Butterfly birthday

As I mentioned the other day, we have been talking a ton about CASE-ing and how to make a project your own at StampNation. One of the videos Catherine shared with this week was how she modified one of her own cards and came up with something completely different. It's amazing how the same basic design can change so much with a few different colors & details. I decided to take her sketch and make a card all my own. I had originally thought of changing the orientation, but decided I liked it better this way.

I started with a Pink Pirouette cardbase and a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch layer of Very Vanilla cardstock with I embossed with the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder. Then, I punched out 3-1 1/4 circles & 3- 1 3/8 inch circles of Beau Chateau dsp. I die cut the butterflies with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and adhered them with a glue dot, then embellished them with a Basic Rhinestone.

The layout of this card is also quite similar to one of the sketches from Day 1 of the Clean & Simple Card Making Class, only with larger embellishments.

Do you want to take the challenge? Head over here to join or learn more about StampNation.
