Elegant Card and Video Link with Floral Boutique

 

TherDSC_0148 (2)e’s nothing more elegant than the crisp navy and white color scheme in the Floral Boutique Designer Paper. You will fall in love with the classy papers in this set and the variety of ways it can be used. This beautiful card would be the perfect way to make someone feel very special celebrating a wedding, anniversary, birthday, or graduation.  Two thinlit die sets make it easy to create the detailed butterfly and navy flower accents.

Start with a white card base 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.  That is half a sheet of white cardstock, scored and folded in half.  Adhere a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ rectangle of the navy stripe paper onto the front of the card.  Starting with a Night of Navy cardstock rectangle measuring  5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″,  cut the navy flower overlay on your Big Shot using the Detailed Floral Thinlit Dies.  You might want to watch the Stampin’ Up Video below before using this thinlit.  They give some great tips – especially the fact that you need to start with a rectangle the correct size!  Very important!

Before removing the paper from the thinlit die, use a die brush to loosen the cutouts.  Then adhere the cutouts to the front of the card on top of the striped paper with a glue pen.  Use the medium size Butterfly Thinlit to cut the butterfly out of Dazzling Diamonds paper.  Again the die brush will make it easy to remove the small pieces in the butterfly’s wings.  Pinch the wings slightly so they “float” above the paper and adhere the body of the butterfly to the card front with a foam strip.  Add a pearl to the butterfly’s head.

Stamp your favorite sentiment from the Floral Phrases Stamp Set with Night of Navy Ink on white cardstock.  Cut a rectangle around it.  Back it with a navy rectangle slightly larger, then a Dazzling Diamonds rectangle, slightly larger than the navy. Attach to card front with glue dot. Finally, add a silver cord bow to the edge of the sentiment.DSC_0149 (4)

Don’t forget to make the inside of the card as beautiful as the front!  The navy Washi tape in the Floral Boutique set makes a striking embellishment on the left side topped with 3 pearls.  There are several sentiments designed to go inside the card that coordinate with simpler sentiments for the card front.
