I have a very simple card to share with you today. I mixed up a couple of things to pull this one off. I finally was able to update my machines and my E2 Anniversary Carts are finally working with the Gypsy, so I wanted to play with them. I saw this picture, and can't remember where, and the designer created this split box with a pattern and plain white. They used a chipboard flourish as a seperator. It looked really complicated and I thought I would play with the Gypsy and reconstruct it. I simply used a rounded rectangle shape from CTMH AP and two different flourishes from Cricut Alphabet. I turned the flourishes a couple of different ways and then welded them together. I put them over the center and then copied the cuts on the mat in the different papers.
I stamped and cut out a butterfly and stamped the "Thanks". Colored them with colored pencils. I then added some glitter to the butterfly and then dotted some glitter here and there to look like gems.
I used 3D adhesive on the flourish to give it some dimension. When done, I thought it was OK. It's a little plain for my taste, but everyone else who has seen it really likes it. Of course, I have left over cuts, so I hope to get back to them soon and see what else I can do with the square and flourish idea.
I would love to hear your comments. Thanks so much for visiting today!
