This is another of the cards that Sylvia, the Pastor's wife has asked me to make for her. This card is for her Daughter. I wanted it to be really shabby chic and feminine for her. Sylvia told me that she really loves butterflies and all things pretty so I tried to hook her up with this card. :)
I started with a 6x6 card base then using designer paper by Pink Paisley (I think this is Butterfly Garden) I just layered that on top of the card base, I made it in a peachy color out of Bazzill card stock so It already matched the designer paper. Then I layered a few different die cuts. The redish/Pink colored die cut is from Anna Griffin for Provo Craft. I got it in a bundle of die cuts and embossing folders from HSN a while back. Love all the pieces tho. It was a good purchase. The next die cut is also a piece of the designer paper and I cut it with a Spellbinders die and then took my Prima chalk edger in Pastel Pink and stenciled thru the die. You know Spellbinders makes dies that you can cut, emboss and stencil. I added it on top of the first layers with pop dots. The sentiment is also a die cut but it comes from the cricut. It's one of the Close to my Heart cartridges that have matching stamps so I die cut the shape then used Hero Arts shadow inks in a green color to stamp the sentiment with the coordinating stamp. I also added that piece on dimensional foam. I added matching flowers from The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby and then to finish off the front I layered a couple of laces and then that brown trim to the top of the lace, Oh I can't forget the butterfly, I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and punched it from some of the designer paper and added it as a finishing touch.
This is a shot of the inside of the card. I just took a piece of that designer paper and I've inked all the edges using my Prima chalk edger then layered the designer paper first then the cream layer next. I stamped the birthday sentiment in that same Hero Arts Green ink that I had used on the front of the card. I think you guys have all seen me use this stamp before, It's not new and I've surely gotten my money's worth out of that little stamp. lol. I use it alot, so to say. I made sure to leave plenty of room at the bottom for Sylvia and Art to have space to sign.
That finishes this post for this card, I hope you enjoyed it. I heard back from Sylvia later that her Daughter just loved the card and just that alone makes it all worth wild for me. I love what I do even if I stress out about the blog post and you tube videos lol. I'll try to be back tomorrow with another card, this next one will be a shaped card. I will try to get in as many post this week as I can b/c I may not be able to post much the rest of the month. I've got a lot going on, I'm taking prom pictures this Saturday and then my birthday will be Monday and my Anniversary will be the next day and then I will have Chloe coming over on Thursday and Friday (she'll be spending the night) and I have two Dr's apt next week and a butt load of crafty projects due. So just hang in there, I'll post as often as I can. Today is my dear Brother's bday and I want to wish him a happy birthday and I want to post his card one day this week.. I may make two post in one day to make room for it. we'll see. I also will be wanting to post my anniversary card. So lots more to come! Stay tuned!
Till next time, I hope you all have a very blessed day. Much hugs and love, Amy K.
