SSS April Card Kit: Layered Butterfly Card and GIVEAWAY

Hi everyone!


I'm popping by to share a final card featuring the fabulous SOLD OUT Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit: Beautiful Day.


Here it is:


For today's card I die cut a piece of Lawn Fawn's Really Rainbow green patterned paper using Simon's Bundle of Stitches Dies and Stitched Oval Dies. I stamped the leaf images from the Beautiful Day Stamp Set using Simon's White Pigment Ink and shaded them in with Prismacolour Pencils. I used the Distress Blending Brush with the Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink on some of the Simon Says Stamp 120 lb White Cardstock to create the background for the butterfly. I stamped the butterfly on this background and again 3 times on one of the pieces of Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Patterned Paper. I paper-pieced the patterned butterfly, adhered the pieces together with foam squares. The sentiment was stamped on a piece of Simon's Island Blue Cardstock and added with foam squares as well. The whole panel was added to a piece of Island Blue Cardstock for I adhered it to my notecard.
