Butterflies and Daisies

Hi there All,  Jennifer back again with another card.   

I thought I would steer away from Christmas cards on this post and concentrate on what the Spring and Summer will hopefully bring next year,  something I think most of us like, butterflies.   This card I made in September 2012 for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Crafts and uses their Daisy Dots Embossable and of course uses their beautiful Sparkle Medium, which I love.  It really is so....easy to use and you end up with a very professional finish very quickly.   You do have to wait a little while for it to dry, but then you can get on with the rest of the card.   The beautiful effect is well worth waiting for.

Make a base card from light green card.   Take a piece of lilac card slightly smaller than the green card and emboss in an embossing machine using the Daisy Dots Embossable.   Gently rub Dusty Concord Distress Ink over the lilac card and fix this to the base card.

Cut out and emboss four flower dies (Marianne Design)  from white card and glue along the top of the base card.   Cut out and emboss the scroll (Tim Holtz) from white card and glue down the right edge of the base card.

Take a square of white card and colour it using the Silkies and a paintbrush.   When dry, lay the Daisy Dots Embossable onto it and spread the Sparkle Medium over it using the spatula.   When dry, matt onto a piece of white card, leaving a tiny border of white showing.   Glue this to the base card in a diamond style.

Using white card, cut out and emboss the large butterfly.   Cover the butterfly with Versamark and heat emboss using Imagination Craft's Magi-Boss Chunky embossing powder.   Repeat the embossing once more (two layers).   Cut out and emboss the Spellbinders border from white card and glue along the bottom of the base card.

Glue the butterfly to the bottom left of the base card and add some white gems to the body of the butterfly.   Cut out and emboss the butterfly circle (Spellbinders) using holographic card.   Keep the circle for another project and use the tiny butterflies  left over from when the circle was cut out.   Glue some onto the scroll and two more onto the base card.  Well we are finished.   Thank you for stopping by, hope you have enjoyed your visit to our blog.    

See you again soon.
