Birthday Card Using Pretty Papers And Stamping 6B

Hi Sylvia here with details of how I created this feminine card. I have been struggling lately with cards for my female relatives and friends so decided to use a mix of stamping, pretty papers and die cut butterfliies. I came up with this simple design and was very pleased with the results.

Materials used:

I made a few A6 card blanks with the white linen card by cutting A4 card in half to A5, scoring these down the center, folding and running a bone folder down the crease.

Using the spatter stamp from the 49 and Market set I stamped a random pattern across the card first in vintage photo distress in then over stamped in tattered rose distress ink.

A piece of Kraft card was cut to fit across the card 10.50cm x 5cm and a piece of the patterned paper was cut to 10cm x 4.50cm. The plain butterfly was cut from a scrap of white linen card. The patterned paper was stuck centrally onto the buff strip using double sided sticky tape.

Before adhering the buff strip I placed it on the card to decide where I wanted it and where to stamp the sentiment. I removed the buff strip and stamped the sentiment in vintage photo distress ink. The buff strip was then attached to the card just above the sentiment.

To finish the card I edged the butterfly with tattered rose distress ink and stamped over it with a script stamp using vintage photo distress ink. The butterfly was added to the patterned strip and a few sequins added to embellish the card.

As I need to make quite a few female cards I will be using this design and tweeking it a bit using other coloured paper and co-ordinating it with papermilldirect coloured card, envelopes and card blanks.
