Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #11

It is finally JUNE!!! I am so happy!! I have nine more days of work and then I will be on vacation for the summer and am SO EXCITED!!

Know what else I am excited for? To show you the card that I created for Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #11.

I chose to use the last row across for my card-inlaid design, mono-chromatic and scalloped border.

I started off my card by going through my scraps and die cutting butterflies using PaperTrey Ink's "Bitty Butterflies" Cover Plate out of various pink scraps to use for my "monochromatic" color scheme. I then stamped a sentiment using the matching "Bitty Butterflies" stamps in persimmon ink on a "Sweet Blush" card stock panel.

I layered the panel over a white card base and then did a combination of "inlaying" the die cut butterflies into the panel and popping them out of the card front using foam adhesive.

To emphasize the greeting, I used a Lawn Fawn die to cut a "scalloped" border to adhere below the sentiment.

My last step was to adhere a few pink sequins over a few of the butterflies.

I plan on giving this to my cousin for her wedding shower in June. It goes perfectly with her invitations!!

I thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to hop over to Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Blog to see what the other members of the design team created!!

Have a fabulous day!!
