This card will be winging it's way across the sea to Greece very soon. It's for a lovely lady who is 85 years young this year . . . I hope that she likes it.
The background paper, front insert and butterfly images are all from the Clipart Fairy website.
A little bit of editing (for the sentiment bit) in a graphics software package, a little bit of glitter, a smattering of pearls and you get a very pleasing result.
I loved making this one and IRL it's much more sparkly. Damn my lack of photography skills, lol!!!
The inside of the card is decorated to match the front.
A close up of the butterfly detail. The upper wings were printed onto shimmering vellum from Debbie Moore.
I used a glue pen to highlight some of the detail of each butterfly and then I applied Glamour Dust.
Some self adhesive clear gems completes the decoration and the two layers are attached with Pinflair
Lastly a photo of the matching box.
I wanted a glittered finish which would be a little more durable than the Glamour Dust and glue option so I used an embossing pen to run around the shapes and used a holographic embossing powder to finish.
A fine border peel off in silver completes the decorations.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
