Spotted Background

Today I’m getting together with other Splitcoaststampers in Baltimore for a large shoebox swap. This is the card I designed for the occasion.

I used three Stampin’ Up! spots to create the background, following Beate’s tutorial on SCS. Then I stamped the image from Essence of Love twice in black StazOn, leaving room on the right hand side for the ribbon treatment. I used the double rectangle punch three times and weaved the Always Artichoke ribbon through the holes.

The butterfly was stamped in black StazOn on Soft Sky and Certainly Celery paper. I punched out the green butterfly with the 3/4″ circle punch. Then I adhered it to the blue one before punching that one out with the 1″ circle punch.

All supplies by Stampin’ Up!® unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Essence of Love
Paper: Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Soft Sky, Glossy White
Ink: Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Always Artichoke, Jet Black StazOn
Accessories: Double Rectangle Punch, 3/4″ and 1″ Circle Punches, Always Artichoke 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals
