There’s so much to love about Abstract Impressions!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is easy card to make with the Abstract Impressions stamp set and the Springtime Impressions Dies! I absolutely love the Perennial Essence 12” x 12” Vellum Cardstock and using Petal Pink with the butterfly die would be perfect! This vellum cardstock comes in Old Olive, So Saffron, and Petal Pink, so this is an awesome addition to have! It is slightly different from SU! regular vellum cardstock, which is perfect for using an embossing folder and die cutting as it is a little bit thicker, with one side smooth and the other with a little bit of texture.

The base layer is Rich Razzleberry cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder (note-the correct item #151823, below is the picture from when it was originally released during Sale-A-Bration. The new folder will be released shortly):

For the rest of the card front, you will use the butterfly die to cut out of the Petal Pink vellum cardstock, some Petal Pink Organdy Ribbon to tie into a bow, one of each size of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels colored with Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends, Very Vanilla cardstock cut out with the 3rdlargest Rectangle Stitched Framelits, and then stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink and use both grass stamps in Pear Pizzazz ink:

The embossed Rich Razzleberry cardstock base layer is adhered to a Blackberry Bliss cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

I tied the organdy ribbon into a bow and used a glue dot to adhere above the sentiment and then used glue dots to adhere the butterfly, these are hidden behind the rhinestones:

This completed piece is adhered to the base layer with dimensionals:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss ink, and stamp the butterfly in Petal Pink and Blackberry Bliss inks:

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
