Butterflies Everywhere

Hi Bloggers,

Today I'm sharing this card that I didn't get to demo last week.

For this card I used Fancy Pants Girly Girl 12 x 12 paper. I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Nested Butterflies Two from the paper and inked through the die with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink. I used the reverse side of the paper and cut out the largest of the Butterflies Circles. Again I inked through the die with the Aged Mahogany. When I removed the circle from the die I kept all of the little butterflies to use in the background.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Beautiful Wishes Stamp Set using Plum Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners dies and again inked with Aged Mahogany while still in the die.

For the background, put some white card inside the Couture Creations Constellations Embossing Folder and ran it through the Grand Calibur. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern. I then inked it with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink.

I assembled the card as shown adding the little butterflies to the background with a little pearl in the centre of their body. I edged the card with some Cosmic Shimmer PVA in Berry Red.

Below is the card I demonstrated on the show last Thursday evening where I used Labels One in the centre, Bird Flourishes, a little Picot Edge Circle in the top right-hand corner and a border from the Damask Accents die set. The banner is from the same set as before. On this sample I used the Honeycomb Mask instead of the embossing folder.

Hope you like the cards.

Thanks for stopping by.
