HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY..... again!


Hi and welcome, thanks for popping by

First things first, my apologies for not posting yesterday, the card above was for yesterday!  I'm afraid the 'old war wounds' were pretty bad etc etc
So let me get straight down to the card.
Using A4 Baby Pink Foundation Card I scored it in half to create an A5 portrait card.  I also cut several thin layers of the pink and white card. On a piece of white foundation card I stamp and heat embossed the sentiment Happy Mother's Day by Clarity using WOW Gold Satin Pearl Embossing Powder.  Next I cut the Cascading Butterflies Die using White Foundation Card, I didn't use the outer cutting die as I wanted the image of the butterflies only.  I then embossed this card with one of my folders from my stash.  I cut 2 of the same elements from the Kinetics - 3D Window Box & Accessories in white card.  I used 4 different shades of ProMarkers to colour the flowers  and window boxes, highlighted the tulips using a white pencil, added mounting foam to the back of the window boxes, from that set and adhered 3 small flat back pearls to each box and to the centres of the smaller flowers.
I chose 3 of the butterflies, sprayed them with adhesive glue and sprinkled Diamond Sprinkles Glitter Jewels over them.  I then removed the excess, applied Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear PVA Glue to the centre of each butterfly and added white flat back pearls.
Where the butterflies had been cut., on the white card, I applied some double sided adhesive sheet to cover the cut image on the back of the card, then working on the front of the card I used Golden Jewels Gilding Flakes to the butterfly shapes, and, with a piece of Rubit Scrubit I burnished the gilding flakes.
I used one of my tag dies from my stash to cut and emboss the sentiment then gently dusted a little distress ink, around the edges, using one of my smoothies that already had Victorian Velvet Distress Ink on it.  Mounting foam was applied to the back of the sentiment and adhered to the card.  I also adhered the smallest butterflies to the edge of the sentiment.
I applied Cosmic Glue to the spine of the two remaining butterflies and adhered to the matching gilded images.  The window boxes were adhered to the base of the card, a verse attached to the card inside and that was the card finished

Thank you for visiting, I do like to read all of your comments and it also lets me know you've called
