Rose Colored Butterflies - TSSC11

Here's a card I had created during my April Guest Designer time at Clear Artistic Stamps. I am quite fond of this one, and I just love these colors together - always have. I have a few other CAS creations to post too, now that Belinda doesn't need them for featured items on her site! :-) It's May already so there is a new guest designer busy creating projects - go check it out!

This card used Technostamper Sketch Challenge #11 - and I actually made it when the sketch was current but of course had to hold it to be debuted on the CAS website. That was a fabulous sketch, I must say. If you haven't checked out MJ's blog before, I urge you to swing by sometime!

Instructions for this card:

First let's cut paper!! Cut regal rose cardstock to 5.5" x 8.5", score and fold for the card base. Pierce the upper and lower right corners of the front of the card using the paper piercing template. Cut five pieces of white cardstock to the following dimensions: one at 3" x 3.25" and four at 1.25" x 1.25". Cut Wild Wasabi prints designer paper to 3" x 2.75". Cut So Saffron cardstock to 4.5" x 1.75" and Rose Red to 4.25" x 1.5".

Now, stamp the butterfly from Nature in Word stamp set onto two of the small white squares. Stamp the sentiment on another. Color the butterflies with colored pencils and gamsol. Sponge brown and rose inks on the edges of the decorated squares and arrange the butterflies and the blank white square on the piece of Rose Red cardstock so there is an even border all around. Use dimensionals to adhere the sentiment panel in the center. Mount onto So Saffron cardstock and set aside.

Mount the Wild Wasabi prints designer paper onto the white panel and adhere to the card base. Arrange the pearls along the side. Use dimensionals to attach the main image panel. Viola!
