Just for You, Friend

Hi there

As promised, I'm back to share another card with you today.  This one was made for a fab friend of mine who loves pink, glitter and butterflies, so I included all of these on her card!

I started by stamping the flourish on the card base.  Next I stamped the butterfly using 3 inks, I use the little cube ink pads so it's not to difficult to pinpoint where you want the ink.  This was then die cut using the corresponding butterfly die.  I placed the butterfly on the card base, not yet fixing it permanently, so I could curve the 'just for you' stamp to follow the curve of the wing and stamp onto the card base.  Next I added some wet glue to the flower centres on the card base and added some fine glitter, and then did the same with the butterfly wings.  Once dry I popped the butterfly up on 3D foam and finished off by adding the 'friend' word die.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Inkadinkado - Modern Flower Flourish; Clearly Besotted - Flight of Fancy and Sweet Little Sentiments
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted - Flight of Fancy and Friend Word Die
  • Ink: Versa Color - Sky Gray and Petal Pink; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Glitter: Stampin' Up - Stampin' Glitter Dazzling Diamonds
  • Cardstock from stash

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

STAMPlorations - July Challenge - Stamps and Glitter
Charisma Cardz - Challenge #15 - Anything Goes
Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes Birthday
Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 245- Butterflies

Ok, that's all I have for now.  I have this week off work so I'm going to spend today clearing the housework so the rest of the week is mine!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, whatever you're up to - hopefully something more fun than housework!
