Kre8tors 2022 March Blog Hop Sketch Challenge

Welcome to the Kre8tors 2022 March Blog Hop and this month we have a Sketch Challenge to help us with our card designs. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own wonderful designs using the sketch layout below.
For my card design, I followed the measurements and placement of the sketch pretty closely. With the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog retiring soon, I wanted to revisit some old favorites to create my card design. I chose to use the beautiful Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper to create my background and used one of the small butterfly die cuts from the Brilliant Wings Dies for my focal image. I love the soft and pretty colors in this designer series paper and I think it makes for a lovely Spring themed Thank You card.

The secret to this card design is the designer series paper. I cut one piece of the Hand-Penned Designer Series measuring 4 3/4" x 3 1/2" and then cut it into two pieces measuring 1 1/4" x 3 1/2" and 3 1/2" x 3 1/2". I flipped over one of the pieces so that I have two coordinating yet contrasting designs. I adhered them to the Soft Sea Foam layer, lining them up so that they appear to create one piece. For the focal design, I die cut one of the small butterflies from Gold Foil using the Brilliant Wings Dies. I also die cut the larger circle from the Tasteful Labels Dies to create the background and attached the center of the butterfly to it with Mini Glue Dots. The sentiment was created by heat embossing the image with Gold embossing onto the sentiment label. 
To assemble to card design, I wrapped a piece of the Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon around the card front to hide the seam for the two pieces of the designer series paper, and attached the ends to the back of the card front. I attached the card front to the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it up and add dimension to the card. Using Stampin' Dimensionals, I attached the butterfly focal image to the right side of the card, over the top of the ribbon. I added the sentiment label so that it slightly overlaps the top of the ribbon and the end hides underneath the focal image. To finish off the card design, I added Basic Rhinestone Jewels to embellish the butterfly and the sentiment label for a touch of bling.
