I managed to finish my last two cards today! Boy oh boy did that take a while. I was trying to be imaginative, which wasn’t coming easily today. And everything seemed so pink. Well, that was the point, lots and lots of pink. I do love it with the dark chocolatey brown!
I have a special place in my card-making heart for butterflies. They’re just so delicate and pretty.
I used a very old PSX stamp for the butterflies. You know a stamp’s old when the company hasn’t been around for years! I stamped the little guys in VersaColor Peony, and embossed them in Glitter Galore. Next, I cut them out and bent the wings a bit. I used foam tape to stick them to the card for a bit of extra dimension. Each little guy has a gem in the centre.. I think they were originally nail art gems!
I’m a fan of cards that sit upright like this. This can be achieved by cutting your 8 1/2 x 11” cardstock in half the long way so that you have two pieces that are 4 1/4” x 11”.
I bought the dandelion seeds stamp from Hero Arts a few weeks back because I think it’s simply beautiful. Or beautifully simple :-) Like in my other 3 cards, I stamped using VersaColor Peony ink, and embossed with Glitter Galore embossing powder. I don’t know what I’d do without Glitter Galore!
Oooh, and pink strip on the bottom I stamped using an Inkadinkado clear stamp and the same Peony ink.
Other Materials used:
Celebrate It Ribbon from Michaels, Martha craft border punch and tag punch, VersaColor Orchid ink (for edging) and Momento Lilac Posies ink.
One-sheet Wonder roundup
I deem it to be a pretty successful (and fun!) project.
