Good evening Followers Friends and Visitors,
Can't believe tomorrow is Friday again ! Hope you are all looking forward to the weekend. I would just like to say welcome to Debbie Fisher and CraftyK my newest blog followers. I do hope you enjoy your visits to my blog and to all my older followers, thank you for your fabulous comments and regular visits, I get so much enjoyment reading all your comments. Well, onto this evening's card which I made for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts in January 2012 and uses the Spring Decoupage Stamp Set - Butterflies and their Lacy Swirls Stencil. ok then, let's get started.
Make a base card from white card stock landscape style. Matt a piece of black card onto the white, leaving a small border of white showing. Using a die-cutting machine and the round die (Nellies multi frames) and the oblong die (also Nellies), cut out one round and two oblongs from the dark pink paper. Matt some black card onto each oblong and glue to the base card. Using the black distress ink, lay the stencil onto a piece of white card and blend the black ink into the design on the stencil using a blending tool. Carefully remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.
When dry, cut into two oblongs and glue on top of the black oblongs. Cut a black oblong and glue across the centre of the two pink,black/white oblongs.
Stamp the main butterfly image onto white card and cut it into a circle and glue to the dark pink die-cut circle. Fix this to the centre of the black oblong. Stamp the main image using a black ink pad a further three times. Cut out the butterflies and 3D them onto the original image on the circle, using silicone glue.
Using the smallest circle die from the set, cut out the smallest circle from the dark pink paper. Glue a black circle to this. Stamp out the small butterfly from the stamp set, twice onto white card and 3D it. Glue this to the small black circle and glue the circle to the top left of the base card.
Make two pink and one black/white flower and glue to the bottom right of the card. Glue three white stones to the bottom left and three to the top right of the base card.
Well there we are, another finished card. Hope you like this one. Take care of yourselves until my next blog post in a few days.
Love and rainbows,
