Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance Belated Birthday Card

Mid-week has rolled around again BUT this time it brings an end to the month! Where did June go???? We are now half way into 2021 and hopefully the second half will be better than the first half for me and others who hit rough spots! Along with a new month tomorrow comes a change in Blogger. They used Feedburner to send my followers an email to let them know I posted. This comes to an end tomorrow. I am debating about using a free program or a paid one. Until I make that decision, I am hoping you will just visit my blog daily. I usually post no later than 9 AM (ET). Thank you for your following.

My card today is brought to you by the Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set and matching Brilliant Wings Dies. It is a CASE of Tami White.

My card base is retired Purple Posy (Fresh Freesia works too!) with a Basic Black mat. I stamped the butterfly images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on a piece of Basic White. I stamped the medium size butterfly on a scrap of Basic White and colored it with my Light and Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blends. I cut it out with the corresponding butterfly in the Brilliant Wings Dies. I rubbed pastel chalk around the outline of the stamped butterflies and then adhered the cut butterfly with Stampin' Dimensionals. I adhered the mats with liquid glue.

Then I added Stampin' Seal to the card front and adhered a piece of Fresh Freesia 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon. I stamped the sentiment from Best Year on a scrap of Purple Posy and adhered it to the ribbon with liquid glue.

For the inside...

I used the Turtle Friends Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment in Fresh Freesia and the turtles with Memento.

I'm playing at Through The Craft Room Door ATG Challenge and The Sisterhood of Crafters ATG.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you'll return tomorrow for our Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. See you in July!
