Simple Card Sunday 4 - Kinda Eclectic Card

Happy Simple Card Sunday!  Today I'm sharing a card I came across on Pinterest a while back (and do you think I can find it if you made and pinned a card like the one I'm sharing today, thank you for your inspiration!).  I loved the layout and simplicity of this card and thought it would be perfect for Simple Card Sunday.

Remember, for it to be a candidate for Simple Card Sunday it has to be able to be made in 5 easy steps, take 10-15 minutes to complete and use minimal supplies!

Here are the 5 easy steps:
  • Fold the Crumb Cake cardstock in half (5 1/2 x 8 1/2).  Stick the Tangerine Tango piece (3 7/8 x 5 1/8) on it.  Set aside.
  • Using the Kinda Eclectic set, stamp the dots with Crumb Cake ink and the leaf with Moss Meadow ink on the Whisper White cardstock ( 3 3/4 x 5).
  • Apply a strip of Retro Fresh Washi tape over the top of the dots and bottom of the leaf
  • Stamp the butterfly with Cajun Craze ink on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Punch it out and put a Stampin' Dimensional on the back.  Add some Linen Thread (stick on the dimensional) loops.  Stick the butterfly on the card.  Add 3 pearls to the body of the butterfly.
  • Stick the stamped white piece to the Tangerine Tango piece.
Check out the video so you can see me make the card in real time.

And, here's another card made with the same layout.  For this one, I used the new Festival of Trees set from the Holiday catalog.  I am loving this set almost as much as the Wonderous Wreath set!!!!
