How’s your day going? No better way to end the day than making a card and posting it on your blog. Some people can’t believe how I fit this all in, but after a full day of work I find it rather relaxing to make a card. Normally I already have a layout planned and after a few tweaks a card is usually born.
Todays card is for the CanYouCaseIt weekly challenge, this weeks it’s a sketch challenge:
To get started I am using the new Stampin Up Whisper White Thick Cardstock as my card base cut to 4.25″ x 11″, scored at 5.5″. There is a Mint Macaron mat, layer with So Saffron and a piece of paper from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack. For interest I used the Hearts Border punch on the one side of the So Saffron. Next I took some Linen thread looped it around to look like an “8” and attached it with some glue dots in the middle. The butterfly was stamped using the 3 step stamps in the Watercolor Wings stamp set and I used the matching die to cut out. I used the So Saffron, Calypso Coral and Watermelon Wonder stamp pads. The So Saffron butterfly is from the Butterflies Thinlits Dies. Once I adhered the butterflies together, it is adhered to the card with dimensionals. Pearls are used as an accent. The sentiment is from A Dozen Thoughts in Bermuda Bay and adhered with dimensionals.
Thank you for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the card. Don’t forget to check out the new weekly deals here.
