Birthday Butterfly for Can You Case It?

I made this card for this week Can You Case It challenge.  This week's challenge was a color challenge of Black, White and One Color.  I chose Melon Mambo for my color. I love that pink on black!  I am also linking this card at Seize the Birthday for the Anything Goes challenge.

Here are a few details about this card:

  • The Basic Black card base is cut 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" and scored at 5-1/2".  I stamped the 'birthday wishes' sentiment from the Build-A-Birthday stamp set using Versamark ink.  I heat embossed it with White Stampin' Emboss Powder and my Heat Tool.  Hint: use them Embossing Buddy first to avoid stray embossing power (I forgot that step!)
  • I cut a 3-1/2" square from the Neutrals DSP Stack and mounted that on a 3-11/16" square piece of Melon Mambo cardstock.  
  • I cut the large butterfly in Basic Black from the Bold Butterfly Thinlets. I cut another butterfly using the medium sized butterfly from the Butterlfies Thinliets.  The two layer together perfectly!  I attached the pink butterfly to the black one with a couple of glue dots in the center and used dimensionals on the black butterfly to attached to the DSP.
  • After wrapping the Melon Mambo ribbon, I attached the main piece to the card base with dimensionals.
Here are the Stampin' Up! products that I used for this card:
