Beautiful Butterfly Birthday Card

Hello! Even though this is my last Guest Designer post for CropStop, it will not be the last of me using this fantastic stamping, embossing and die-cutting Butterfly Notes Collection by Couture Creations.  It is so versatile!  

My 4.5" x 6" card base is made with Core'diantions Cardstock.  I corner rounded the top left corner and sanded the base with my Core'dinations Sand It Gadget.  Don't forget to use the Dust Buddy after sanding! 

I stamped the Couture Creations image with Ranger Archival Ink onto Core'dinations 110lb paper.  The intricate stamp stamped beautifully! I spritz the image with yellow and purple mist and embossed it with the cooredinating embossing folder. I did this while the mist was still a tad damp causing the embossing to pop just a little bit more.  

Adding a mat of Core'dinations Cardstock and some patterned paper to my stamped image pulled in the colors a bit more.  I finished the card off by stamping my sentiment and adding some purple burlap string and brads.
