SSS106 Sweet 'N Sassy 'New Creatures' Scripture Verse

The scripture is from Sweet'N Sassy Stamp set 'New Creature'.
Other Products used:
Stampin Up Cardstock: Pink Pir., White Textured, Vellum and Bridal Specialty Papers. Also Tim Holtz 'Seasonal'.
Ink: SU Soft Suede and Pink Pir.
Embellishments: Butterflies are Michaels G brand and Anna Griffin. The Rhinestones are 'Treasures By Shabby Chic'. Brads are SU Antique Brads and Butterfly 'Hot Off The Press'.
Misc. Supplies: Smooch spray, Sticky Strip, Embossing White Pearls (Joann's) and a sponge for antiquing.
Die Cuts are Kelly Panocci Valentine Emphemera.
Tools: Embossing Heat Tool, Sizzix Big Shot, Texture Plate, SU Heart Border and corner punches, Slot punch, SU Elegant Trio Stencils.

Cut Cardstock to make card base 5 1/4 X 5 1/4" (from Pink Card Stock). Fold card in half.
Cut next layer from a darker color. I used Tim Holtz antique looking solid paper from the 'Seasonal' paper stack. Cut 5 X 5". Attach using sticky strip around edges. Next Cut white textured paper same size as previous layer 5 X 5". Stencil flower blossom and florish (to look like stem). Flower is pink ink and florish soft suede. Run this white piece through Sizzix using SU large Polka Dot Texture Plate. Using a sponge antique at random around the white cardstock. Tear the corners away and randomly curl at edges. Added an antique brad in the middle of the large flower. Cut a vellum strip to measure the width of the white card-stock. Tear along 'long' sides at random. Attach about 2/3 of the way down the card with vellum adhesive. Using a slot punch cut a hole on the right side of the card (middle of the vellum) to put ribbon through. Tie a knot placing it just to the left side of the slot. Emboss the ribbon with a heat gun. This will make it crinkle. Make a few random butterflies by heat embossing on vellum. I used chalk on the underside of the butterflies (pink and green)and then cut them out with paper snips. The rhinestones are used across the body of the butterflies. I added a sizzix leaf cut-out at the bottom and a butterfly brad. Next I attached the white piece to the base of the card. The corners are curled up using a little water. I cut a piece of pink CS and used the heart punch tool around the edges starting with the corner. Next I stamped the scripture verse on white CS and cut a rectangle to fit on the previous piece. This I adhered to the pink and then using a sponge antiqued around the edges. This is attached to the card-base with dimensionals. The Angels and roses are attached using dimensionals as well randomly over the card. Also....I added a spritz here and there of 'Smooch' Pearl spray.

Any questions please ask! Thanks for stopping by....
