March Club project #1

This is the card we did for Club this month. There are several steps, but nothing too difficult. I didn't originally design this card for club, I just thought it turned out so nice, we should do it for club :)
  • Stamps: Tres Chic BG, Sanded BG, Thought & Prayers, Spring Song, Baroque Motifs
  • Paper: Pink Pirouette (card front and 2"x2-1/2"), Sahahra Sand (2-3/16"x2-11/16" and 1"x 5-1/2"), Whipser White (2-3/8"x2-7/8" and 3/4"x5-1/2"), Vellum cardstock (2"x2-1/2")
  • Ink: Pink Pirouette, Sahahra Sand, Versamark
  • Accessories: Silver brad, white grosgrain ribbon, white embossing powder, glue dots
  • Tools: Embossing Buddy, heat gun, paper piercer and mat pack, distressing tool from Cutter Kit, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Big Shot and Beautiful Butterflies die
  1. Stamp Tres Chic in Pink Pirouette on card front. Stamp Sanded in Sahara Sand on cardfront. Ink edges of card front in Sahara Sand.
  2. Distress edges of rectangular pieces of PP, SS, and WW. Ink edges with Sahara Sand. Adhere together.
  3. Use Paper Piercer and Mat pack to create faux stitching on matted rectangles. Use Sahara Sand marker to creat the "thread".
  4. Distress edges of WW and SS strips. Ink edges with Sahara Sand. Use Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to center phrase on white strip in Sahara Sand. Stamp the small flower in PP and SS on each side of phrase- you can use the SAMG for this also.
  5. Rub embossing buddy over the Vellum. Stamp floral branch a couple of times in Versamark. Sprinkle with white ep and shake off excees. Heat with heat gun until EP melts. Allow to cool for a few seconds. Place face down on smallest butterfly on Beautifull butterflies die and run through the Big Shot. Fold butterfly in half. Apply a glue dot on fold.
  6. Apply to matted rectangle. Use Paper piercer to poke a hole for the silver brad that will make the butterfly's head. Apply brad.
  7. Adhere completed elements to the card.
  8. Take a 3" piece of ribbon, tie in knot. Apply glue dot to back, then apply to card.

All done!
