Pretty Pastel Card Tutorial - Rubber Dance Design Team Project

Hi Everyone,  welcome to another Rubber Dance Design Team post!

Today I have uploaded another You Tube tutorial using some more lovely stamps from Rubber Dance.  I had lots of fun creating this pretty pastel card.  It was great to make something so completely feminine.

The Resting Woman Collage stamp (C04-2E) was my inspiration for this card design.  It is such a pretty design and the little flowers in the image gave me the idea to use the branches of blossom as my card embellishment.

Flowers and butterflies go hand in hand and there is a lovely set of butterfly wings on the Collage Elements 1 stamp set (BK1-7G) which I used to make the pastel rainbow background and the butterfly embellishments fluttering about the card.

I think this card could be made with or without the words but I decided to add a couple of words that went with my lady deep in thought.  I took the words from a stamp on the Think Again (SET2 -M) stamp sheet that has lots of lovely inspirational sayings.  It is not the whole stamp which said Dream it, Wish it, Do it  but I felt that this resting lady was definitely only dreaming and wishing!!!

Cutting Guide

Cream Card - 11 1/2" x 5 3/4" scored at 5 3/4" or 29 cm x 14.5 cm scored at 14.5 cm
Cream Card for main image - 3 1/4" x 3 3/4" or 8 cm x 10 cm
Cream paper inner - 11" x 5 1/2"scored at 5 1/2"  or 28 cm x 14 cm scored at 14 cm

Here is the link to the tutorial with full step by step instructions on how to recreate this card.  I counted 4 different ways to apply ink to a project so lots of lovely techniques to try whilst making this pretty card.  You could easily pick a different set of colours for a whole new look.  I think it would look fabulous in blue, pink and lilac too.

There is a matching inner so this card will make a lovely card to give on a special occasion.

Once again I have had a lovely time designing with my Rubber Dance stamps and I know you are going to love them too.  Here is the link so you can pop over to check out all the other stamps over at on offer as well as the stamps I have used today.  You can meet us on Facebook too so please come on over and say hi!
