Getting my card craeted this week was a challenge in itself. After creating a card & about to email it off to Kris for posting, suddenly realised I had used the wrong stamp set! Can you believe it????? Then after completing my 2nd card, I dropped a ink pad fair smack bang in the middle of the card, so back to the drawing board again. Serves me right for not closing my ink pads once I finish using them!!!!! That is in amongst loosing the Embossing Folder I was going to use, plus having to cut my butterflies a number of times.
Base Card – Chocolate Chip – 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ or 15cm x 10.5cm – once scored & folded in half
Layer 1 – So Saffron – 5 3/4″ x ” or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Chocolate Chip – 3 1/2″ x 3″ or 9cm x 7.5cm
Layer 3 – So Saffron – 3 3/8″ x 2 7/8″ or 8.5cm x 7cm
Layer 4 – Whisper White – 3 1/4″ x 2 3/4″ or 8cm x 6.5cm
I stamped my image direct onto Whisper White Cardstock using So Saffron Ink, then again with Chocolate Chip Ink, after first stamping off. With my Bone Folder, I scored the piece diagonally across the card, turned 90 degrees & scored again.
I inked the Whisper White Cardstock with Versamark, poured Clear Embossing Powder over the top, tapped excess off & heat set with my Heat Tool. This piece was adhered to So Saffron Cardstock & then to Chocolate Chip Cardstock using Snail Adhesive.
Using my Bone Folder & Ruler, the larger piece of So Saffron Cardstock was again scored diagonally, tuned 90 degress & scored again. I adhered the embossed piece to the So Saffron piece, ensuring I had the opposite side of the scored card showing.
I adhered a piece of ribbon across the bottom, stamped my sentiment in Chocolate Chip Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock, punched it with my Large Oval Punch & adhered to a piece of Chocolate Chip Cardstock which had been punched with my Scallop Oval Punch. I adhered this to the centre with a SU Dimensional. The whole lot was adhered to the Base Card – Chocolate Chip with Snail Adhesive.
I cut my butterflies with my Bigshot, adhered 2 smaller ones together & then onto the card. I adhered a small Rhinestone to the centre of the butterfly.
