Stampin' Up! Greeting Card - Blue Chateau DSP - Breast Cancer Awareness

Good morning and thank you for stopping by to see my Stampin' Up! projects.  I hope you enjoy them.  I decided that this week's posts will focus on Breast Cancer Awareness, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.  Don't forget to come back for each feature.

Have you tried the Stampin' Up! Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper (DSP) yet?  If you have, you'll agree with me that the designs are so pretty, especially the Soft Suede and Pink Pirouette design that I used on this card.  The design in person looks like a shimmery gold. 

Because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this card would meet a need for a card to give to someone who currently is struggling with breast cancer.

The card was made from a 11" x 6-1/4" piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock, and the fold of the card is called "Gatefold".  After folding the card, I cut the Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper into sections to match the card panels and attached them with Sticky Strip.  For decorations, I used the butterfly stamp from the Creative Elements Stamp Set (love, love this stamp set) to stamp twice the butterfly image onto a piece of the DSP.  Then I cut out the butterflies, decorated them with Basic Pearls, and adhered them to a frame made with the Designer Frames Embossing Folder.  To create the scallop border on the two front pieces, I used the Scallop Edge Border Punch.  The card inside includes images from the Thoughts and Prayers Stamp Set.

God's Blessings!
