Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Janneke de Jong

Hi Blog hoppers! Thank you for coming by and having a look at what I have made today!
Today the Crazy Crafters are very lucky to be blog hopping with the super amazing Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrator Janneke de Jong!  I mean if you aren’t familiar with her work, click here and get yourself familiar NOW! You will be so glad you did!  You are currently visiting my blog – Sandra Mastello in Australia and you will be visiting lots of different places in your hop today. There is a list at the end of the page which will help you to move along from blog to blog so you see can see all the amazing projects.
While drooling over Jannekes’ blog I found this beautiful card, I knew instantly that this was the one I had to CASE as one of my lovely customers, Lorraine, had asked me a couple of times to do a card with this closure, so I wanted to be able to both gift her with it and help her to make her own.
The biggest problem I had with this card was how to make something different! I just loved everything about this card and I usually struggle to do something so delicate. So I decided to keep the amazing colour scheme as well as this pretty fold, but in true fashion I had to play with the elements a little.

 All cards use the Flower shop stamp set (130942) and pansy punch (130698) although I did use a different stamp on each one. The ink colours used are Pink Pirouette (126956) Crumb cake (126975) and Sahara Sand (126976) the card stocks used are Crumb Cake (121685) Pink Pirouette (116203) and Kraft (133674) The butterflies were cut using the Elegant Butterfly (127526) and Bitty Butterfly (129406) punches.  

I finished it all off with a vellum (106584) overlay on the butterflies coated in a little wink of stella (141897) and some Rhinestones (119246). The closure was done with the scalloped tag topper punch (133324) and Burlap ribbon (141487) or the 3/8" metallic ribbon free with qualifying sale-a-bration order.
