Good Monday morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I know mine went incredibly fast! But, since it is Monday, it is time for a new challenge over at My Craft Spot! This week we are breaking out the glitter and bling! Here is what I made to share this week:
This card ended up just so unbelievably girly! It makes me happy! I started off with some beautiful Crate Paper from the Pretty Party 6x6 paper pad. I used some for my background, then punched some butterflies out of the scraps using a Martha Stewart punch.
I inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink in Vintage Photo, covered them with Glossy Accents, then sprinkled with Martha Stewart coarse glitter.
I used the these Lacey Banner Metal Dies:
Also cutting out of the same paper pad. I stamped a sentiment from Butterfly Kisses:
I also inked the edges of the banner, added some glitter to the yellow layer, and the sentiment is stamped with PTI ink. I punched a hole in the top center of the banner to attach it with some jute twine.
I machine stitched around the outer edges of the paper, added a doily, then glued down just the center of the butterflies, and curled up the wings once they dried.
I used Vanilla Bean Crinkle Ribbon, and Natural Jute Twine for my bow, and finished off with a bit of self-adhesive bling here and there.
As always - thanks so much for visiting, and for the sweet comments that always brighten my day! I hope you will come over and join us this week at My Craft Spot! Look forward to seeing what you make!
