IM59 – Butterfly Gala

Happy Monday everyone! I just love seeing February pass quickly…that means winter is quickly coming to an end!  This week we have a great piece of fused glass for our inspiration…

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 5 1/4, run through the Subtle Embossing folder, add to card front
  • Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue – cut out the stem/leaf image, layer, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp greeting using Night of Navy, cut out using Layering Oval, take piece of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green ribbon, wrap behind oval, add to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp small butterfly using Night of Navy and stamped off Pacific Point and Granny Apple Green, punch out using Butterfly Duo punch, add body, stamp antennae in Night of Navy, cut out add behind butterfly, add butterflies to card front
  • Add a couple Granny Apple Green Glitter Enamel Dots to finish off
