As my base, I used Tangerine Tango cardstock. My next layer was a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Very Vanilla which I stamped in twice off-stamped Crumb Cake with the baroque design from Background Builders (retiring). I just wanted a very light background design and this did a great job. Along the right border, I stamped the small butterfly image from Papillon Potpourri in offstanped Tangerine Tango and Crisp Cantaloupe.
The next layer was a double layer attached with dimensionals. The bottom layer was Soft Suede while the top layer was that wonderful piece of Venetian Romance Designer Paper that I described already. Along the right border, I trimmed the edge using the fancy lace of the Finishing Touches Edgelits. I love the way the Soft Suede shows through and highlights the design.
For my sentiment, I used three layers. The base was Soft Suede cut with my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and trimmed to 2 1/2". On top of that is a piece of Tangerine Tango Core'dinations cut with my Chalk Talk framelit, run through my Big Shot using the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder, and sanded. The final layer is Very Vanilla stamped with Soft Suede using the Fabulous Phrases stamp set (retiring).
The finishing touches for the card were a butterfly stamped with the large Papillon Potpourri stamp on the Watercolor Wonder Designer Paper using Soft Suede ink and cut using the Elegant Butterfly punch and attached to the top right of the card using a skinny piece of dimensional. I also added two flowers cut from the Tangerine Tango Core'dinations paper using the Petite Petals punch and then crunched and sanded. Their centres looked perfect when I added two large Pearls (retiring). I also tied a piece of the 7/16" Natural Trim through the hole left by the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.
I love the way this card turned out. I'm going to have to see what else I have in my retiring pile.
