Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends.  How has everyone’s week started off?

For today’s card I went out of my comfort zone.  I usually make cards with lots of colors or at least 3, today I made a monochromatic card.  This was really hard for me, but I wanted to try it.  I used some items from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog and mixed it with some new items from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.  Here’s my card for today.

My colors are from Seize The Birthday Challenge #190.

I also joined in with Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe Challenge #017.  I went across the top.

I started by cutting the butterflies out using the Butterfly Beauty Dies in Soft Sea Foam cardstock.  I adhered the butterflies to a Soft Sea Foam card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using some of the gorgeous new ribbon from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog I used the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and the Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon.  I started by wrapping a piece of the Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon around the right corner on an angle and adhered it on the back of the card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 3/8″ Gingham Ribbon around the bottom of the card front, overlapping the Faux Linen Ribbon, adhering it on the back with Snail.  I then wrapped a piece of the Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color 1/4″ Ribbon over the top of the Faux Linen Ribbon and the Just Jade Gingham Ribbon adhering it on the back of the card front with Snail.

I cut the sentiment out of a small panel of Just Jade cardstock using the Well Written Dies and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Just Jade 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots to the card front.  I adhered the card front to a Just Jade card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Shaded Spruce Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the Bokeh dots image from the Stampin’ Up! Beauty Abound Cling Stamp Set in Soft Sea Foam Ink around the sentiment.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Soft Sea Foam mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Just Jade card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the butterfly image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set in Shaded Spruce Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the bokeh dots image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set on the envelope flap in Soft Sea Foam Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!!
