Happy Sunday, extra happy because we have another day off to look forward to. I am still working on the wedding invitations and fitting in a few other projects as well.
I made this card just for fun so I could use a set of Visible Image stamps that I won in their recent weekend celebrations.
I started by cutting the mats so I knew what size I had to work with for the top mat. I used the free stamp from Crafty Stampers magazine to stamp the edge of the paper with red and black distress ink. I did all the stamping and then I put some clear embossing powder over the design and heat embossed it.
I stamped the Inkcognito butterfly with CS Perfect Medium and heat embossed it with gold powder. I then used Old Paper Distress ink to ink over the page it did mix with some red distress ink that was left on my craft mat. I stamped the large butterfly separately with Black Soot Distress ink and heat embossed it with clear powder. I coloured the butterfly with Promarkers and then it was cut out. I attached the butterfly just by the body so that the wings could be folded up.
I received the No Regrets set of stamps as my prize. I stamped one of the stamps at the top and one at the bottom.
I think this would make a good birthday card. I do love the butterfly stamps.
We are hoping to go to Exbury Gardens tomorrow. The Spring flowers should be beautiful. I hope the weather is OK. Have you got any plans for the extra day?
