GDP #006 – A Butterfly Birthday

I am sorry to say that I was a little late to the party this week for the Global Design Project sketch challenge.


I really did have the card done in time, however never got around to posting it.  So here is my take on this fun sketch.

As you can see, I stayed very true to the sketch.  The star of this card is the Butterfly which I stamped with the Butterfly Basics stamp set and cut out using both the Butterflies Thinlits and the Bold Butterfly Framelits which coordinate beautifully to make a 3D butterfly.  The sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set. The card base is Very Vanilla cardstock and the Designer Series paper is from the Pretty Petals DSP Stack, which is a 6″ x 6″ stack of wonderful designs.  I am actually almost through using a whole pad of this paper, which rarely ever happens for me.  Since the whole front of the card is DSP, I also cut a piece of Old Olive cardstock to adhere the DSP to in order to make it a little sturdier when I popped it with dimensionals on the Very Vanilla base.  The banner is Very Vanilla and Calypso Coral cardstock.

For a little extra embellishment, I added some pearls to the butterfly body as well as the end of the sentiment.
