Hello and welcome...
I have a sweet card for you today

  • I used a pale pink card as my base card, scored it to make an A5 portrait card
  • I added a mat of white, pink then white card again to the base card
  • I also die cut the butterflies on the final white card then embossed the card with an old favourite embossing folder of mine by Spellbinders.... I love that design
  • once embossed I added double sided adhesive to the back of the butterfly apertures, removed the backing and sprinkled Gold Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes to the area and burnished them in with a rubit-scrubit
  • Mounting foam was then added to back of the card and adhered to the base card
  • I used only 3 butterflies on the card and glued them with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue, I always use this glue, it really is fantastic
  • I added 2 flat back pearls to the bottom left corner
  • the pearl embellishment in the top right is by Hobby House
  • Finally I stamped the sentiment onto white card, die cut it with one of the pierced flags and dusted the edges with a smoothie that already had a little pink ink on it
  • Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes/Creative Expressions (C E)
