A Clean and Simple Hello!

Hi Friends! Hope you are all having a wonderful day! I had so much fun creating this card since I was able to incorporate {3} challenges in one card!!! Plus two of the challenges were new for me so it was an extra special stamping time for me! Lot's of inspiration and fun to be had! The Color Dare blog posted a great color challenge with the SU colors: Cameo Coral, Bashful Blue, and Soft Suede! Then I found the Pink Elephant blog and they posted two fabulous card sketches and I chose this layout since I don't usually make cards in this size - so that was fun! Then of course the Our Creative Corner blog posted a challenge of keeping it clean and simple, so I kept my stamping to a minimum with just a simple sentiment from the Stampin' Up! Chic Boutique stamp set! I love the font in the 'hello' - it's just too sweet!

Stampin' Essentials Tips:
  • My card base is cut from a 12"x 12" Textured piece of Bashful Blue card stock! It's cut at 3-1/4" and scored at 6" (since it's 12" long). The fold is on the left side rather than at the top! Then I used my 3/16" corner rounder to round the top right corner!
  • I layered a pieced of DSP from the Thoroughly Modern paper pack on top! I love the pattern in the Soft Suede piece!
  • My Butterfly was cut out of Cameo Coral card stock then I added texture by running it through my Big Shot with the Finial Press Texture folder! The Whisper White button serves as it's body! I love either using buttons, brads, or ribbon for the center of my butterflies!
  • The Whisper White card stock trip is punched out with the Eyelet Border punch and the Soft Suede Polka-Dot Ribbon is layered on top!
  • My sentiment is stamped in Cameo Coral Classic Ink on Whisper White card stock then punched out with the Curly Label punch! I cut the punched out piece in half, and tucked it behind the ribbon!
  • Stampin' Up! has the perfect envelopes for this size card! The Whisper White Small Open-End Envelopes come in a pack of 20 for $7.50! Item number for ordering is: 107286
