Stepping Up a Card Design Using a Few Embellishments

I love the simplicity of this card:

Stampin' Up! Affectionately Yours

For the beginner’s version, a layer of some of the patterned paper is the base. The butterfly silhouette was cut from a square of Whisper White Cardstock using the Elegant Butterfly Punch (item 127526) and layered over the floral pattern with Stampin' Dimensionals (item 104430).  I've stamped the Sunburst Sayings (item 140725) sentiment inNight of Navy ink (item 126970) on a Crumb Cake Cardstock (item 120953) banner and adhered this beneath the butterfly to finish.

But by adding just a few elements you can take it to the next level:

Stampin' Up! Affectionately Yours

To step up the finished design a few It’s My Party Enamel Dots (item 140554) were added for a fun pop of color to complement the yellow tones in the floral pattern. The embossed white panel around the butterfly using the Floral Affection Textured Embossing Folder (item 141713), which lends subtle interest to the project. For the sentiment in this version,  heat embossing  using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder (item 109132) on Night of Navy Cardstock (item 100867) versus the more basic stamping approach in the first version.  

A little texture was added with a little White Baker’s Twine bow (item 124262).

I hope you've enjoyed these ideas and that they inspire you to 'step up' your next project!
