Enchanted Butterfly Birthday Card. CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge - #526

 Good Morning Everyone,

Happy Friday! 

Today I'm taking part in the current CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #526 which is a great sketch layout. This is very simple, but has so so much scope to create with - I'm definitely going to use this again in some future creations.

I wanted to create a pretty Monotone card and picked Fresh Freesia - not a colour I use often, I'll admit I absolutely love how this turned out.


Fresh Freesia Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

3pc - 1" x 2 3/4"

Basic White Card Stock

2pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 3 1/4" x 7/8"

1pc - scrap


Take your Fresh Freesia card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base, adding one piece of Basic White to the card front, and the other piece to the inside.

Lay the three piece of Fresh Freesia into the centre of the card front. positioning then about 1/8" apart.

Stamp the sentiment from Charming Sentiments stamp set in Memento black ink on the 7/8" strip of Basic White. Add this to the card front over the three card stock strips with dimensionals, leaving a bit of the strips showing beneath it.

On a scrap of basic white stamp the butterfly image from Enchanted Butterfly stamp set. Clean off the stamp well, then flip it over adhering the detailed side to the block and ink up the solid side in Fresh Freesia and 'colour' in the butterfly. Fussy cut and add to the centre fresh freesia strip with a dimensional.

How easy was that? This sketch layout is fabulous and the card I've designed would look great in different colours, or with a different sentiment.

Do head over to the CAS Colours & Sketches Blog - you will find lots of inspiration over there for this particular challenge - along with past challenges too.
