Part II of Journal Page into a Card

Welcome to the Altered Pages  Blog today. 
We are in the final days of our collaboration between the Altered Pages Design Team and Rubber Stamp Depot.  Can I just tell you that I had a lot of fun incorporating the  deeply etched red rubber stamps  into my projects this month.  Here is a sneak peak...
Today's post is part II of a journal page turned Birthday card
(original journal page pictured below) and the part I post can be found here.
I will be honest...I loved the journal page so much that it was hard to chop it in half, but I am very pleased with the end result and it is for a most wonderful person, my Gram who turns 86 this June!  So, this card just had to be beautiful.  Plus, she LOVES butterflies! 

Okay, on with the show...
I started by creating the actual card using a cream colored sheet of card stock and folded it in half.
I inked the edges of the front of the card using Stazon Midi  in Gothic Purple and Spiced Chai.   
Next, I grabbed the Circles Background Stamp , Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder  and created a little embossed edge on the right side of the card.
I then attached the portion of the original journal page that I tore from my journal and inked the edges.  I left justified this piece to show off the gold embossing.
Now, it was on to the inside of the card.
I began this step by lightly and randomly stamping the entire page with Delicata Ink Pad - gold.
I then grabbed another page from my Dylusions Journal that I previously used to off load my brayer when working with my Gelli Plate  as mentioned in part I.  This was made with pale blue and gold metallic acrylic paint.  I added the Circles Background Stamp using Stazon Midi in Spiced Chai .
This same stamp was used in the journal page so I wanted to repeat it on the inside of the card.  I then tore a section to fit on the main inside page of the card and attached it using double sided adhesive tape.
Next, I used another section of the pale blue background, stamped Happy Birthday with Versamark and embossed it in gold.  I hand tore that section out, inked the edges and adhered it with double sided tape .  I added one of the butterfly images used in the original journal page to keep everything tied together. 
And, here you have the completed inside of the card. 
I love how the blue ties in with butterflies flying in the blue sky.
Here is the final piece. 
I am pretty pleased I must say and can't wait to send it off
to one of my most favorite people!
