Post 7 June card challenge - days 4 to 7

The final four cards for the first week of the June card challenge.

Day 4. Make a card using no less than 3 ribbons. I cut the heart out of the top layer using my cricut. I stuck ribbon scraps onto the base card so that they showed through the cut out heart when I adhered that layer to the card. I used a white gel pen to do the faux stitching around the base card and the heart layer.

Day 5. Use a die cut. This was my second attempt at this challenge. It took forever to make the first card, which I never really liked, then I made this one in about 5 minutes without even thinking about it! I cut the butterfly out using my cricut and stuck it on the left flap of a gatefold card. The gatefold ends up being 4x4. I love pink and brown together! There are some glitter dots scattered across the patterned paper.

Day 6. Make a card using flowers. The flowers were hand cut from images I stamped (the same stamp set I used for the sympathy card for post 6) - the large and small flowers were both cut twice and then layered over each other. I used a script background stamp to add some interest to the flowers and edged the flowers with dimensional glitter gel. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder to impress a design on the front of the card.

Day 7. Make a card using the colours red, white and black. I like the way this card turned out. Simple but effective. The bird is made using a Stampin' Up punch.
