I have something very different today. This is a card I made just playing around with something new. Audrey, over at Cute and Some sent me this beautiful paper a while back. I had been waiting for the right idea to try it. I sure hope she likes the results.
For the base, I used craft card stock. I used this beautiful Butterfly Paper on both sides. I used a corner/border stamp set from Anna Griffin on craft paper. I stamped it with white ink... which wasn't enough, so I embossed it with detail white embossing powder. I love these lace border stamps. The Thanks is stamped in black on a white shape cut from Fabulous Finds. The tab that it's on is also from this cartridge, but it's a card shape, so I used the Gypsy to contour out the extra cuts. I also added a white scalloped circle behind to finish it off. I had an extra scrap piece of the butterfly paper, so I used a MS punch and punched out some more of the butterflies. I added a bow made with Cranberry Crinkle Ribbon from My Craft Spot and then folded out the wings on the punched butterflies and glued them in place.
This is how the card opens on the front. I used a rounded corner punch on the left bottom and right top edges. I am really getting into this look. Hee! Hee!
I kept the inside pretty simple. I added another lace border to the inside and some cranberry crinkle ribbon.
Overall, I was very pleased with the way that the card turned out. We would love for you to comment and let us know how you like it. We are sure glad you stopped by for a visit today!
