Butterflies and Poppies.

Hi there Everyone,

Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday.   Today I would like to share a card I made for Imagination Craft's back in February 2013.    I have used the same stamp as my previous post - 'My Poppy Tag.'    As I only took one main photo of this card and I no longer have the card,  I have taken more photos from my photocopy,  which are quite good,  I'm relieved to say, so here we go!   hope you like it.  

Make a base card 6"x6" from turquoise card.   Matt a piece of shiny black card onto the turquoise card, slightly smaller than the base card.

Cut a piece of white card slightly smaller than the black.   Stamp the poppies  twice down the left hand side of the white card.   Put the card and  'vine leaves' stencil  into an embossing machine and emboss.   Leaving the stencil in position, colour the design with distress inks.   Colour the poppies with distress inks.

Spread some bright red Sparkle Medium through the stencil, down the right hand side of the card, spreading the Sparkle Medium out  to practically nothing, using the metal spatula.

When dry, fix a ribbon down the card, securing on the reverse of the card.   Glue this to the black card.   Cut out and emboss the label from white card.    Colour the inside of the label with distress inks.      Cover the outer edge of the label with Imagination Craft's gilding glue and cover with their red gilt gilding flakes.    Stamp 'Hi' and leaf stems to the centre of the label using a black ink pad and fix to the card using sticky foam pads.


Stamp the butterfly 3 times onto white card and colour with distress inks, cut out and glue to the card front.   Finally add a  ribbon bow to the top of the label.


That's all for the moment, I will be back soon.

                                                                  Love and rainbows,

                                                                     Hugs   Jennifer xx.
