinda Eclectic.  Then I added the border image from Butterfly Basics in Always Artichoke.  I stamped the flower image in Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla.  Then I colored it with my Aqua Painter, the small one, with a combination of Rose Red, Pink Pirouette, Always Artichoke and Wild Wasbi.  I love coloring with any media, an Aqua Painter or Blender Pen with ink,  our Stampin’ Write Markers, or even crayons!  When you use an Aqua Painters be careful not to let too much water pool on your images.  If there is too much blot it with a paper towel to dry it some or the image becomes too blurry.  So after the image dried I used my Paper Snips and trimmed it out.  That was not the easiest task I have ever done, but well worth it.  The flower image is so delicate when cut out.  Do you agree?


After attaching it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals I put some Dazzling Details on it to bring texture and sparkle.  The card itself is made with Crumb Cake cardstock layered with Chocolate Chip and Pink Pirouette.  I finished off the card with a band of Wild Wasabi seam binding ribbon, a small bow I made with the same seam binding and who can resist a few rhinestones?   I love the seam binding ribbon, in all it’s colors, it lays nicely and ties into bows that come out so well without a lot of futzing.   Here is a last look at this special birthday card for a special woman.


If you like this card and would like to make your own, or something else using these stamps please go to my website and purchase the supplies you will need.  To make this particular card, I’ve detailed all of the supplies needed at the bottom of this post.  Of course you can use other brands of scissors, rhinestones and even Dazzling Details but the images are from Stampin’ Up! and the stamp set is so versatile that it is well worth to have it in your stamp library.   Now have a great day and go create something gorgeous!
