Just A Note - PCCC #196

Welcome to the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch Challenge 196. Play along at #papercraftcrew #cardsketch
Hello Stampers!      PCCC # 196

Here is this week's opportunity to enter my card in the Paper Craft Crew Challenge # 196. The sketch provided is your template to create a card that contains all the elements of the sketch and compete with others to get bragging rights of being the TOP #1 PCCC PICK of the week.  The card above and left is my entry.  Here is how I made this:

  • Whisper White card stock serves as the base of the card, measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 after scoring and folding in half.
  • The DSP is from All Abloom paper stack, cut to measure 4 x 5 1/4 inches.
  • Card Stock - Mint Macaron and Whisper White was cut with the Layering Squares framelits with the scalloped edge.
  • Card Stock - Garden Green was selected for the butterfly in the center of the card using the Butterfly framelit.
  • The flower on top of the center of the butterfly was made using the small oval punch, 3/4 x 15/16 inches.  Seven or eight ovals were punched and layered on top of each other to form the flower.  The center of the flower was punched with the 1/2 inch circle punch and the silver center was punched on mirror silver paper with the 1/4 inch hand punch.  each petal was glued together on top of each other for form the flower and was placed onto the butterfly  with dimensionals.
  • The flower on the banner was punched from the Itty Bitty punch pack using the heart punch.  Four hearts were placed on a hand punched circle of Soft Sky 1/2 inch in diameter and another silver mirror paper hand punched circle was added to the center.  A 1/2 inch of white paper was bannered with the 1 inch square punch and the sentiment of " Just A Note" was added with Garden Green ink.
  • Finally a small piece of a silver doily was added under the greeting banner to complete the look and add some subtle bling.
That's IT!!  Very simple but a pretty card for a feminine recipient.  Hope you like it and if you do, please leave your comment.

Thanks for taking a peek and I hope you'll try making this simply easy card.
