Sparkling Butterflies

July 2, 2013

Thought I would share this card we made at a recent class.  I found a similar card on Pinterest and thought it was beautiful and an excellent showcase for the gorgeous Flower Garden Embossing Folder.  Of course my card is a little different from Shana’s but I thank her for the inspiration.

0084The Pool Party Core’dinations card is embossed with the Flower Garden Embossing Folder and then sanded to show the beautiful whie core of the card.  I also sanded around the image and along the edges to give it a more distressed look.  The card is wrapped with Whisper White 1/2″ Organza Ribbon and tied in a knot before attaching to scored and folded Whisper White card.  The butterflies are punched from Silver Glimmer Paper and wrapped with a length of Early Expresso Baker’s Twine before attaching to the card front with Glue Dots and dimensionals.0094

Inside the card, I embossed the Flower Garden image once again and then used a sponge dauber and Pool Party ink to highlight the design.

The card is simple but oh so elegant and I love the sparkle from the butterflies.  What do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.
