Hi, thanks for stopping by...
Can you believe the difference?  Same photo taken on same camera!

If you read my post, I think it was two days ago, I mentioned about using left over card stock by making flowers, frames, borders etc rather than just storing it in a container/drawer.  So doing a quick tidy in one are of my studio I came across the above card base and decided to make something with it!
What I find strange is that when photographed the background looks a pale and delicate pink, it is actually white!  The card looks a muted beige when in fact it is the delicate pale pink showing behind the card as well as the top left of the card!  OK... enough about the colours LOL.
  • This is a 5.5" square card with thin mats of copper, white and pink foundation card by Creative Expressions.  I covered another piece of white card with double sided adhesive sheet , removed the backing and covered it with gorgeous Gilding Flakes/Mulled Wine by Creative Expressions, and I apologise as, again, the true colours are not showing up well at all!
  • I die cut this piece using only the inner die of the Finishing Touches - Cascading Butterflies Die Set by Sue Wilson/Creative Expressions then, using both dies, die cut it again on white card, to give me the white 'frame' to adhere around the butterflies
  • I used a stamp that was a free gift from a card crafting magazine for the sentiment.  I stamped and embossed it onto white card and used WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Powder
  • I backed this onto a thin mat of the copper card and added a small heart to the bottom left of the sentiment
  • I used the smallest butterfly from the die cuts, sprayed it with adhesive and covered it with Glitter Jewels Diamond Snow by Creative Expressions. I added two flat back pearls by Creative Expressions to its spine and adhered this to the top left of my card
  • To complete I added more of the same flat back pearls
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I read all your comments and appreciate you leaving me a message and hope my designs have given a little inspiration
