I created this card for a challenge, but also with a friend in mind. When I went to post it to the challenge site, I couldn’t remember what challenge it was. Is it just me or does this happen to anyone else?
It is not one of those cards we like to create but none the less, we do them. I thought I would add “Thinking of You” instead of leaving blank or “With Sympathy”.
Again, I don’t have any measurements or tutorial, as I was in a hurry to get it in the post. However, I did consult my Colour Coach for my colours.
I embossed a piece of Pool Party CS with the Decorative Dots EF, wrapped a piece of Whisper White Stitched Satin Ribbon along the left hand side, prior to layering to a piece of Whisper White & finally to the Base Card – Old Olive. I tied a small bow & adhered to top of Ribbon with a Glue Dot.
I used the gorgeous Hostess Set – Floral Wings. The butterfly was stamped n Pool Party, flowers in Perfect Plum & the leaves in Old Olive Inks prior to running through the Big Shot with the corresponding Bold Butterfly Thinlits.
I decided that I was going to inlay my Butterfly back into a piece of Card, so I then placed the Oval Framelits over the top of the cut out Butterfly by running it through the Big Shot. I adhered a piece of scrap Whisper White Card to the cut out Oval Butterfly shape & adhered the stamped butterfly into the shape ensuring it all matched in.
The whole piece was then adhered to the Card Front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White in Memento Black Ink, cut into a Banner Shape one end & adhere to the Card Front.
I completed the card by adhering Pearls down the side of the sentiment as well as the butterfly centre.
I hope you like my card today. Be sure to check back in a couple of days for my 2nd one.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
