Stampers Showcase Blog Hop - Birthdays!

Welcome to my blog today!

Today I have created a card for the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop.

This months theme is Birthdays

With Birthdays in mind and the end of Sale-A-Bration on 31st March I decided to make a Birthday card with the stunningly gorgeous Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and the pretty Butterfly elements. Both these items are available during Sale-A-Bration only. Sale-A-Bration finishes on 31 March -  so don't miss out!


First I cut the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper into a 7.5cm x 14cm strip. I glued this down to the centre of a piece of Whisper White Card stock that measures 9.7cm x14cm. I then glued it to a piece of Soft Sea Foam mat that measures 10cm x14.4cm. I then glued this to a Soft Sea Foam card base - 14.9cm x21cm scored and folded in half.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 
4.5cm x 1cm in Memento™️ Tuxedo Black ink. I then used scissors to banner the end.

I then used the Big Shot™️ to die cut the lace from the Doily Builder Thinlits™️ Dies in Soft Sea Foam. Also cutting the Stitched Circle Shape in Whisper White from the Stitched Shapes Framelits™️ Dies and another Scallop Circle in Soft Sea Foam from the Layering Circle Framelits™️ Dies. 

I glued the stitched circle to the scallop circle and placed this in the upper central position with dimensionals. I also glued the lace detail in Soft Sea Foam underneath the sentiment and placed the sentiment and lace detail on the left hand side of the Designer Series Paper using dimensionals.  

The ribbon was glued in place next. I then glued the butterfly elements to the centre of
  the stitched circle.

I really love the simplicity of this card and it came together quickly. This Designer Series Paper is very versatile and beautiful. I will miss it greatly. Stampin' Up!®  have this gorgeous paper available to customers as a free item during Sale-A-Bration! A free gift with AU$90 purchase. Make sure you get your Designer Series Paper by the end of the month if it is on your wish list!
