Hey there, Bleeps! I'm happy to report that it's Friday Eve. This week has gone a little faster than last week for me, but I'll be glad when it's back to its usual pace. I'm still tired - going to bed WAY before my usual early morning bedtimes. That's probably the usual time for most.

Today, I'm sharing a card that uses a new favorite color combination of mine, navy and melon. I'm really into inking up everything now because it just makes it look finished to me. So, here's how I did it!

Thanks for taking a peek and enjoy your day!

  1. Make a 4.25" x 4.5" card base from navy cardstock.
  2. Trim cream cardstock block, stamp damask pattern, and ink. (TIP: When stamping a background pattern, cut cardstock first, then stamp image in the center and stamp your way to finish the paper to get an evenly stamped pattern!)
  3. Add ribbon and lace treatment.
  4. Die cut circle and scallop circle.
  5. Stamp circle lined pattern and mat on scallop circle.
  6. Adhere scallop circle to card front center with foam adhesive.
  7. Die cut two butterflies.
  8. Stamp one in melon and the other in navy.
  9. Embellish butterflies with rhinestones and adhere to circle.
  10. Stamp sentiment and adhere cream cardstock to card front.

Stamps :: Papertrey Ink - damask designs + take note (circle journal) + butterfly dreams; Waltzingmouse Stamps - say it with style (sentiment)

Embellishments :: KaiserCraft - rhinestones; Papertrey Ink - enchanted evening polka dot ribbon; Offray - lace trim
