Baby Card

Our friend Gisela asked for a baby card welcoming "Salma" into the world and requested purple with butterflies. I scrolled around some the SCS Gallery to get a little inspiration and came upon THIS card by Theresa Momber. I just thought it was gorgeous and I loved her layers of stamps so I wanted to recreate something similar.

This is what I came up with!
I used the cattail and small butterfly stamps from Papertrey Inks "With Sympathy" set and the large butterfly comes from 7 Gypsies Notting Hill set. I used Dusty Concord distress ink for the main panel and sponged all around. I added the scrolls with Memento Grape Jelly. I stamped the small butterflies with Memento Lavender so they stayed in the background a little more.

The large butterfly was stamped with Grape Jelly and colored in with prisma pencils and cut out. I colored in the body with a black jelly embossing pen and also used the clear jelly embossing pen on the cattails so they had a little interest.

Lastly, I stamped out her name with a Recollections letter set in Grape Jelly

Above is a close-up of the butterfly. It's raised up just a little because this card is being mailed to Switzerland - so Gisela wanted a flat card.

Finally - below is the inside of the card. I mimicked the scrolls from the outside of the card on the inside and added a PTI butterfly on the inside.

Thanks for taking a peek today! I was away on vacation last week - so I'm looking forward to crafting this week!
