Butterfly Dreams

Monday, February 24, 2014

Clean and simple this time.

The card base has been dry embossed.  Next I stamped the butterfly image in Versamark on some vellum and heat embossed with matching embossing powder.  And then, I pulled out my trusty little craft sewing machine and stitched around the entire piece of vellum to attach it to the card base.  A few little enamel dots and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  SU! Lucky Limeade and vellum
Ink:  Versamark
Stamps:  TH Papillon
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Cuttlebug Charles embossing folder, embossing buddy, Zing embossing powder in Leaf, MME Enamel Dots, sewing machine, heat gun

Challenges entered:
Fusion #4:
Splitcoast Stampers CAS261:  CAS card with a colored card base
