When I made my previous 'Happy Birthday' card I stamped lots of butterflies in different colours. I'm using this purple one for the AAA Birthday Card Challenge as two of my favourite colours are purple and pink.
I die cut a frame from white card using the two largest stitched dies. I placed the card blank and frame into my MISTI so I could see where to position the sentiment. After removing the frame I stamped the sentiment a couple of times in purple ink to get a good depth of colour before embossing it with clear embossing powder. I attached the frame with foam tape in the centre of the card. I coloured the butterfly with purple and pink Promarkers and attached another butterfly shape to the rear to cover the marks where the pen had bled through the card. To finish I attached the butterfly along the body so I could shape the wings over the frame.
To make this card I used:
6" x 6" white matt card blank
Card Making Magic 'The Best of Card Making Magic' butterfly stamp and die
Clearly Besotted 'Fabulous Fuchsias' sentiment stamp
Lawn Fawn 'Outside In Stitched Square Stackables' dies
Versafine Imperial Purple ink
Cosmic Shimmer clear detail embossing powder
