Chelsea Paper - Thinking of You Card

Here is the last one of our February Card Making Class. Simple but elegant at the same time.

For this project you will need:
- a piece of Crystal Blue cardstock at 
   3 3/4" x 5"
- Chelsea design paper (stripes) 3"x4"
- piece of white cardstock 2 3/4" x 3 3/4"
- a strip of blossom cardstock
- and a small piece of white cardstock

The card base is a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" one folded on the top.

Center and adhere the Crystal Blue cardstock to the card front. 
Use the "Chelsea Gardens" stamp set and stamp leaves in Fern ink in the corner. I stamped the image ones fully inked and then a second time without re-inking the stamp. This is how you get a lighter impression of the leaves. Add a phrase just above the leave.
The white stamped cardstock piece is adhered in the center of the striped design paper.

I adhered the striped paper directly to the card base, but you could lift it with some foam dots as well. While you could center this piece with even spacing around on the card, I decided to placed it on an angle to give it more interest.

The flower was stamped in black ink on a piece of Blossom cardstock and the cut out with scissors.

The butterfly was stamped on the white piece of cardstock and also cut out with scissors. The butterfly then was colored in with some pink and blue pencils.

Both pieces are attached with foam dots to the card base. A little rhinestone is finishing of the card.

Oh and let's not forget the inside of your card. Stamps like flowers or leaves are always great to decorate the inside. If you happen to have a nice phrase that will fit, by all means stamp it on the inside. Last, we all have a black pen laying around right? So why not doodle a little on the edges?
