Goodbye Garden Whimsy

With our Retirement Party coming soon we've been busy designing the make & take projects and this was the one I designed.  Unfortunately we're not making this one so I thought I would share it with you.  I used the retiring set Garden Whimsy which I'm going to miss.  It's super cute!

Here's what I did:
  1. Stamp Butterfly image on Whisper White card stock. Stamp a second butterfly to cut out. 
  2. Sponge around the edge with Taken with Teal ink.
  3. Adhere White card stock to Taken with Teal card stock.
  4. Paper Pierce the butterfly's flying path.
  5. Cut out second butterfly and colour in dots with Barely Banana and Taken with Teal Markers. (I didn't cut out the antennas, just the wings and body.)
  6. Adhere just the body of the cut out butterfly to the first butterfly and prop up wings for a 3D effect.
  7. Punch out circles using the circle punch in Pink Passion, Barely Banana, and Taken with Teal and adhere to Pink Passion card.
  8. Sparkle the Pink Passion circles with Dazzling Diamonds.
  9. Emboss the Barely Banana card stock with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder and your Big Shot.  Adhere to card.
  10. Using Dimensionals, adhere the butterfly image to the card.
  11. Using the Stampin' Up Blossom Party Die, cut out flower and flower centre.  You will need to cut out all three colours, I did it at the same time by putting all three in at once.
  12. Stamp greeting on white card stock.
  13. Using the My Way Punch, punch the end of the white card stock so it looks like a banner/flag.
  14. Glue flower together but I put the greeting just under the flower centre.
  15. Adhere flower to card.
  16. Sparkle the butterfly and the flower centre.  And you're DONE!
There may be a lot of steps to this card but it is pretty simple to make.  And shockingly there is NO ribbon.  That's unheard of for me! :)
