Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Couture Creations Large Joe's Garden Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink using a Smoothie.

I stamped the foliage from the Justrite Multi-Step Flower Garden Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card 3 times using Mowed Lawn Distress Ink applied using a Smoothie. I added the flower stamp from the same stamp set using Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink, again using a Smoothie. I cut them all out using an oval die from the Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Die Set and cut mats from Black Card using the next sized die.

I cut the sentiment out of Black Card using the Justrite Best Wishes Sentiment Die Set.

I cut the largest butterfly in the Card Front Basics Set out of Black Card, the smallest butterfly out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die in the latter with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink.

I cut 4 corners out of Black Card using a pair of dies from the Card Front Basics Die Set.

I added a little CS Flake & Glitter Glue Highlighter to the centre of the flowers and added a little CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat. I also added some Glossy Accents to the hearts.
