Floral Warm Wishes Card

Hello Stampin' Friends!

I'm going to try and post a few things each day until I have everything loaded from Convention 2012.  Then we will try and get back to normal.  But I figure you like seeing all the goodies and info from Convention, so those I will try and get posted first while it's still fresh.

Anyway, onto today's cards and such!

This card was for a swap that I did at Convention 2012.  It's from a swap that was called Over the Top.  We met at the Marriott on Wednesday night and had dinner and some projects and swapped.  Had a great time and would love to be a part of that again.

I call this card - Floral Warm Wishes

SU! Supplies Used
Stamps - Blooming with Kindness, Bring on the Cake
CS - Elegant Eggplant, Lucky Limeade, Very Vanilla
Specialty - Vellum CS
Inks - Elegant Eggplant
Punches - Elegant Butterfly
Dies - Fun Flowers
Framelit - Apothecary Accents
Emboss Folder - Perfect Polka Dots, Lattice
Jewels - Basic Rhinestones
Misc - Big Shot, Dimensionals, Glue Dots

This is one of those step-cards.  I had equal amounts on both sides and a little bit larger center.  But you could change it up and do it anyway you want.  I cut pieces of Lucky Limeade CS and embossed them with the Lattice Emboss Folder then attached to the card front.  I then diecut the flowers from the Fun Flowers Die using the Big Shot.  Once they are cut I then embossed them using the Perfect Polka Dots Emboss Folder.  I sponged the edges of the flowers using the Elegant Eggplant Ink, then layered the flowers with Glue Dots & Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiments using Elegant Eggplant Ink from the Blooming with Kindness set.  Then I punched 3 butterflies from Vellum CS using the Elegant Butterfly punch and then embossed them all using the Perfect Polka Dots Emboss Folder.  I attached them to the front of the card and then added some Basic Rhinestone Jewels to each butterfly center to add a little bling.  For the inside of the card I stamped the sentiment using Elegant Eggplant Ink with the Bring on the Cake set onto Very Vanilla CS. I then used the Apothecary Accent Framelits to diecut the shape and then I sponged the edges of the frame with Elegant Eggplant Ink. I diecut another shape from Elegant Eggplant CS and cut it in half and separated it to give a slight accent to the edges.  Then added 2 Basic Rhinestone Jewels and using Dimensionals adhered it to the inside center of the step-card.

I love the way the colors work together without over powering each other.  I think it turned out very pretty and elegant.  Hope you enjoy it as well.
