Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights Challenge-March - VOTING CLOSED!



     Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! I hope you are all doing great. Today, I have a new card for you. I found this great new blog run by Kylie Bertucci, an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator who lives in Australia. She is absolutely amazing! Once a month she holds a challenge called, "Kylie Bertucci's International Highlights" where she gives us a theme
and we make a project around that theme. Then, we post it on our blogs. Next, you get to vote for your faves! So I am asking for your vote! Please vote for my card here.
     Our theme this month was to use the stamp set All Things Thanks from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog. I started my card with a piece of Peekaboo Peach cardstock cut to 5-1/2"x 8-1/2" and then folded it in half. Next, I took a piece of Fruit Stand DSP and cut it to 4"x 5-1/4" and glued it down to the cardstock base. Now I wanted to make a banner on my card so I got one of the
gold specialty papers from the Pop of Pink DSP. I cut a piece of this to 2"x 4-3/4". I used the Triple Banner punch to punch the bottom edge of this piece. Next, I stamped the stamp I picked out from the set onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Watermelon Wonder ink. I used one of the oval Stitched Framelits dies to die cut this out. I wanted a little bit of color behind it to separate it from the banner so I used the Layering Ovals and cut out a piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock. I glued these two pieces together.
     Next, I pop dotted the banner piece onto my card. I took
my 1/4" hole punch and punched two holes at the top of the banner about an 1" apart. I took a piece of Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon and weaved it into the two holes. If you are wondering how I did this just let me know and I can do a quick video for you. The ribbon does show on the inside of the card but that doesn't bother me. For one reason the ribbon and cardstock are the same color.
     I then pop dotted the sentiment onto the banner. I placed
several rhinestones at the top and bottom of this piece. Then I wanted a little something on the right side of the card so I decided to use some butterflies. I got out the stamp set Papillon Potpourri and stamped out one large and three small butterflies. I used different inks for each one including Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, and Daffodil Delight. I took a small piece of a Stampin' Dimensionals and popped them up on
my card. I didn't realize until I was done with my card that I incidentally placed the three smaller butterflies on top of colors on the paper that matched them! Lol. I then placed a rhinestone on top of each one.
     I next cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 4"x 5-1/4" to place on the inside of the card. I took a piece of two washi tapes from the Tasty Treats set and placed them on the right side. And the card is all done!
Here is my supply list:
