Birthdays and Butterflies and a Card for the SUOC #215 Challenge-Birthdays

I already know you are wondering what SUOC stands for-Stampin' Up! Only Challenges. As my customers know, I am a Stampin' Up! only supplies person. Why not use the best when it comes to stamps, card stock, ink, dies, etc.!

Back to my #SUOC215 challenge card. This card came from my love of butterflies and the gorgeous Floral Romance Designer Series Paper, especially the vellum pieces. The floral piece in the middle of the card is a sheet of lovely vellum. Also, I'm so in love with the new Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder. My lucky customers will get to make this lovely card at my next card classes, so I hope you are signed up!
I also finished the inside to reflect the birthday theme.
To create this card:
Cardstock:      Fresh Fig 4 ¼” x 11”
                        Whisper White 5 ¼” x 4” (2), 5 ¼” x 2”, 2” strips
                        Floral Romance DSP 5 ¼” x 2” 

1.    Fold card base in half.
2.    Emboss white piece with Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Adhere to card front.
3.    Adhere vellum designer series paper to matching white piece and adhere to card 
4.    Stamp butterflies and butterfly body on white paper with VersaMark and heat 
       emboss with black embossing powder.
5.    Sponge butterflies with a dauber using Fresh Fig ink.  Start in the center making it 
       darker then lighter out on the wings. Highlight with clear Wink of Stella. Adhere to 
       card front.
6.    Stamp sentiment on Whisper white in Fresh Fig and cut out with Stitched Labels 
       framelit. Adhere to bottom right of card front with dimensionals.
7.    Stamp the inside as designed in Fresh Fig.
8.    Cut 2 decorative flourishes out of Fresh Fig cardstock with Be Mine Stitched 
       framelits.  Adhere to top and bottom of inside piece.  Adhere Whisper White piece to
       card inside.

Maybe you know someone who would be deserving of this birthday card!
