Hope you are all doing well. Boy it has been a while since I have posted. I want to thank all of you for hanging in there with me. It has been a rough start to 2015 but I am hoping and praying that things will get better soon! Today is my day to share over on the Pazzles site. So here is what I came up with:
Here is a look at my completed card. I started by using my Pazzles to create the butterfly cuts on the mat. The card base is 4.25 x 5.5. It is a kraft cardstock base. The patterned paper is from the Craft Smith Co Painted Posies Paper Stack. I then used my quatrefoil embossing folder and my cuttlebug to emboss the white mat after I cut the butterflies. I also created the label tag on my Pazzles. I used my April stamp set and my Whisper Ink Pad to stamp the sentiment. I used some Buttercream twine from the Twinery and wrapped it around the mat. I used some foam tape to give the label a little lift. I finished off by adding a couple of pearl embellishments.
After cutting the butterfly mat I used a piece of paper and then used a pencil to outline where the butterflies are.
I then used my various Shin Han markers to color in the areas of where the butterflies would be.
After I colored the spots in, I adhered it to the back of the mat.
Here is one last look at the final card. I also added some White Liquid Pearls to add some dots to the centers of the butterflies. If you belong to the Pazzles craft room the file I created is free for you. Be sure to head over there and download it.
