Sorry for not posting last week, its been one of those super hectic weeks. I'm sure you know the type - everything seems to come at once - prepping for card club, ordering bits and pieces, Stampin' Up party for a friend, making and organising things for a craft fair (this past Sat), helping my dad with work on our roof, helping a friend with a crafty project or two of hers as well as the usual church meetings, house work and so on. I've hardly had time to stop!
Anyway, I now have lots of pretty things to show you this week as a result of not posting any of my makes from last week! Score!
Today's card is for my good friend Donna who's birthday it was on Friday. She is a loyal crafting buddy of mine and her favourite Stampin' Up! colour is Rich Razzleberry so I obviously had to make her a razzleberry card, right?! Right!
Stamp Set: Flight of the Butterfly
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Cardstock: Confetti White, Rich Razzleberry
Accessories: Rhinestones, Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon (Retired)
Extras: Frost White Shimmer Mist
So I started off by stamping the butterflies - I inked up the butterfly stamp in Rich Razzleberry and then stamped twice on scrap paper before stamping on the card for a paler background shade. Next I stamped the flowers, this time stamping off once on scrap paper before stamping on the card for a slightly darker shade. I was really trying to build up layers on this card without using tons of cardstock. I stamped and punched out the butterfly in Rich Razzleberry. I added some ribbon to the side of the card, stamped the sentiment and added the butterfly, finishing it off with a few little rhinestones. To just give it a little bit more glitz I spritzed it with the shimmer mist.
I thought I'd just finish off today with a little picture of inside the card - another little butterfly!
Please leave me a comment, I love reading them. Thanks.
Have a great day!
