well found myself with a delightful dilemma this last week - what to make for a wedding card for works colleague.
and having had a good browse around came across an absolutely beautiful one.
- which I am so sorry to admit I did CASE virtually 100% as thought it just perfect for what I wanted. Thank you so much Jaimie and Karen Conroy for the idea.
I used the beautiful Embossolits die to cut numerous butterflies in all the sizes - some stuck fully down, some only partially glued as to give the illusion of flight.
My beloved bits of bling for highlight and the addition of a sentiment mounted on the punched oval, atop the embossed oval frame completed the card topper. All this I matted and layered onto a layer of midnight muse, and this onto whisper white card stock to finish.
I used Vellum for the first time ever to stamp the inside of the card and really liked the effect.
..... and of course to complete my project had to make a matching envelope with my Envelope punch board - my must have of the week!
I lined my envelope with some tissue paper - which I had left over from a gift of my own - ever the recycling queen, me, and was really pleased with the overall result.
Things I used to make this card:
Stamp set: although mine is no longer available - any suitable sentiments would do
Inks: Midnight Muse
Cardstock and paper: Whisper White,Midnight Muse
Punches: Oval Punch
Embossing folders/embossolits :Oval frame, Beautiful wings embossolits
essentials: Stampin up Dimensionals, rhinestones
