Welcome to our Color Fusers hop for September! Our creations this month feature a gorgeous combination of Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot, Night of Navy, and Mossy Meadow!
My project today features the Very Versailles, Butterfly Gala, and Tasteful Textures stamp sets. I used a Crumb Cake base, as well as Very Vanilla for the background and envelope. Most of the images for this card were stamped off prior to stamping the final images, as I wanted to soften all of the colors a bit for this project.
To create this card, I took the Very Vanilla top layer and very lightly sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edges, as well as very lightly across the surface to give it an aged, almost light tea stained look. (It’s easier to see it in person, as it’s very subtle, but it’s definitely there!) I then took the script stamp from the Very Versailles set and inked it with Crumb Cake ink. I stamped it off three times before stamping the lower left and upper right corners. I then re-inked it, and stamped it off 5 times before stamping the other two corners. I did not stamp them all off the same amount, as I wanted there to be a difference in the shading of the ink on the background. I then stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow and the sentiment in Night of Navy. Both were stamped off once before stamping the final images.
The butterflies were stamped in Merry Merlot ink on Rococo Rose card stock, and punched with the Butterfly Duet punch. This punch coordinates perfectly with the Butterfly Gala stamp set! I layered my finished top layer with my base and Night of Navy middle layer. The top and middle layer are adhered with Snail adhesive, and then they were adhered to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. After the card was fully assembled, I applied pearls to the butterflies that were colored with an Ivory Stampin’ Blends Marker, so that they didn’t look so white against the Very Vanilla background. Once that was done, I added an inside layer with coordinating sentiment, and my card was complete!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Crumb Cake card stock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Night of Navy card stock middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
Very Vanilla card stock top layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches
Rococo Rose card stock piece for butterflies: 3 x 3 inches (both will fit on one piece)
