Start with a Flirty Flamingo cs card base. Cut a Sahara Sand Love You Always Foil sheet panel and a Basic White cs panel.
Die cut out detailed butterflies from the center of the Sahara Sand Love You Always Foil sheet panel since you only need the edges to show under the Basic White cs panel and can use the detailed foil butterflies for the card front. Then dry emboss the panel & die cut detail butterflies with the Retiring Subtle 3D embossing folder.
Die cut out some scrap detailed butterflies from Basic White cs. Use a tiny bit of Stampin' Seal on the butterflies (rubbed the butterfly on my jeans to lessen the sticky) and use the butterflies as a template across the Basic White cs panel. Use a blending brush to add Flirty Flamingo ink over the butterflies to create a background and then gently remove the butterflies.
Glue the Basic White cs panel to the embossed Sahara Sand Love You Always Foil panel. Cut a piece of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon and use the Dark Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend to color the ribbon. Wrap the colored ribbon around the panels using Stampin' Seal to secure the ends on the back of the panels and then glue them to the card base.
Add glue to the back of an embossed Sahara Sand Love You Always Foil butterfly (I used my Silicone Craft Mat to make sure I didn't get glue everywhere) and add it to the left side of the card front overlapping the wrapped ribbon. Stamp the sentiment from the Beautiful Friendship stamp set in Memento Black ink on Basic White cs and then punch it out with the Tailored Tag Punch. Use Stampin' Dimensionals to add the sentiment tag to the right side of the card front overlapping the embossed butterfly and colored ribbon.
Tie a small bow with the colored Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon and use glue dots to attach it on the bottom of the sentiment tag. Add Champagne rhinestones to the embossed Sahara Sand Love You Always Foil butterfly for extra sparkle.
Don't forget to add a Basic White cs inside panel. I used a post-it-note to mask off a strip at the bottom of the inside panel to add Flirty Flamingo ink with a blending brush. I also added an embossed Sahara Sand Love You Always Foil butterfly to the bottom of the inside panel.
I used a scrap butterfly and a blending brush to add Flirty Flamingo ink to the bottom of the back of the card to pull the theme through. I also stamped the Stampin' Up! logo from the Handmade for You stamp set in Memento Black ink.
