I thought I would start with the Mother's Day card I taught this year. Of course, what better color combo than pink and white and the softness of ribbon and pearls?
I tried to capture the 'cameo' look and embossed the image, which I think is from Flourish, using white embossing powder and then worked in the Distress Inks, Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet with Worn Lipstick around the edges.
The die I used for the frame is a Joy Crafts Oval die 6002/0258.The center cuts out, but I replaced it and there is another oval with a scalloped edge which I used to cut out the image and placed it back on top of the center oval.
The embossing folder has butterflies down the left side and down along the base. It is the Sizzix Butterfly Migration folder and one of my favorites. Of course a bigger butterfly had to be added as well!
I used seam binding, which I colored with the distress inks and tied a double bow using my Bow Easy. The sentiment is on a tag from PTI. The tag has a little heart cut out and I found a dainty pearl heart to place over the die cut.
I will be using this design again and would like to try it in a duck egg blue, which I think would look so pretty!
Thanks so much for popping in for a visit. I hope you have enjoyed my card.
Warm hugz and God Bless!
