Simple Wedding Wishes


 Hello Crafters! 

I have been blessed to work for some amazing companies in the last few years. 
This includes my wonderful friend and the owner of Wplus9.



I adore all her designs but this newest release has really stolen my heart. 
Why? 

Well there are gorgeous florals, butterflies and adorable critters. 
Yep, love them all. 

In case you haven't seen it I encourage you to head over to her blog and check out the inspiration she and the other members of the design team have created this week.

The entire release is now available for purchase.

Because of my blessings I often run out of time to create just for the sake of creating. 
I do find time every once in a while and I was lucky enough to do so today. 

A very good friend of mine was recently married and I had yet to make her a card. 
Eeeep. 

Fortunately for me the Large Butterfly Frame made it super quick and easy to create a card I know she'll love. 


I covered my cardstock super quickly with Distress inks. I didn't take any real time to blend because I knew I was going to die cut it. The areas being die cut were so intricate that I knew any imprefections in my blending wouldn't show. 

Once my butterflies were die cut they were gorgeous as is. I wanted to change it up a bit so I trimmed the butterflies out of their frame. Just to get a bit of depth I added a bit of copic marker to create bodies and then just a bit of shading on the inside of their wings. 

I also busted out my white gel pen to give their bodies and wings a bit more interest. 



I adhered them to a smaller piece of white cardstock and then popped up the panel on some white foam. I added the dimensional piece to a white card base.  It's hard to tell in the photo but I lifted up some of the wings for added dimension. 

The sentiments available in the  Modern Peonies set were perfect for a wedding card. I love sets like this that give you different options to build your own sentiments. 

A few clear sequins and a bit of Wink of Stella finished the card off. 

Did you notice I've fallen victim to the new photo staging trend? 
Haha. They were all so pretty! I couldn't help but be sucked it. 
What do you think? 

Thanks so much for dropping in!

  1. I thing your card is stunning and I like the way you staged the photos. I'm way too lazy to do that :-) That butterfly die is definitely on my wish list.

  2. Beautiful card! I'm not a big fan of the wood slice with flowers, etc photo prop. To me it's distracting and takes focus away from the card. Just my opinion.

  3. I think your card is gorgeous! I love butterflies and these are so pretty. I am on the fence about the photo staging. It's a lot of work, I think and sometimes you can't get a really good close up of the card to show the details when you have to include the props. Also, it's an additional expense when papercrafting can already get pretty pricey.
