Jugs Celebrate Challenge

I was having a little peek today over at our Monthly Customer Gallery Contest. There are some beautiful cards there! Here’s one that caught my eye by Ina, click here for details on her card.

Today we begin with a dreamy card by Shan featuring the butterfly from the Australian Nature I stamp set! Her details are just beautiful! Here’s Shan with her card!

Hi crafty friends. Its Shan here today to share with you a card I made using the large butterfly stamp from the Australian nature I set.

To create this card I started with a card base of 4.25″ x 5.5″. I layered on my pattern paper to a sheet of cardstock measured at 4 ⅜” x 5 ⅛”. I then layered on a white paper doily then stamped the birthday sentiment from the Big Wishes stamp set with black ink.

Above the sentiment (where the two pattern papers meet), I adhered a beautiful pink ribbon and layered a strand of flat back pearls to the center. At this point, I attached my layered cardstock to the card base.

After everything was finally attached to my card base, I embossed the butterfly stamp with white embossing powder onto a piece of card stock. I water colored the butterfly using memento ink, fussy cut out the butterfly around the embossed edges and attached it to the center of my doily gluing down only the center of its body. Once the glue dried, I went over the butterfly with a shimmery pen, lifted up the wings for dimension, and added tiny flat back pearls to its body.

That’s all for me for today. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
