Hello to you all, and I hope that you are all safe and well.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Miriams Crafting Blog. Monthly Challenge. MOSTLY WHITE.
Crafting For All Seasons. Challenge #94. THINGS WITH WINGS.
Tuesday Throwdown. Challenge #228. EMBOSSING.
Crazy Challenge. Challenge #189. EMBOSSING.
As You Like It. FAVOURITE EMBOSSING FOLDER AND WHY. (I love this folder as it gives a beautiful look and lots of fabulous texture. I think this is an all round faVourite of mine, not just for Winter cards - GORGEOUS EFFECT).
I really do like the Challenge of making these WHITE CARDS, and this is another that I have enjoyed creating.
Using a SCALLOPED EDGE CARD I have first added a
HUNKYDORY SWIRLY EMBOSSED CARD, all edges have a SILVER CHAINLINK BORDER
to highlight and give definition too.
I then embossed a RECTANGLE PANEL with the CRACKLE EMBOSSING FOLDER and positioned to the right side of the card.
Then I used the Spellbinders TEAR DROP CIRCLE die set, using the largest circle, which I then embossed using the SMALL DAINTY FLOWERS folder., this was placed in the centre.
I then created my FLOWERS using WHITE CARD and also WHITE HOLOGRAPHIC CARD using the SMALL DAISY PUNCH and also the Spellbinders D-Lites - BLOOMS ONE.
For the centres of the flowers I have used CARD CANDI and also CRYSTAL GEMS. To make the FOLIAGE I used the Die-Namites WINDY WHEAT die, which I then embossed with the
SWISS DOTS embossing folder. Once they were all in position, I added THREE PINS one with SMALL BALL TOP and the other two with LEAF TOP.
I added CRYSTAL GEMS round the TEAR DROP CIRCLE for added texture.
I then punched TWO EMBOSSED BUTTERFLIES using the Woodware BUTTERFLY PUNCH, these were layered together with CRYSTALS for the body. I then used the
MINI BUTTERFLY PUNCH to create three layered butterflies using HOLOGRAPHIC CARD.
To complete the look, my sentiment says
"EVERY BUTTERFLY'S JOURNEY STARTED WITH A CATERPILLAR"
Thank you so much for coming to visit, you are so kind. I hope that you like my card.
Love Sandra xxx
