I created this card as the Make and Take for a workshop a couple of weeks ago. (Thanks again Deb). I am only just getting around to showing you now!
This card was inspired by a card our team leader Ness had created. I used the ‘Elements of Style’ swirl stamped in Lucky Limeade. The greeting is from ‘Fabulous Phrases’. I don’t know if there is a particular name for this technique. I cut strips of the patterned paper from the Everyday Enchantment DSP, (love that paper!) and adhered these to a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock. When they dried I cut them out using the Butterfly Bigz die and then embossed it using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. It just gives it a little more texture Embossing it. After sponging the edges in Soft Suede, adding some organza ribbon and pearls (I did add 3 pearls to this later. It is better balanced that way!!), I then adhered the butterfly to the Very Vanila card. I punched the edge with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and adhered this to a Calypso Coral card base.
While creating this one I made another one.
The butterfly was created the same way but using the largest Die. I wanted to create this one vintage style. On the vanilla card I stamped the flower image from ‘Elements of Style’ and then spritzed the card with Crumb Cake marker. Then I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink. The dots are from ‘Create A Cupcake’. I curled the top right corner over several times, distressing it so the card separated in 2. This adds just a big more distressing. The greeting is from ‘Fabulous Phrases’ and stamped in Lucky Limeade.
The Vanilla Card was adhered to a Soft Suede mat and then Lucky Limeade base. I added a bow from organza ribbon as well as a Lucky Limeade Brad to the butterfly and adhered it to the card front.
Thanks for looking,
Have a good week,
