Beautiful Butterfly – GDP032

I think I should called this card for this weeks Global Design Project Pretty in Pink, as pink is one of my favourite colours.


The Base card is Blushing Bride cardstock 13 cm x 13 cm, with the Birthday Bouquet DSP  cut to measure 11.3 cm  x 12 cm as the next layer, I then attach two strips of the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper to each side of 13.3 cm so that the finish piece measures 12 x 12 cm. adhere to base card.

To the centre of the card attach a piece of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper that has been punched on each side the Scallop Trim Boarder punch. Die cut the large butterfly from the Butterflies Thinlits using Blushing Bride Cardstock, I used the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to accent the butterfly, then attach to the front of card using the Dimensionals,


Stamp the greeting form the Circle of Spring stamp set using Basic Black ink on to a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock then punch the greeting out using 3.2 cm Scallop Circle punch, attach to bottom of card using Dimensionals. attach Pearls to the butterfly and scallop greeting..

Sharing in Your Sorrow


The Global Design Project this week is sketch challenge,

For this a simple sketch design I was not sure what colours to use after I had decided on the card I would make, so after some thought and trying different colours I decided on Whisper White cardstock for the Base, with Gold Foil Sheets embossed using the Decorative Dots emossing folder. For the next layer die cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Hexagon Hive Thinlits die then attaching it to the Gold Foil emboss piece then adhere to the base card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. adhere a strip of Gold Foil to the top of card.  On a piece of Whisper White cardstock stamp the Frame from the Rose Wonder stamp set and Sharing in your Sorrow greeting from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set  using the VersaMark ink pad then heat embossed with the Gold Stampin’ Embossing powder. Then die Cut the greeting piece using the frame from the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies, adhere to the gold strip. For the flowers I used the Petite Petals stamp set embossed using VersaMark ink pad and the Gold Stampin’ Embossing powder.the punched out using the Petite Petals Punch.
