Butterflies With a Thank You

Friday, March 8, 2019

Hello there! Today I have a card that I made for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I made this card for my aunt because she does our taxes every year for free so I try to send her a card with a gift card. I started by cutting a piece of black card stock and a piece of patterned paper to the sizes I wanted. I stamped the three butterfly images onto some Bristol Smooth card stock, colored them with my Zig Clean Color markers and then die cut them. I stamped the sentiments onto a strip of black card stock and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I then adhered everything to a white card base. The center butterfly and sentiment strips are popped up with foam tape.

My Supplies:

Stamps: Hero Arts New Day Butterflies
Dies: Hero Arts New Day Butterflies
Ink: Versamark, Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers in Carmine Red, Scarlet Red, Lemon Yellow, Yellow, May Green, Shadow Mauve, Light Blue, Cobalt Blue, Persian Blue, Light Violet and Dark Oatmeal
Paper: Strathmore Bristol Smooth, Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White, Papertrey Ink True Black

Thank you for stopping by!
