Less is More #69

The Less is More challenge #69 is to use a shaped card.
I am also entering it into

Squigglefly #21 a CAS card

Crafty Sentiments Designs anything goes

To create my card blank I used the largest die in my Nestabilities Blossom set making sure that the folded edge of the card fell inside the die to create the hinge.  I then cut the shape again to use as the front of the card

I folded the front of the card blank in half parallel to the fold and adhered the single shape to the outer half.  I then cut three more shapes using yellow paper for the largest one and stamped the middle size with the flower.  I used my Promarkers to colour the flower 

To finish the card I attached the smallest of the shapes with 3d gel to form the stopper for the easel card.  I topped it with a stamped butterfly which I had glittered using glitter glue

The overall size of the card is 9.5cm, making this a really cute little card
Materials used

Blossom Nestabilities dies
Butterfly and flower stamps from Craft Stamper
