Yesterday was my mom's 85th birthday! Today we are celebrating at my house with just the grandchildren and my husband and me. I wanted to make a special card for her and remembered I had this die. I purchased it after seeing a card Jennifer McGuire created for the Summer Card Camp class from Online Card Classes. I just had to have it, but of course, it has never been used until now! I cased the card Jennifer created with a few changes.
The die was cut from white card stock that I doubled up for more stability (this die is very fragile). The butterflies are attached at different places on the die, but I cut them off so I could place them elsewhere. I covered the die with Versamark ink and Verdigris embossing powder. I did this twice. I ran a piece of card stock through an embossing folder and adhered it to the card front. I cut another piece and embossed the sentiment on it then sprayed it with gold mist. The butterflies were colored with copic markers and then embossed with a hologram embossing powder. It's very sparkly in person.
That's it! Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with a Just Us Girls photo inspiration challenge! See you then!
