Another Botanical Butterly

Hello Friends! This is Chrissy D here. Today I am sharing a card using the beautiful Botanical Butterflies from JustRite stamps set available at Classy Cards 'n Such. I stamped the image in black ink and colored it using Copic markers.  

The layout comes from one of Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenges. I started with 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" blue cardstock and scored it at 4 1/4" using the Scor-Buddy Mini Scoring Tablet. I layered the 5 1/4" x 4" artichoke cardstock on top of that and the 5 1/8" x 3 7/8" sand cardstock on that. I layered patterned paper on those. Classy Cards 'n Such has a wonderful selection of beautiful patterned papers that you can view HERE.

I used two techniques called Stacked Nesties and the Worn Wallpaper techniques from the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I used the Spellbinders ovals & circles to layer my dies, popping them up with the Joy! Foam Pads. I cut out some flourishes using the  Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourishes. In order to eliminate additional paper shims, I used the Large Cuttlehug to make a snugger fit. I also used the Crafter's Tools by Cheery Lynn Designs to help remove the Fanciful Flourish from the die and place it where I wanted it on the card.

To finish off the card, I tied a bow using the Eggshell Seam Binding.

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Have a wonderful day!

Thanks, Chris!
