On Wednesday a new Product Focus was published on Splitcoaststampers. This time we got to review the Perfect Squares Tool. So when I was creating a card for last Sunday’s Featured Stamper Challenge, I used that tool to cut and score my layers.

The Featured Stamper was Angela R. I hope you have time to check out her gallery on SCS. She creates beautiful cards. For my case I chose this cad of hers. I kept the layout, but changed the topper and the ribbon. I also added a little bling. Just a little. 🙂

I started by stamping the Butterfly from Taylored Expressions Make it Amazing in Jet Black Archival Ink and cut it out. The frame from the same set was stamped with Jet Black Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The frame was hand cut before a flower image was inked with Sky Blue and New Sprout Memento Markers and stamped in it’s center. A few dots in each color were added before the butterfly was adhered over the flower with Scor-Tape (under the body), and double stacked foam adhesive (under the wings).

A 3 1/4″ white cardstock square was cut and a border was embossed 1/8″ in. A sentiment from Make it Amazing was stamped to the lower right side with Jet Black ink. Honeydew Twine was threaded through a black button and tied around the layer before it was adhered to the card base with dimensional. The card base is a 3 3/4″ x 7 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half.

The image layers were adhered to the card with foam adhesive squares. Three rhinestones from a Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestone and Frost Smooch Glitz over the butterfly finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
