Here is a birthday card, that I made a little while ago, but I waited to post it until I gave the card to the birthday girl… except then I forgot to finish the post 😦
Ink: Memento Grape Jelly, VersaMagic Spring Pansy
Cardstock: White, Lilac
Dies: Memory Box Vivienne Butterfly and Darla Butterfly, Spellbinders Butterfly Circles
Embossing Folder: Butterfly (unknown brand, it was a free gift with a craft magazine)
Other: Pastel Basics Paper, Double sided tape, Kindy Glitz, Glue
Using the Darla Butterfly die and Pastel Basics Paper, I cut out the butterfly background. I then used the Vivienne Butterfly die and lilac cardstock to cut out the butterfly outline. I then adhered these, using glue. I set the butterfly aside for the glue to dry, once dry, I added Kindy Glitz, folded the wings up so they would “set” in place, and set it aside again to dry.
Using the Number 3 die from Butterfly Circles, I cut a circle from the white cardstock, and using the die as a mask, sponged with VersaMagic Spring Pansy ink. Using the Number 4 die from the same set, I cut a circle from the lilac cardstock. I adhered the white circle to the lilac circle with double-sided tape. I then adhered the butterfly to the circle.
After I embossed a piece of white cardstock with the butterfly folder, I applied Memento Grape Jelly ink to the edge of the embossed cardstock. I then layered this onto the lilac cardbase with double-sided tape, then mounted the butterfly circle.
Bye for now,
