Hey there! It's a beautiful day! Today we are going to Lando's 3rd birthday party! For a little less than a month, I have grandchildren ages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6! I hope we can get a picture of them all together soon before Darcy turns 3 on February 9th!
While I was in a "wisteria wonder mood" after creating the Lots of Lavender card for yesterday's post I used the same color palette to create this card with the Beautiful Day set!
Beautiful Day caught my eye immediately because it is featured on the cover of the Occasions catalog. I love the butterfly card!
I used the Fluttering Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create the butterfly background.
I rubbed the folder with the Wisteria Wonder ink pad before I embossed the card stock to highlight the butterflies.
I heat embossed the Beautiful Day butterfly on vellum with white powder then cut it out with my Paper Snips.
I flipped the butterfly over and colored the backside of the heat embossed image with Pool Party and Old Olive Stampin' Blends Markers. Stampin' Blends dry much faster on vellum than a Stampin' Write Marker would.
The greeting is from Beautiful Day, stamped with Elegant Eggplant ink on a strip of Whisper White. After cutting banner points on one end with Paper Snips, I pressed the edges of the banner into my Wisteria Wonder ink pad to add a little more color.
The dimensions of this card are 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8". It's an easy fun fold that really takes no more card stock than a standard A2 size card. I added a Fluttering-embossed Wisteria Wonder layer to the inside, then added a 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" white layer stamped with more Beautiful Day images.
