Stencilled shutter card

This was one of the very first projects I made for our Cardmaking workshops late last year...
Using a 6x6 butterfly stencil (£5.99) and acrylic paint, I simply stippled through the stencil covering a sheet of cream linen card. Once dried, I cut them out and scored the wings so they have a little more dimension! I also distressed over them with a little shabby shutters to match in the green ribbon and leaves. 

The card was a little bit of a cheat... It was already cut and scored.. Ready to go! 
Down the sides I have cut bars of marble effect cream & gold Centura pearl (35p a sheet) 

Using kaisercraft Pitter patter - baby cakes 12x12 papers I have cut and covered all the panels on the card - being a double sided paper, one side is covered in the flowers, and the reverse is pink and white text.

I've then added pink ribbon wrapped all around the card at both ends with a thinner green ribbon on top. The middle bottom jut out part is the same ribbon idea, just reversed.. (Thin pink ribbon on wide green ribbon) wrapped around just that panel.

Using my favourite flower die set, (£16.99) with a couple of flower heads, and leaves, I've die cut more of the cream & gold marble Centura pearl to create the flower sprays. 

The centre happy birthday was a gold peel off, coloured over with a green peel off marker, the card it is on is another square of cream & gold marble Centura pearl, but I've distressed around the edge and over the top with shabby shutters. 

Few added green pearls and that's this project done :)
