Sneak Peek 2014I just love the NEW Blackberry Bliss which is one of the 2014-2016 In Colors.  I used the card stock, Ink Pad, Marker, and Stitched Satin Ribbon in Blackberry Bliss.  It is such a rich color!  Have fun trying it out starting June 2nd when you can order it!  Also NEW are the Something to Say stamp set and coordinating punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Blackberry Bliss card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Watch this Video if you need more details.
2.  Cut your Moonlight (or other Designer Series Paper) at 2-1/2″ x 5-1/2″.  Attach with SNAIL leaving about 1/8″ Blackberry Bliss showing at the bottom of your card front.
3.  Attach your Stitched Satin Ribbon using the Fast Fuse Adhesive.  You can either run a strip on the back of the ribbon or run a strip on the card front.  This adhesive is NOT forgiving!  Once it touches the paper, the only way to get it off is to tear it off the paper!  This is both a pro and a con.  Attach it about 1/4″ below the top of your Designer Series Paper.
Tip:  Twist the Fast Fuse at the end of the ribbon to disconnect it from the roll.  Otherwise you will end up rolling the clear tape holder because a big extra length was pulled off the roll.  It will have left a little lump so you will know when you forgot to twist it.  🙂
4.  Stamp one Thank You, one large Butterfly, two small butterflies, and three flowers in Blackberry Bliss ink on Whisper White card stock.  Punch each image out with the coordinating punch.  Use the Modern Label Punch for the Thank You.
5.  Lay out all pieces in the desired positions on your card front.  Attach the Thank You first.
6.  Fold your Butterflies in half.  Put two Glue Dots in the center of the large Butterfly and attach to the center top of the card.  Position your small Butterflies as desired.  Use 2 Glue Dots on the wing touching the card.
7.  Round and shape your Flowers.  You can do this with the rounded end of your Piercing Tool and your Piercing Mat, or use your hand instead of the piercing mat.  I used my Bone Folder:  put the flower in the palm of my hand and inserted the point of the Bone Folder into the flower center and turned in around in a circle until the flower was standing up a little.  Use a Glue Dot to attach the flowers in the desired position.
8.  Put Rhinestones in the center of each flower, on your Butterfly’s head, and on your Thank You if desired.
9.  Admire your Elegant Blackberry Bliss Butterfly and Flower card!  Make your own today!

Happy Card Making!
