Blue Botanical Butterflies

Hello Everyone!  This is Chrissy D here.  I am SO excited to be joining the Design Team for Classy Cards 'n Such!  Classy Cards 'n Such has a wide variety of product and beautiful stamps! On the card that I am sharing with you today I used several FABULOUS products from her store...

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Ballet Blue cardstock folded in half.  I layered it on Lilac and Vanilla cardstock.  I stamped the smaller images from the Botanical Butterflies stamp randomly across the background in Lilac ink.  I then ran the cardstock through the Big Shot with a floral embossing folder.

I stamped the beautiful butterfly stamp in Versamark on Vanilla cardstock. I sprinkled gold embossing powder over the image and heat embossed it. The image was cut out with the Heart Circles by Spellbinders in vanilla cardstock and the Blossom Three die was cut in Ballet Blue and Lilac cardstock.  I used the Technique Junkie Newsletter and technique from from the October/November 2011 issue and added Dimensionals between the layers to add a little dimension.The image was colored with Prisma Color Pencils.
I couldn't resist using one of my FAVORITE dies from Bev's store called the Fanciful Flourish in Amethyst cardstock and cutting it apart to have it lay across the card. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Crafters Tools too. This helps the cardstock pop out of those detailed dies!!! 
To finish off this project, I added Chuckles Tear Drops using Mini Glue Dots to attach to the corners! 
Please come again on FRIDAY, February 10th to join us in the NEW CLASSY CARDS CHALLENGE!
