Saturday Simple!

Happy Saturday and Happy Weekend......yoohoo! We traveled A LOT this week for our business and I told my husband that I was staying in my PJ's all morning today and just being lazy. I'm exhausted!

Today I have a simple card to show you for Saturday Simple:

It looks elegant and like there's lots of steps, but really the Big Shot Machine and a Sponge Dauber does most of it for you!

I started out with a Crumb Cake card base measuring 11" x 4 1/4", fold in half and sponge all the edges with Crumb Cake Ink and a Sponge Dauber.

Layer #2, Designer Paper Neutrals Paper Pack, cut at 4" x 5 1/4" and sponge all the edges with Crumb Cake Ink. Glue to card base.

Cut (1) doily using the Big Shot, Pink Pirouette Cardstock and the Paper Doily Sizzlits Die and sponge the edges using Crumb Cake Ink. Glue to the center of your card front.

Add to the center of your doily, (1) 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch cut with Crumb Cake Cardstock, and sponged with Crumb Cake Ink.

Layer (1) butterfly cut with the Silver Glimmer Paper and the Beautiful Butterflies Die. Glue to the center of your card front.

Add a Designer Button to the center of the butterfly and add a Rhinestone Jewel to the center of the button.

Stamp the sentiment from the Spoil Yourself Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock. Cut in a banner shape and glue in place by sliding the end under the button.
