Festive Friday #0080 - World Autism Day

It's time for another Festive Friday Challenge!  Every second Friday we post a challenge for you with a specific theme and a Inspo List of 10 items to choose from to create your project.  We encourage you to create a project based on the theme and Inspo List and then post it using at least 3 items from the inspiration list.

This week’s challenge #FF0080 World Autism Awareness Day

Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project and link up! #festivefridaychallenge  At Festive Friday, you do not need to actually celebrate the occasion. I hope you’ll make a card, scrapbook page or 3-D project and join us. You don’t need a blog to enter Festive Friday. Check out this link on how you can play along with this challenge. If you want help entering, please email me at stampinwithmelva@gmail.com and I’d be happy to help you! 

For today's challenge I selected bright colours, butterfly, patterned paper and ribbon to create this pretty card featuring the Butterfly Brilliance Stampset.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week. I can’t wait to see what YOU create.


  1. Cut Calypso Coral cardstock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and fold in half to form card base.
  2. Cut Designer Series Paper 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to card base using Stampin' Seal.
  3. Cut Calypso Coral cardstock 2 3/4" x 3 3/4".
  4. Emboss using the Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder
  5. Adhere on an angle to card base using Dimensionals.
  6. Cut Vellum Cardstock 2 3/4" x 3 3/4".
  7. Wrap ribbon around vellum and tie in a bow on the right hand side.
  8. Adhere on an angle (opposite to the Calypso Coral piece) using Stampin' Seal.  TIP:  Apply the adhesive on the left hand side in the spot where the butterfly will go so it is hidden.
  9. Punch out circle from Daffodil Delight cardstock using 2" circle punch.
  10. Adhere to left hand side of vellum
  11. Stamp butterfly and cut out using Die.
  12. Colour with Stampin' Blends - Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight.
