Congratulations - Visible Image Butterflies

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

Well here I am at the end of the Easter holidays. I must say this has been a brilliant holiday. We have been to Suffolk and seen my cousin's daughter in Alice in Wonderland. We also visited Sutton Hoo while we were there. Then I had a brilliant time at Ally Pally followed by Beatles Day in Hastings. This weekend we have been in Sidmouth on our church weekend away. But the icing on the cake has to be that our daughter has just got her first full time permanent job which she starts next week.

I am so proud of her so I made her this card with some of my favourite visible image stamps.


I just love these stamps they stamp so well.


I started by stamping the border with the flower head that comes with the Congratulations Stamp set. I used two shades of Distress ink and then I head embossed them with clear powder. Finally I inked over the mat with a paler shade. I must admit I only decorated the edge as the middle of the mat was going to be covered.


I stamped the Inkognito Butterfly on the top mat then I heat embossed it with clear powder. I stamped the large butterfly on a separate piece of paper, heat embossed it, cut it out and stuck it over the Inkognito butterfly just by the body so the wings could be raised up.


Here is the finished card. I did enter it into the 3000 Likes competition on the Visible Image Facebook page. They are having competitions to win stamps all weekend. I hope the rest of the weekend is good for you. We will be heading home after lunch ready for work on Monday.

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
