Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…this month it is “Birthday”, and we each create a simple card every week using that theme!
I’ve used Stampin’ Up!’s Chasing Butterflies on today’s card since I think she is adorable! I have several birthday cards I need to send out this month!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Basic White cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- On top is a 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Pool Party cardstock.
- A 1-3/4 x 5-1/4 piece of striped Sunshine & Rainbows DSP was added towards the left side. Another 1 x 4 piece of coordinating Sunshine & Rainbows DSP was added towards the bottom.
- A Scalloped Contour Rectangle was cut from Basic White and stamped with the little girl from Chasing Butterflies in Memento Black Ink. She was colored with So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Pool Party and Natural Tones SU900 Stampin’ Blends. Her cheeks with Light Flirty Flamingo. The ground was stamped with Pool Party Ink. The scallop rectangle was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Only the word Celebrate was inked with a Basic Black Marker and stamped on a 1/2 x 2 piece of So Saffron cardstock, the end trimmed at an angle. It was added with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
- The butterflies were stamped with Pool Party Ink in the upper right corner.
- Two Brushed Brass Butterflies were added to the background.
This had a few more layers, but really is a simple card to make. The coloring takes the longest! Make sure to check out what Mary did this week for her “Birthday” Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary! Stay tuned next week for another Creatively Simple card!
