Butterflies and Blooms CAS Seniors Card

Butterflies and Blooms… guaranteed to bring a smile to the recipient’s face, right?  Today’s Clean and Simple (CAS) card share features two stamp sets… Blooming with Kindness along with the Summer Solstice.1_cascardbuttterfliesandbloomsThere are three card stock layers on today’s card… the card base, a 3-3/4” x 5” layer, and then the stamped and punched sentiment layer.  Only the sentiment is popped using stampin’ dimensionals… the other layers are quite flat and mail-able.2.bloominwithkindnessinpacpointink The blossom was stamped in Pacific Point ink, and then a rhinestone basic jewel was added to the center for a pop of bling.3.butterfliesandblingtimesthreeUsing the same pacific point ink, three butterflies were stamped and bling added to their bodies.  As a finishing touch, and to make the layer stand out a bit more, the edges of the stamped card stock were dragged through the pacific point ink pad.4.punchedandribbonembellismentTo make it stand out a bit more, the sentiment was stamped in contrasting soft suede ink, punched using a decorative label punch and popped onto the card stock over a scrap of midnight muse stitched satin ribbon.

It’s important to note, when attaching the sentiment… be sure that the stampin’ dimensionals engage the card stock and not ribbon… it sticks better that way!

Today’s card is the second of two we made at last weeks’ senior stamping session at Jim Fortuna Senior Center… and the ladies loved the clean simplicity of the card, hope you do too!

I look forward to reading your comments and appreciate you stopping by today.  All supplies for today’s card may be purchased at my online stampin’ up store …. and I do appreciate your orders… every little bit helps!
