Good Evening Folks
I found some time this evening to finish the card that can be seen lying on my desk in this morning's WOYWW post so I thought I'd share it with you now before I trot off to bed.
I then covered the front with a couple of strips of patterned paper in a sunny combination of yellow and aqua blue, added a belly band made of another strip, this time white card - the top and bottom of which were punched using Martha Stewart Butterfly Border and X-Cut's Scalloped Edge punches - wrapped with a length of yellow saddle-stitch grosgrain ribbon.
I've used a free stamp from Craft Stamper, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, to create the topper. The die used to cut it is from Spellbinder's Labels Nine set and it was Adirondack Sunshine Yellow that was used to sponge around the edges. The die was traced round on turquoise cardstock to make the faux label for matting.
The three small butterflies were punched (using a Woodware punch) out of a scrap of aqua cardstock and decorated with tiny yellow gems (Anita's). The blue and yellow gems decorating the corners are slightly larger in size.
The inside and back are decorated in each corner with triangles of the patterned papers. I used punched squares cut in two diagonally to make the triangles - that simple!
No question that this is a snippet card so I'm off to Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 121. I hope Parsnip has got over being dressed up as an Easter bunny!
Wishing you all a wonderful day tomorrow.
