Hi everyone. I’ve gone a different route to the most recent cards. And – I’ve read the rules for the challenges more closely, after the last time! My advice – read, then read again, then read again!
Anyhoo…….for this card I have used three ‘twinchies’ and stamped a layering butterfly from a Hunkydory set I have, using my Altenew inks. (You just knew there would be Altenew somewhere, didn’t you?)
The base card is Kraft card, with an embossed ‘pinprick’ design from Sue Wilson/ Creative Expressions as the first layer. I love those embossing folders, as they give really good dimension and texture when you use them. This one is called ‘Checkboard Pinpoint’, and gives a checkboard and dot effect.
After embossing that, I lay out my butterfly twinchies, but thought it looked a little boring. I had a hunt around my card and paper stash, not really looking for anything in particular, and came across this vellum with a bronze/brown/gold pattern on it.
I stuck that to the brown embossed card using glue which would be underneath the twinchies, therefore hiding it. I stuck the twinchies down with foam pads, and turned my thoughts to a sentiment.
I wanted a die cut sentiment and went to my Katie Skilton set, as I liked the look of the arrow, and that the sentiment could almost be suspended and flying – just like the butterflies…..well…..that’s what I thought, anyway.
I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge – ‘going dotty’
Addicted to Stamps and More – ‘anything goes’
Cardz For Galz – ‘add texture’
Moving Along with the Times – ‘Butterflies’

I love this card.. it’s a fab layout and I really like the texture of the embossing and the way the sentiment flows across.. so perfectly balanced 🙂
