Birthday Card using Ariana

Here's a greeting card that I made for my friend's birthday using Ariana
Paper Packet and by following sketch#242.

To recreate this card you will need the following supplies and measurements:
Ariana Paper Packet (X7179B)- Floral 4.5" x 4.5", Blue 2" x 2.75",
Stripped 2" x 2.5", Green .75" x .5"
White Daisy Cardstock for card base 5" x 5" folded
Paper Doily
Artiste Collection Stamp Birthday (D1529)
Recollections Flowers
Color Ready Butterfly (retired)
Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge for the Ticket
Distress all the cut pieces from Ariana Paper Packet using the edge distresser. Adhere the small green patterned paper to the bottom right hand side of the floral patterned paper folding over about a .25" over towards the back (as pictured). Adhere the floral patterned paper centering in front the card base.
Layer the paper doily to the top left hand side leaving 2 cm border from the top and left hand side. Next place the dark patterned paper, followed by the striped patterned paper. Using 3D foam tape place the large flower at the bottom right corner of the dark blue patterned paper. Place the butterfly inside the foundry pin clip and insert into the 3D foam tape in the back of the flower. Using the baker's twine tie a knot through the button and secure using a  glue dot. Also place a smaller bling on top of the green patterned paper. Now, it's time to cut the sentiment ticket found on page 25 in the Art Philosophy instructional manual. The ticket was cut at 1.5" by selecting the 5th white key on the top row. If you want to manually cut a piece of cardstock for the sentiment, the ticket measures 2.5" x 1.25". I also tied baker's twine to the top right hand side and adhered securely using Tombo Adhesive. I hope you enjoyed this card and hope you will recreate your own.
