Butterfly script

Greetings to you all, no posts last week as it's difficult to blog when you have no permanent base! As of next week though, the site re-opens and I will be back in my caravan :).   I will be starting up workshops and craft club the first week of April, I am excited about sharing the new designs.

Today's post is a card I made, I made my own backing paper for it- which was so much fun that I am looking to do it more often!!


Stamps used for this are all by visible image: small butterfly, Bronte border and ink splats.
 I made the backing paper using all of the stamps, then trimmed it down to size to fit on the card blank before matting and layering with green card and silver mirror card.  I then stamped the butterfly on its own and matted and layered that-using the same card but swapping their order in the layering.  The card is finished with the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment surrounded by Bronte border.

Items used:
8x8 blank card
Christmas green shimmer card
Silver mirror card
Gold embossing powder
Memento tuxedo black ink

I hope you like this card, thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear what you think :)

I will be back on Sunday, in the meantime, enjoy and happy crafting! xx
