It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time for the Stamp Review Crew. We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators focused on sharing a ton of ideas featuring a single stamp set. This week it's a set called Butterfly Basics. You have likely come from Lisa Young's blog on your way through this amazing hop. If you get lost, simply click on the banner for a list of participants and get back on track.
For this challenge I decided to do a 3D birthday card. I first saw this card style on Dawn Olchefske's blog and immediately dell in love with it. I used most of her dimensions which you can get HERE. I really believe in giving credit where credit is due. It's such a fun card to make and I've added a few touches of my own. I hope you enjoy!
Step by Step Tips:
- I love this color palette! Calypso Coral, Mossy Meadow, and Basic Gray go so amazingly well together! By using the Aqua Painter, and stamping off, I was able to get several different shades of these colors to create an entire spectrum of orange, green, and gray. The image was stamped using Memento Ink.
- The netting front, back, and top back images are full strength, but I found that using the netting image full strength under the greeting made the greeting extremely difficult to read, so I opted to stamp off the Basic Gray image for the panel under the greeting.All the fern leaves are also stamped off 2 times before stamping the image onto the project.
- And speaking of the netting, it was so easy to match up the edges to create a seamless background for this project Using the photopolymer set. By the way, this stamp set will be in the new 2015-16 Stampin' UP! Annual Catalog!
- The best part about this creation is that it fits inside a standard A2 envelope so no need to make a custom envelope unless you want to! Simple!
