Today’s project share features the Stampin’ Up! Best of Butterflies stamp set, which is the April stamp set for the Stampin’ Up! Best of 25 Years celebration. The three butterflies on this card is one of the stamp images from this stamp set.
This is a simple card to make, and it is made with two Stampin’ Up! card stock colors that are returning in June – the Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry. I love these two colors as they are bold and am excited about them returning. I love bold colors, and I tend to lean toward using them more often.
Because the 2013 color is Emerald, I shared that I believed Stampin’ Up! would bring us a similar color. I’m so happy that I was right as I love Bermuda Bay. As a matter of fact, I used it on a recent card before I knew about Stampin’ Up!’s decision. I am lucky that I still had some of the card stock in both colors! On with the card details!
On the card front you’ll also notice that I used the Stampin’ Up! Flower Garden Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I decided to color the flowers in a reddish-orange shade.
The center butterfly, shown here, is raised with foam circles. The same image is stamped onto the card underneath the raised butterfly. I used Bermuda Bay and Crushed Curry Classic Ink for the butterfly images.
The image to the left gives you a better view of the center butterfly, the raised one and the stamped image.
Actually, I first stamped the butterfly images onto the Whisper White Card Stock and then decided to emboss the card stock with the Flower Garden Embossing Folder. It gives the appearance that I used the masking technique.
