Can you believe its the end of August already and tomorrow is the first day of Spring! So for the new season I thought I’d share a ‘springtime’ card featuring these lovely 2 step butterflies from the Sweet Shapes stamp set. I just love how this card turned out and its very simple to make too when using the Stamp-a-majig!
I have used a whisper white base. First layer is Almost Amethyst and stamped the asterisk in Whisper White craft ink pad. The middle section has the butterflies stamped on Whisper White in Apricot Appeal, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Almost Amethyst then using the paper piercing tool from the Tool Kit I have pierced holes to give the affect of where the butterflies have flown. I then layered onto pretty in pink strip. I’ve then tied the white organdy ribbon around the layers before attaching to the base card.
Its a very simple but effective card – I tell my workshop guests that I only do ‘simple’ as sometimes those cards with lots of layers, embellishments and techniques sometimes are just too much. Simple cards also show that anyone can make them and they dont overwhelm people or make them think they cant do it – anyone can make a card and an elegant one at that!
If you would like me to show you how to make this card email or ring me today to book in your workshop.
