Card Series - Birthday Card #2

I recently watched Jann Gray's YouTube video on the White-On-White technique and wanted to have a go at it myself and this is what I came up with.

card front
I used a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" white card base, cut a piece of white cardstock to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8", ran it through the Flourished Frame Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I then stamped a newsprint on white cardstock, coloured the entire area with some distress stains and die cut the leaves & branches using Tim Holtz's Autumn Gatherings Alterations die.

The sentiment on the front was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and die cut with a Spellbinders Labels Eight die.

The leaves and branches were adhered with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive, the sentiment piece was adhered using pop dots.

The butterflies were punched from a piece of white cardstock which I ran through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder using the Martha Stewart butterfly punch & adhered using Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive.

The inside of the card was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then I adhered two leaves between the sentiments.

The envelope was made from an 81/2" x 8 1/2" piece of white paper, stamped & sprayed in shades of green & yellow.
