When I count ....

Hi Bloggers.

Another lovely sentiment today - this time on a feminine card.

For the background, I used a piece of Milk Card and inked through the Doodle Daisies Mask using Tattered Rose Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. Next, I randomly stamped one of the swirls from the Eco Green Embellishing Flourishes Stamp Set using Dried Marigold Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Intrinsic Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and inked around the edges with Dried Marigold.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Classic Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I cut a Spellbinders Labels 28 out of Pale Peach Card and pierced around the edges along the embossed line.

I made 2 flowers using Spellbinders Spiral Blossom 4 - 1 made from Pale Peach Card and 1 from Milk Card which I inked through the die with Dried Marigold before rolling. I added a Pearl Swirl instead of leaves.

I cut a solid butterfly out of Milk Card using Spellbinders Les Papillons and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I cut a matching lacy butterfly out of Pale Peach Card using another die in the same set. I folded the wings upwards on the lacy one and glued it to the solid one at the body using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
