CQC150 Butterfly "Thanks"
I hope all of you are having a great weekend! I wanted to take some time this evening to create a CAS thank you card using the colors from the ColourQ CQC150 Challenge (I seem to always need a "thank you" card). If you have a chance check out the ColourQ site- all of the Design Team cards are so different and inspirational not to mention all of the other entries submitted for the challenge ! :-)
To create this card:
Use the Big Shot™ with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock and emboss another piece of Whisper White with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.
Cut the edge of the lace embossed borders with the Large Scallop Edgelits™ Die and mount the lace borders below the Lacy Brocade embossed piece.
Add the Bermuda Bay Grosgrain Ribbon (retired) and adhere the entire panel onto a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock. Ink the sentiment with the Bermuda Bay marker and stamp on the lower right hand corner and mount onto Bermuda Bay cardstock (retired).
Use Stampin’ Write markers in Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay(retired) to color in the Daydream Jumbo Wheel. “Huff” on the image to re-moisten the ink on the wheel and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.
Cut the Daydream image out using the Big Shot™ and the Apothecary Accents Framelits™ Die . Trim the lower end to create the tag, add the grosgrain ribbon and seam binding ribbon bow with the brad.
Use the Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch out three butterflies from embossed Poppy Parade DSP (lightly sand with the Sanding Block prior to punching the butterflies).
Add the tag to the card using SU! Dimensionals and the butterflies with Mini Glue Dots. Apply pearls to the ribbon and butterflies to finish off the card.
