Hi Everyone! TGIF!!! Whew – long, busy week – how about you? And here it is almost weekend and well, still full plate. Not complaining, just sayin’… Today’s card is not my usual style, it’s a bit on the modern side. The thing is – I really like this paper :O). It’s called Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP. This sort of ‘brush stroke’ look is modern and fun. The butterfly definitely softens the look.

Abstract Beauty Support.1

Several layers here, but that is what makes it fun – it keeps the eye moving.

  • Card base is Thick Basic White 8 1/2 x 5 12 scored at 4 1/4
  • Abstract Beauty background layer is 4 x 5 3/8 adhered to the card base
  • The next panel is also Abstract Beauty 3 x 3 1/2 and adhered.
  • The stripe layer is yet another panel of Abstract Beauty 1 1/2 x 5 and adhered directly
  • On a 5/8″ strip of Basic White, stamp the sentiment in Just Jade ink. The sentiment comes from Through It Together stamp set. I punched the one end with the Tailored Tag Punch. This was attached with dimensionals.
  • Die cut a Vellum circle with the Layering Circles Dies.
  • Adhere the butterfly about in the center of the circle with liquid glue just along the body.
    • The butterfly was created by using a Blending Brush and Balmy Blue, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz inks on a Basic White piece, then die cutting with the Brilliant Wings Dies.
  • Add dimensionals to the Vellum circle but just along the body of the butterfly. The reason is the dimensionals will show if added anywhere else and here they are hidden but still give dimension to the piece.
  • Add several Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels on the circle, butterfly and on the sentiment panel. Done!
Abstract Beauty Support, inside

For the inside I added a scrap of the background Abstract Beauty DSP with liquid glue. I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie ink – from the Through It Together stamp set. And the final touch here – two of the adorable and perfect Brushed Brass Butterflies. The Basic White panel was adhered to the inside of the card and voila ~ the card is complete.

The envelope got another bit of the same Abstract Beauty 4×6 DSP to the flap.
