Wedding Card for PPA248

Welcome to this week's Pals Paper Arts Challenge. I loved playing this time, as the sketch was simple and it looked like a square shape to me, which gets me out of my comfort zone!

I made this card sort of out of order! I began with the banner across the top of all the other elements. I took one of the sentiment stamps from For The New Two and inked only one line at a time to create one long line instead of two short ones on top of one another. I used Baked Brown Sugar ink. Then I trimmed each end to look like a banner.

Next, I cut out my beautiful butterfly from Pear Pizzazz card stock using the Butterflies Thinlits Die. If you run it through the Big Shot twice, the piece comes out so easily.

Underneath the butterfly is the Kraft card stock rectangle that is textured with the Happy Heart Textured Embossing Folder.

I thought it needed one more layer and decided on Whisper White card stock. It looked a little plain when I set it behind the elements, so I chose one of the flower stamps from the same stamp set and I made my own designer series paper using Pool Party ink to match my card base. I added a few speckles with stamped-off Baked Brown Sugar ink.

My square envelope has the same flower image stamped in Sahara Sand and stamped-off Pool Party.

Your dsp is gorgeous! Of course, your card is beautiful too! I'm the same as you with the square. I can't make a square card to save my life.
