For my card, I used the gorgeous Inspired by Stamping stamp set called Butterfly Wings. See instructions for making this card below..
Cut the following layers for the card:
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Pink Pirouette card stock for card base
4-1/8" x 5-3/8" Very Vanilla card stock
2-3/8" x 4-1/8" pink striped designer paper
2-1/2" x 4-1/8" Crumb Cake card stock
1-1/4" x 4-1/8" pink plaid designer paper
Glue the striped paper onto the crumb cake card stock, aligning the bottom edges. Use a piercing tool to pierce a line of holes 1/4" from bottom and 1/4" apart. Starting on one end, crochet base row along the bottom of the card. Do this by tying thread onto the hook in a loop. Put the crochet hook through the hole from the front, grab the thread and pull through to front, wrap thread around hook and pull thread through both loops on hook (single crochet). After single crocheting across the bottom, chain 3 and turn around. Working in the single crochet stitches along the bottom, 2 double crochet, chain 3 and 2 double crochet in next stitch. Continue to other end. Tie off ends and secure in back.
Wrap crumb cake seam binding ribbon around piece and tie bow. Attach plaid strip. Attach piece to very vanilla card stock and then to base of card. Stamp greeting with crumb cake ink. Stamp butterflies on a scrap of very vanilla cardstock with soft suede ink. Apply single strokes of pink pirouette marker to butterflies. Apply a 2nd and 3rd stroke of ink to centers of wings to darken color. Cut out butterflies and mount to card with dimensionals. Bend wings of larger butterflies up a little to enhance dimension.
