Hello crafty friends! Happy Saturday! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend so far!
I wanted to pop in and share the card I made for my crafty friend Shannon from Stamp and Glitter. Today is actually her birthday. If you know her, go wish her a happy birthday!
Shannon had told me that her favorite color is purple and that she loves butterfly. So, I personalized the card and envelope especially for her. Shannon, I hope your birthday is extra special today! And I hope you are getting spoil! :) Happy birthday!!!
For today's card, I wanted to create a glass butterfly or at least try to. I love just how beautiful they are! I stamped the butterfly from Stampin' Up! Kindness Matters set in Mama Elephant Eggplant ink and clear heat embossed onto a vellum sheet. I added some clear Wink of Stella to the wings and carefully fussy cut. Isn't she beautiful with all that shine? I love it!
For the card base, I dry embossed a purple and white cardstocks with a Stampin' Up! Flourish Texturz Plate and then die-cut using Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle dies. Then, I stamped the fancy frame from Stampin' Up! Frames with a Flourish set in VersaFine Onyx black and black heat embossed. Next, I masked the outside edges and blended together Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Shabby Shutters and Scattered Straw distress inks. Then I stamped the birthday sentiment and carefully fussy cut the frame out. Everything was assembled and adhered to a white cardstock.
That is all for me today! I had so much fun creating this card and I was quite happy to put some of those retired Stampin' Up! sets to use. I actually had forgotten about them until I needed a butterfly image! Lol! Thanks so much for stopping in and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
