This card is for the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger. This is the trigger photo
Finally on to the actual making of the card! I wanted to use the large butterfly (Hero Arts, Butterflies) so I needed to make my card base a little bigger than usual, the tall card was perfect. I cut a piece of white 1/4 smaller and inked it up using, brushed corduroy, vintage photo, and some walnut stain on the very edges. To add some interest I spritzed and flicked water on it then stitched a border using white embroidery floss.
To make the butterflies I took another piece of white rubbed on spun sugar, worn lipstick, and barn door (very lightly since I was going for pink) then stamped the butterflies on top. I fussy cut them out then added some doodling with a white gel pen. Since I cut off their antennas I created new ones with some dark brown embroidery floss.
I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts, Essential Messages) in walnut stain. I also added some stardust stickles to the butterflies before adhering them to the card. In order to create more dimension I adhered the bodies of the butterflies flat but popped the wings up with foam.
Thanks for popping by to visit and for the opinion you (hopefully) leave behind!
