Simple Sunday - Elegant Congratulations

Simple Sunday - Elegant Congratulations

This card was actually inspired by my son.  We were talking the other day and he said I should do a card using red, black and a "touch of gold".  This is what I came up with!  I am posting this as a Simple Sunday may look more complicated than some other Simple Sunday projects but trust me when I say it's easy-peasy!

Step by Step

To complete this project you'll need cardstock cut to the following sizes:

5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Basic Black (card base)

4" x 5-1/4" Basic Black

3" x 4" Red Glimmer paper

Scraps Real Red (for sentiment) and Gold Foil (for butterfly)

1)  Use Big Shot with Detailed Floral thinlits to punch image from 4" x 5-1/4" Basic Black (place thinlits towards top edge of paper when cutting).  Adhere glimmer paper to back side of cut-out image.  Place two dabs of adhesive on back side of cut-out piece.  Attach one end of gold ribbon to one dab of adhesive, wrap ribbon around front of image and attach end to other dab of adhesive.  Attach cut-out piece to card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.

2)  Tear bottom edge of Real Rel cardstock.  Stamp "congratulations" on to Real Red using Basic Black ink toward left edge (leaving room for butterfly).  Adhere to card front. Tie a knot of gold ribbon around ribbon strip at top.  Punch butterfly image from gold foil and attach to card front with mini glue dots.
