The Paper Players? Rich, fall, regal. At first I knew this would be a great combo for some fall leaves, but then I challenged myself to come up with something else. I stamped these regal butterflies in Cajun Craze, Bravo Burgundy, and Night of Navy. These color challenges are so good for me. They help me put together colors that I may not otherwise combine on a card, and they get me using some of my colors that I've ignored for a while. I haven't stamped in Bravo Burgundy since last Christmas! Over the past couple of months, I've fallen in love with Cajun Craze. I knew it would be a good color for fall, but it works with a lot of different combos!
I used several butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set to stamp my Very Vanilla card stock. The greeting comes from Sassy Salutations. After stamping the card stock, I cut it into 3 sections (two are 1-1/4" and the bottom is 1-1/2" tall). I then mounted those strips on Bravo Burgundy and then on some Cajun Craze Patterns DSP. I tied some Navy stitched grosgrain around those layers and then mounted them with Stampin' Dimensionals on my Night of Navy card base that I textured with the petals-a-plenty embossing folder. I sure love those embossing folders, they add so much rich texture to otherwise plain pieces of card stock.
