Forever Lovely Card

Here is how I created my card:
  • Flirty Flamingo cardstock cut at 8½ x 5½, scored at 4¼
  • Basic Black Layer cut at 4 x 5¼
  • Polka Dot Paper from the Botanical Butterflies Designer Series Paper cut at 3¾ x 5
  • Adhere these 3 layers together using snail adhesive
  • Mango Melody cardstock die cut with the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies - size 1¾ x 3¾
  • Whisper White cardstock cut at 2½ x 3½ and on one end cut into a banner 
  • On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock stamp the flower from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set 3 times using Flirty Flamingo Ink.  On one of them stamp off on a scrap piece of paper to make it a little lighter.  Die cut with the matching die from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies
  • On a scrap piece of Old Olive cardstock stamp the leaf from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set twice using Old Olive Ink and die cut with the matching die from the Lovely Flowers Edgelits Dies.  Diecut three other leaf shapes from the die set as shown in the picture below.  
Here is a close up picture of the flowers and leaves:

  • On the Whisper White Banner stamp the sentiment from the Forever Lovely Stamp Set using Flirty Flamingo Ink.  Use a sponge and lightly sponge around the edges of the banner to make it stand out.  Attach the banner to the Mango Melody Rectangle with Liquid Multipurpose Glue.
  • Arrange the flowers and leaves and attach with liquid glue to the banner in the top left corner and then attach the banner to the card with dimensionals
  • If you wish you can add rhinestones to the centre of the three flowers.

Hi, today is my first time participating in the Happy Stampers Blog Hop.


Eva and I have created cards using this sketch:



The card I created used the Butterfly Gala Bundle.  I chose to use this bundle again as I am waiting for my order of new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration Brochure items.  Can't wait!

Below is how I created my Butterfly Gala Card:
  • Daffodil Delight cardstock cut at 8½ x 5½ and scored at 4¼.
  • Gorgeous Grape cardstock cut at 4 x 5¼ and adhered to the card front.
  • Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper cut at 3¾ x 5 and adhered to the Gorgeous Grape cardstock layer.
  • On a scrap of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Varied Vases and die cut with one of the Layering Circle Dies.
  • From Gorgeous Grape cardstock die cut a scalloped circle from the Layering Circle Dies and adhere the Whisper White sentiment circle to this.
  • Using Highland Heather Cardstock cut a strip ¾" x 3¾ and snip the one end to form a banner.
  • From the Botanical Designer Series Paper cut a strip ¾" x 3¼  and snip the one end to form a banner.
  • Stamp the Butterfly Stamp using Memento Black Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punch out with the Butterfly Punch.  Colour both the large and small butterflies using Daffodil Delight and Highland Heather light and dark blends.
  • Attach the large butterfly to the top of the sentiment circle, add some Gingham Gala Self Adhesive Sequins in Highland Heather and 4 Rhinestones down the centre of the butterfly.
  • Attach both banners on the card using snail and then attach the sentiment circle using dimensionals.


Here is a picture of the inside of my Butterfly Gala Card.  I added the small butterfly that was punched out at the same time as the larger butterfly and the sentiment also came from the Varied Vases Stamp set.
