First off, I'm soooo excited to be a Permanent Design Team Member! I can't wait to share with you all year long!

To make this simple, yet gorgeous card, I started by taking the beautiful Thinking of You Flower Bouquet Digi and enlarging it in my Word program.  Next, I added the Happy Birthday sentiment and positioned it where I wanted.  So easy!  I love that the flowers come pre-colored and black&white!  My coloring skills are a work in progress, so I love that I can print it out already gorgeously colored!  How cool is that?  I them printed off my card front and trimmed down to my desired size. 

I then ran my cardstock through my die cutter to make the solid butterfly cutout.  After, I took a piece of 2" Tear-ific Tape and added it behind the cardfront (so the adhesive was facing the front through the cutout.  I took my Lemonade Glitter and sprinkled it over the cutout, burnishing into the exposed adhesive.  To make the super pretty Glitter Ribbon, I followed Demo Donna's technique and used Lemonade Glitter on one side, Aztec Gold on the other!  I tied a loose knot and adhered across the front panel, using a small piece of Tear-ific Tape on the back to secure.

Next, I added a few more strips of 1/2" Tearific Tape and adhered my cardfront to the back cardstock. I took my Quicky Glue Pen and added some sparkle to the bouquet of flowers using Aztec Gold on the centers and Lemonade Glitter on the petals.  I love using the Glue Pen for quick glitter accents!  To add some real pizzazz, I die cut a butterfly and used the Quicky Glue Pen one more time to add Aztec Gold highlights on her wings. I adhered it just over the glittery open butterfly inlaid diecut area using a Foam Square.

To finish off the card, I added a border of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape to my edges of my cardbase and added Aztec Gold Glitter.  Then I added the entire cardfront using Tear-ific Tape!

Digital Stamps are such a great, easy way to make a gorgeous card!

The next stop on our blog hop is Eret and you can find her blog here.

  11. Oh so lovely! I love the details in the cut out of the butterfly and the edging! I will have to CASE this idea! I have done the tape in other areas of my designs but not on the edge. It has such a classy effect. I have never used the digi art work but you did a wonderful job of pulling it all together. TFS

  12. Love, love, love!!!! All the glitter is perfect! This was a great way to utilize a colored digi stamp, with adding in the additional embellishments of glitter. I love the ribbon too. Yay for Demo Donna's technique! And, congratulations on being a permanent designer!!! So excited :)

  13. Very pretty. I can't believe the flowers are a digi. Excellent glitter use too :)

  14. This is so pretty. I love that it is a digi stamp. All the glitter is perfect, but my favorite part is the butterfly.
