Butterfly Grasses

Today I have for you the last card that my guests made at the make and take last week. This card was inspired by a card Jen Smith made. It's cute and pink! Take a look!

Stamps: Inspired By Nature, Very Vintage Wheel, Punch Potpurri
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red
Ink: Rose Red, Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Basic Black
Accessories: Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions die, 1/4" Pretty In Pink Grosgrain ribbon, Butterfly Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch

The card base is Whisper White cardstock cut at 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2". The card front was textured using the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Die in the Big Shot. A piece of Rose Red cardstock was cut at 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" and stamped with Rose Red ink with the Very Vintage Wheel. This was adhered to the bottom of a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" and punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch on the top and bottom.

A piece of Whisper White cardstock was cut at 2 3/8" x 3 1/2". The grass from Inspired By Nature was stamped with Old Olive ink. The sentiment from Inspired By Nature was stamped in Basic Black ink. This panel was adhered to the top of the Pink Pirouette punched panel.

The butterfly from Punch Potpurri was stamped on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the Butterfly Punch then adhered on top of the grass with a Stampin Dimensional. Some 1/4" Pretty in Pink Grosgrain ribbon was tied into a knot around the layers. All of these top layers were adhered to the card front using Stampin Dimensionals.

I just love how cute and fun this one is! Thank you Jen for the inspiration!
