One of the new Sale-a-bration stamp sets is A touch of Ink (free with a $100 purchase). This set is so versatile! For this card I cut a Sahara Sand card base measuring 5-1/2 X 8-1/2 and scored at 4-1/4 and a card front measuring 4 X 5-1/2. I cut 3 pieces measuring 1-1/4 X 5-1/2 of each of the designs of the Love You Always Specialty Designer Series Paper. I die cut a piece of Basic White card stock using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I also cut a Basic White liner measuring 4 X 5-1/4.
I embossed the branch from the A Touch of Ink stamp set using Silver Embossing Powder on the rectangle and the butterfly on a scrap of Basic White card stock. I “fussy” cut it out the butterfly. I colored the leaves with Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers and I colored the butterfly with with Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends Markers.
To assemble the card, I adhered the strips of Rococo Rose and Blushing Bride paper to the sides of the card front. I then adhered the Sahara Sand paper in between the pink pieces. I then tied a Blushing Bride Metallic Ribbon around the card front. I then adhered the Basic White rectangle to the card front using dimensionals. I adhered the butterfly to the card front also using dimensionls. The liner and the envelope can be stamped too!
