Ladies Card Ministry- Card #2- Butterfly Birthday
Hi Again Stampers!
Here is the second card of three that we created at our recent Ladies Ministry Card Making class- if interested, more details on the event and the first card are located here :-)
To create The Butterfly Masking Technique card:
Stamp the outline flower from Stippled Blossoms onto a piece of sticky note paper and cut around the outside petals (remember to leave some of the sticky strip).
Ink the outline floral stamp using Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink and stamp onto the corner of a piece of Whisper White cardstock, re-ink the stamp and stamp again into the opposite corner. Cover the stamped images with the mask and re-stamp the other flowers without re-inking the stamps to fill in the white spaces.
Use a Sponge Dauber with Melon Mambo Classic Ink to softly color the flowers and sponge Elegant Eggplant over the edges. Mount onto a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock,
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Lacy Brocade (retired) Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Adhere to a piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock and add to the Whisper White card base.
Stamp the butterflies using Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch.
Stamp the sentiment using Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and cut out using the Large Oval Punch. We actually used the Thank You for Your Kindness stamp in the class since the Dress card used the Happy Big Day sentiment :-)
If you create as shown, mount onto two ovals punched from the same punch and overlap to allow the edges to show. If you use the Thank You for Your Kindness stamp, the Decorative Label Punch will create the
Lightly sponge the edges with Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink and adhere to the bottom right hand side of the focal panel .
Mount the focal panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and adhere the butterflies using Mini Glue Dots. Add the Pearls to finish off the card.
