Simply Sketched Thank You Card

Guess what?!!!
YES, the Courier did a Saturday delivery for me, and waiting inside the rather large box, was the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Circle Card Thinlits Dies!!!
This is my first project using the new Circle Card Thinlits Dies, a “Thank You” card which I was asked to make for lady at our “Women Connecting” Craft Group.
Also in the box were a couple of new stamp sets “Yippee-Skippee!” and “Simply Sketched” … ahhhhh bliss!
On the flipping scallop, on one side I stamped in Staz On Black the gorgeous flower from the “Simply Sketched” stamp set, then used the Crisp Cantaloupe Ink Pad and Aqua Painters, + then blended with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Marker to give the flower graduating shades of colour.
The stem of the flower is coloured in Old Olive + the Aqua Painters to blend.
Around the outside of the flower, to illuminate it, I used a wash of colour from the Baja Breeze stamp pad, with the Aqua Painters.
On the other side of the flip, I stamped the words “Awesome … thanks!” using a masking technique. I covered the words “Awesome …” with a Post-It note, then stamped with Staz On Black (onto the word “Thanks!”), then used the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Marker to colour in the word “Awesome …”.
I really wanted to add a star with Glimmer cardstock, but had run out, so improvised by painting some of my glittery nail polish on to white cardstock, then once dry, cut the star from the Circle Card Thinlits Dies, and attached with dimensionals.
I used one of the small Framelits from the “Chalk Talk” set to attach the 4 strands of Organdy Ribbon in “Calypso Coral”, and tied in a bow.
The butterfly is made with the Butterfly Embosslits, in layers of Crisp Cantaloupe, "Beau Chateau" DSP and Vellum. I then stranded together some Organdy Ribbon in “Calypso Coral” to create the butterfly antlers.
The Beau Chateau DSP on the extended flap is embossed with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.
