Long Card

....and an excuse to use my new Martha Stewart punch again. Today's Limited Supplies Challenge on SCS was to make a long card (at least 4" x 8") and not use any designer paper. After I made the card, I also realized I was supposed to limit layers. Sorry...this is pretty many layers. Oops!

I cut an 8" x 8" piece of white cardstock and then folded it in half to get the 4" x 8" measurement for the challenge. I like to use Papertrey's White when making a white base because it's very heavy CS and "stands" up better (I think). The swirls are stamped in Versamark on the Saffron panel. I punched the black butterflies and glued them on the white squares with Tombo adhesive. Then I punched the Saffron butterflies and adhered them with a glue dot in the center only so the wings would raise up off the card.

Recipe ~
Stamps: Priceless, Hugs & Wishes
Paper: Papertrey White, Basic Black, Close to Cocoa, So Saffron
Ink: Versarmark, Versafine Black Onyx
Accessories: Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch, Black Brads, Glue Dots

Have an awesome day!
