Butterfly Basics Birthday!

Today I’m sharing another CASE card.  I saw the one I CASED and thought, OMGosh! That is beautiful! I so want to make something similar.  The card I am CASing is from Kim Jolly with Stampin’ Artfully and HERE   is the link to her blog and you can see her creation there.  As you can see I changed the colors and the style just a little.  I used watercolor paper for the background and painted on a little bit of Blackberry Bliss with my Aquapainter.  Then I let it dry while I cut out the Silver Foil butterfly from the Butterfly Framelits.  Remember all stamps (except clearance) are on sale this week until Friday 15% off! So this is a great time to pick up this set!

After the background was dry I stamped the fern image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set with Basic Black twice, once without re-inking, which gave it a slightly lighter color.  Then I used Versamark with the same stamp and SU White Embossing Powder.  I added the silver butterfly and a small piece of Silver Satin ribbon.  I tied that with a piece of Black Baker’s Twine I had on hand, trying to keep the purple, silver, black and white theme going.  I used a sponge dauber and Blackberry Bliss to ink up the edge of the watercolor paper.  Then I punched three flowers with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack out of Silver Foil paper and added a Basic Rhinestone to them after curling them a bit.  I stamped the “postmark” image from the stamp set  in Basic Black, just like Kim did. My finishing touch was using Silver Dazzling Details just lightly all over the stamped images to give it sparkle.

Here you can see the Silver Dazzling Details. It’s really pretty in person.  This card could be for any occasion, but it’s going to be a birthday card, but it could be a thinking of you card, a sympathy card, really anything.  Here’s another look at the whole card.

I hope my creation today encouraged you to create something sweet for somebody.  Everything needed to create this card can be found on my online store HERE and I’ve listed the items at the end of this post.
