N for Numbers

The current Butterfly Challenge is 'N for Numbers' and as I used some snippets I'm popping across to see Di in the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.   I'm also entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge.

Card blank: 7in x 7in white silk
Stamp: Hobby Art 'Happy Birthday'
Die: Memory Box 'Pippi Butterfly'
Embossing: Cuttlebug 'Number Collage'
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black and Vintage Sepia
Card: Dark brown
Snippets: Lili of the Valley 'Perfect Pair' green and pink papers, white card

I layered green paper to brown card and attached it to the card front.  I embossed a snippet of white card with the number collage, layered it onto brown card and attached it to the card front.  As I didn't have any very dark brown ink, I inked my stamp with Onyx Black and then Vintage Sepia before stamping the sentiment.   This was then trimmed to size, layered onto brown card and attached to the card with foam tape.  I glued two snippets of pink paper together to make it double-sided and then die-cut the Pippi Butterfly, before attaching it with Pinflair glue.

  3. Perfect use of the embossing folder. I wondered if anyone would think of using an EF with numbers on. Love the green and pink colours together. Thankyou for fluttering by #41. Hugs Mrs A.

  6. A smart, elegant card. I really like the numbers embossed in white. Because it's white, it doesn't look at all busy.

  7. This is a lovely card, I really like the design, and embossed numbers look great. Pretty butterfly as well.
