This is a card that I made to cheer up a friend having a bad day. I wanted something that said spring so I used soft subtles and butterflies. I also wanted to use my new Embosslits Butterfly Die from the Occasions Mini. It had been on backorder and arrived on Monday. This is a fun die! I really like the way it turned out and I think it cheered my friend up as well.
The ingredients for this card are:
- Cardstock: So Saffron, Lavendar Lace, Very Vanilla
- Designer Series Paper: Sweet Pea, Welcome Neighbor
- Stamp Set: Of the Earth
- Classic Stampin’ Pads: Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink, Lavendar Lace
- Tools & Accessories: Big Shot, Dazzling Diamonds, Scallop Trim Border, Stampin’ Up!® Beautiful Butterflies Embosslits Die, 2 Way Glue Stick
So there is nothing really special in terms of technique on this card. I cut a variety of butterflies in a variety of colors using different DSP papers, adding a touch of Dazzling Diamonds to a few of the butterflies. For my stamped images, I started with the lightest color and then finished with the darkest color. I varied the heights of my flowers as they would appear in nature and then layered my image on some of my designer series papers. I also layered DSP onto my Lavendar Lace border to the left of the card. I added the butterflies last using my adhesive only on the center part to give more dimension.
God Bless and Happy Stampin’!
