Butterfly Birthday Girl Card

So glad to be back, I've been sick since Easter.   I thought I would make a very simple card today as to not overdo it and make myself feel worse.
I followed this weeks sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches for the card layout.  I cut and layered up the center banner section first From MFT - Stitched Fishtail Flag Stax  Banner.  I ran the top white layer through my cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder before adhering the two together.  I laid it flat on my card and held in place as I butted the beautiful border die cuts up against it on either side and glued them down.  They are from Spellbinders Shapeabilities D-Lites Die - Flourish Trim.  Once I had those adhered in place I took the center banner section and popped it up with foam tape.  I really had to search my stamp stash to find something to fit on that tiny teal wavy banner from Madison Avenue - Mama Elephant that I shadowed in purple.  I found one to work perfectly to stamp Birthday in Memento Tuxedo black ink and then heat embossed with clear acrylic Embossing powder.   That awesome Birthday word stamp is from YNS Cupcake Day Stamp Set, as well as the word girl that I stamped in the bottom right corner just in black.

Wow I can't believe this is the first time I've used this beautiful layering butterfly stamp from HOTP Layering Butterflies Stamp set.  Since I decided to stamp directly onto matching colored card stock I skipped the bottom stamp layer number one and just went with the top two layers.  WOW!  So very pretty!   I stamped layer number two in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and layer number three with a deep Violet purple ink.  Then I simply added some clear wink of Stella in all of the areas that stamped purple, I wish you could see that in the photo.  I will definitely be using this stamp set more often... so beautiful and easy to mass produce.  I added some pretty purple Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest to finish this simple and easy card off.  Thanks so much for stopping by, glad to be crafting again and I hope to work on another card tomorrow.

Thanks for the smart tip on how to eliminate the base layer of a multi-step stamp. Very clever, and it really packs a punch! This is a beautiful card.

I hope you feel better soon. Thanks for joining us for our Cut it Up for our Butterflies and Bugs challenge!
