DCWV Butterfly Garden Card

Good morning crafty friends,
I wanted to share a card I created using the beautiful DCWV Butterfly Garden Stack paper.
I also used several cut files from the Pazzles Craft Room to create this pretty card.
Here is a view of the card closed. It is the Gate Fold Card from the Pazzles Craft Room Fun Folds Card Set. The center floral medallion is a doily cut file and a flower cut file from the craft room. As you can see I just layered and sized the “flower” so that it had 12 layers. I lightly inked the edges of each layer with my Chocolate Ink and then staggered them. I added a pearl gem to the center. On the doily I simply added some White Opal Liquid Pearls for some more visual interest.
Here is a view of the card with the belly band off and opened. The center is a scalloped flap and the sides are decorated with the deco flourish from the Pazzles Craft Room.
This is a view of the center fold with the flap opened. I added in a beautiful Quick Quotes Vellum sentiment. I didn’t want to cover up the pretty design on the paper. I also cut it so that the design of the paper would more or less remain in tact. You can follow the floral stem up from the bottom center to the top center as well as the floral sprig. The picture doesn’t show that the paper is a really light pink with a deep chocolate print. It isn’t black and pink. So I inked the edges of the paper with my Chocolate Ink Pad. The center sentiment area is left blank. This card is for this month’s IFTL recipients so they need to be blank.
Here is a closer look at one of the side panels with the deco element cut file. I added a pearl in the center. I used some Maltball Bazzill Smoothie cardstock and it cut like butter.
Here is a closer view of the QQ vellum quote.
Here are the products I used to create this project
