Tapestry Butterfly Wishes

Hi folks, it's Holly posting today.  Have you seen the new background stamps in the Classy Cards 'n Such store?  I love the Cover-A-Card backgrounds because they are the perfect size to stamp on your cards, no matter if they are vertical or horizontal.  I've used the new Tapestry 2 Cover-a-Card background on this birthday card, and it's just gorgeous!  I love how it looks as a tone-on-tone background with a darker colored sentiment stamped directly over it.

I stamped the Tapestry 2 background with pink ink onto a pale pink card base.  The birthday wishes sentiment, from the Birthday stamp set, was stamped with a dark brown ink directly onto the tapestry background.  I used a small strip of Kraft cardstock (new in the store!) in the Garden Lattice M-bossabilities embossing folder and embossed it with my die cutting machine.  I wanted the pretty latticework to pop out, so I rubbed the embossed areas very lightly with a kraft ink.

This embossed kraft strip was adhered to the left side of my pink card base.  I cut a piece of darker pink cardstock with the pretty Lady Kate Edger die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and adhered that next to the kraft strip.  A strip of the White Cotton Flowers lace was affixed over the kraft piece where it joined the darker pink Lady Kate border.  Finally, I die cut the Exotic Butterfly, Small #2 from a dark brown cardstock and affixed it to my card with a small Joy Foam Pad.

I love how this Tapestry background is soft and subtle on this card.  It provides just the right touch of elegance for this feminine birthday card. I can't wait to see how it looks stamped with a bold color or embossed with a gold or white embossing powder - wouldn't that look wonderful?  :-)
I love this card, Holly!!!  It's so versatile that it could be used for just about any occasion!
