Happy Friday!

I was just playing around today before the girls showed up for my workshop and this is what I came up with. It's really different from the cards I usually make as it doesn't have any ribbon! I'm usually the queen of ribbon. But I really really like this one :) And to top it off, the whole thing was made from scraps! Yeah! I also have been obsessed recently with 4 1/4 square cards. I think they are the perfect size!

Stamps: Great Friend, Heard from the Heart
Paper: Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Whisper White Cardstock, Walk in the Park Designer Series Paper
Ink: Basic Gray
Accessories: SU Markers, Dimensionals

1. Score 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 Baja Breeze at 4 1/4 and fold on score line. 
2. Cut three 1 1/4 x 4 panels of Basic Gray and three 1 1/8 x 3 7/8 of DSP. Adhere the DSP to the Basic Gray. Adhere panels to card base evenly spacing them.
3. Cut 3 1/2 square Basic Gray, 3 1/4 square Baja Breeze, and 3 inch square of Whisper White.
4. Stamp the leaves around the left side and bottom of Whisper White, stamping off twice before re-inking. 
5. Using the So Saffron SU Marker, ink up only the word "happiness" from the Heard from the Heart set. Stamp on Whisper White.
6. Ink the entire greeting with Basic Gray and stamp onto scrap piece of paper. Cut out words and adhere them around "happiness" using dimensionals cut in half. 
7. Mat the Whisper White square to Baja Breeze square and then to Basic Gray square. Adhere the entire piece to the card base.
8. Take a 1/2 x 4 strip of DSP and run it across all of the layers.
9. Stamp the butterfly twice and cut both out. Adhere together using dimensionals and then adhere to card base in upper right corner.
