To create my next card I tried to step out of my typical color choices.
So I opened up my Stampin' Up! Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book & Catalog to the Designer Series Papers (DSP) starting on page 158. Instead of looking at the DSP I was looking at the coordinating colors below each group.
Looking at Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP, I decided I found the color group I was looking for.
Ruby Red, Baja Breeze, So Saffron(DSP), Sahara Sand and I used Chocolate Chip, it tends to be a great color to go along with many.
With the aid of my Big Shot I created this card rather quickly.
Cutting a piece of Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla card stock with the Top Note Die Cut at the same time. You can actually cut 4 pieces at once with this die. It is one of my favorites.
I then used a pair of Paper Snips to trim down the vanilla top note.
Stamping the My dear,Kind & Wonderful Friend from the All Holidays stamp set in Sahara Sand Classic Ink repetitively until the entire vanilla top note is covered. I cleaned my stamp then stamped it in Ruby Red Classic Ink.
Using the Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! Butterflies die cut I quickly cut out a butterfly from So Saffron DSP. Added some 1/4" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon then attached the Butterfly to the card with some Stampin' Dimensionals so that the butterfly looks like it is resting on the page.
