Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a sweet card to send to your special friend made with the Beauty Abounds stamp set and the Butterfly Wishes dies. I combined the new In Color Purple Posy with Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape, with a pop of Call Me Clover. This is such a fun and easy card to make that your recipient will sure to enjoy!
To start, your base layer is Purple Posy cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder. The next layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut with the second largest Stitched Rectangles Framelits:
I stamped the background stamp from Beauty Abounds with Purple Posy ink, the larger bokeh dot stamp with Highland Heather ink, and the smaller bokeh dot stamp with Gorgeous Grape ink:
Additionally for the card front you will use the butterfly dies from the Butterfly Beauty dies to cut one each out of Purple Posy, Highland Heather, and Gorgeous Grape cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape ink on Whisper White cardstock and punch out using the Story Label Punch, use the punch again to cut a piece out of Call Me Clover cardstock and cut in half, and enough Call Me Clover ribbon to tie into a bow:
To assemble, first adhere the cardstock layers, adhere the punched layers together with the Call Me Clover cardstock peeking out and adhere to the card front with dimensionals, and then adhere the cut-out butterflies with the Fine Tip Glue Pen:
Then you will tie the Call Me Clover ribbon into a bow, adhere this completed base layer to a Highland Heather cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. I also added some Highland Heather Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins:
The inside sentiment is on a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock, the sentiment is stamped in Highland Heather ink and the butterflies are stamped in Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape inks:
So easy to make! I really like the pop of Call Me Clover with the purples! I know that the Purple Posy ink pad is not available at this time, but I was able to order one back in April. The issue with the ink pad is that it is extremely foamy and I can only really use it for a background stamp like I did for this card or with a coloring tool. I know SU! is working hard to get this issue resolved so that we can all enjoy stamping with the ink pad! I cannot wait to get a new one!
