An extra post today but I am in for a lovely weekend so don't know when I'll get around to posting again. Going to Port sunlight tomorrow to the Happy Stampers Northwest Show and I have a stall at a fair on Sunday in Southport.
I made this for one of my very oldest friends who also makes cards. I made it a while ago but she had her birthday on Wednesday so I reckon it is safe to post now.
Numbers I bought from a garden centre of all places
20 x 20 white pearl card
box out of same card to fit.
19.5 x 19.5 white peal card
18 x 18 topper also in white pearl card.
little leaf stamp that I found in my stash that goes with the leaves on the main stamp,
Clarity montage butterfly stamp
Clarity butterfly stamp to match
another butterfly stamp - think this came with craft stamper magazine - a long time ago.
Weathered wood distress ink
Gold and clear embossing powder
cosmic shimmer white pva glue
the montage three times in versamark and gold embossed I then did another one on vellum.
I cut these up and decoupaged. I made two more butterflies with the vellum, embossed these too and cut them out. I used the Serif programme to make the round sentiment and printed onto pearl paper and " caught" with embossing powder as it came out of the printer. I then distressed too
I mounted this on to a circle of card and added the numbers.
I cut a strip of pearl card to go over the top of the box, and then stamped around the edge embossed and distressed as I had already done on the card. I stamped three butterflies, embossed in gold and just added a little colour with the distress ink and a brush.
I printed out a nice verse on the insert and then stamped the butterfly montage on the spare sheet and randomly place some butterflies .
I hope you like it - I know my friend did
