Butterfly Wings

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Floral Brocade PinPoint Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Salty Ocean Distress Ink.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Butterflies Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Persian Sea Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using scissors.

I cut 2 Justrite Vintage Flourish Two Dies and inked through the die with Salty Ocean. I added them behind the butterfly to look like wings. I cut a Basic Frames (Set A) from the Californian Collection from Cobalt Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, using Perfect Medium and embossed with Persian Sea Aurora. I cut it out using Sue's Border, Corner & Tag Die Set from the Spanish Collection and inked through the die with Salty Ocean. I added a couple of Mini Pearl Swirls either side.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to the top corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  25. Hi Julia,
    I'm still not getting your card each day - its the fault of my server I think as they made some changes. Not technical enough to sort it will wait for grand daughters help! Today's card is lovely as was yesterday's . Just looked at both of them. I love the colours anyway but both cards look beautiful. Your butterfly is lovely.
    Love Myra

  26. Hello Julia
    I love, love, love this card. I think I will be making my own version very soon. Thanks for the inspiration.

  27. Hi Julia

    A lovely card, butterflies are always a winner in my book. Clever use of the dies as wings, I love the colbalt card and I must use coloured embossing powder more! Trying to get a 2nd hand A4 machine as the folders are just too nice to miss out on any longer! Typical crafter, I want it all!!!
