This stamp set and these colors just reach out to me each time I need a soft gentle card.
Base: Blushing Bride - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
Very Vanilla - 5 1/4" x 4"
Sponge the edges with Soft Suede. A trick we learned at Convention for sponges and daubers is after you ink it up, tap once onto scrap paper or your grid paper if you use it, then when you go to sponge the edges of your paper, you'll have a softer look every time instead of getting a heavy blotch of fresh ink.
The honeycomb stamp is also inked with Soft Suede and then stamped off once before placing it onto the card.
The fern leaf is inked with Pear Pizzazz and the flower and stem are inked with Stampin' Write markers Pear Pizzazz and Blushing Bride.
To give the butterfly some extra depth, I cut out one in Blushing Bride and one in Vellum. I love the way it turned out. What do you think?
Gently curl the butterflies with your bone folder. Add some Pearls for a bit of glam and your card is ready to go.
In mailing this card, I cut an additional piece of cardstock 5 1/4" x 4" and placed it over the pearls. This keeps them from popping through the envelope and being damaged.
Thank you for looking in today!
