Butterflies

Hi Everyone! Well it is Sunday morning and the last day of relaxation before the week begins again. I am hoping to finish of the house work today and get into the craft room.

Well today’s card I started with soft blue card stock for the card, folded it in half and set aside. I then took a cream piece of card stock and a piece of kraft card stock and cut to the size that fit the card. On the kraft card stock I stamped Hero Arts, Cling Flourish Background stamp in Colorbox Ink, Frost White, I also blended the edges of the kraft card stock with the same ink, I then took my white gel pen and added some white dots over the stamped image. Next, I took some soft green card stock and punched 27 butterflies out with my Martha Stewart, 3 in 1 Classic Butterfly Punch, I then adhered a layer of butterflies onto the kraft card stock to form the pattern that I was after and proceeded to add another 2 layers on top of each butterfly to give them dimension, once these were dry I added feelers to each of the butterflies and a rhinestone to the centre of each. Each of the kraft and cream card stocks were adhered together with dimensionals and added to the blue card. Lastly, I added a Hero Arts, Truly Appreciatd sentiment to the bottom of the card along with some more rhinestones to finish the card.

Here is another view of the card to see the dimensions of the butterflies.

This card reminded me of Spring when all the butterflies come to fly around the garden.

I hope you enjoy today’s card and that your weekend is great!

Catch everyone tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by.
