The inspiration for this card was a a shelf full of different coloured magazines. To make this card you will need striped patterned paper of slivers of different coloured paper, two longer strips to go on the top and bottom of the shorter strips, butterfly stamp, sentiment stamp, and ink. First stamp the butterfly using the second generation stamping technique. For those that don't know what that means ink the stamp then stamp off the paper before stamping on your card, to get a lighter image. Then adhere the striped piece to the card for the "magazines" and the longer pieces for the "shelves." The longer pieces are the green stripe from the patterned paper I used. Then I stamped the happy birthday in the same colour as the butterflies but going straight from ink pad to paper. Finally round the corners and you have a very simple but pretty card.
