Hi all! Vera here. This past few weeks I’ve been totally swamped with cards as Caring Hearts Card Drive was in full swing and just ended last week. So, pretty much every evening after work I spent my time unpacking and sorting through thousands of Christmas cards.
So, when it times to create, I feel like I need a little break from Christmas cards to avoid feeling burn out. I need some fresh break. Needless to say, I turn to one of my all time favorite from The Ton, the Transformation.
To start, I stamped and heat embossed the butterfly image. Then I watercolor this beauty and once it dry, die cut it using the matching Transformation dies.
Before adhering the butterfly to the card base, I stamped the card base with Delicate Polka Dots Cling Background. I want the butterfly to be the focal point, but didn’t want plain background either. So, this delicate polka dots is perfect for what I have in mind.
Once that done, I adhere the body of the butterfly directly on the card base and pop up the wing with foam adhesive. Finished by stamping the sentiment (from Peony Laurel set) with gold ink. Clean design with a pop.
Well peeps, that’s all from me today. I hope you enjoy today’s inspiration as much as I enjoy making it. Thank you so much for swinging by here. Cheers….
