Tulip...A Pink and Black Challenge

I created this card for a pink and black challenge.

Here is my recipe.
  1. 1. What you need to make this card is Stampin' Up! Basic Black 5 1/2" x 81/2" folded in half, Whisper White 5 1/8" x 4 1/8" and Pink Passion 4 5/8 x 3 7/8 card stock, Basic Black and Whisper White inks, Sizzix Tulipe Die, Texturz Plates Backgrounds 1, 3/16 Corner Rounder, Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and pearls from the Pretties Kit.
  2. First embossed the white and pink card stock with a Texturz Plate with the Big Shot and then take the Basic Black ink and rub on top of the Pink Passion to bring out the embossed image.
  3. Now place the Sizzix Tulipe Die and run it through the Big Shot.
  4. Round the corners of the embossed cardstocks.
  5. Glue white card stock to black and than tack pink down with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  6. On a separate cardstock stamp butterflies white on black and black on white, cut them out and add them to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  7. Finish card with adding three pearls to the top from the Pretties Set.

This is a close up of my embossed paper and my butterfly. It gives you an idea on how I layered my butterflies. I also cut a 4 x 5 of Whisper White for the inside of my card and used some of the Tulips pieces to boarder the corners!
