Hey there! Today I pulled out another of my favorite sets, Positive Thoughts. I wanted to create another card to feature the Butterfly Gems that are my ordering gift this month when you spend $50. I also used Ornate Garden Specialty Designer paper and the print I chose coordinated beautifully with Pear Pizzazz, making the Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gem really "pops"!
I heat-embossed the blooms with white powder on Bumblebee card stock, then cut with a Nature's Thoughts die. After stamping the greeting with Terracotta Tile ink I punched with the Tailored Tag. I added a bow tied with the Old Olive ribbon in the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.
After stamping the butterfly with Terracotta Tile and cutting with a Nature's Thoughts die, I added Clear Wink of Stella. Stella will smear classic ink of you keep brushing a bit, so it worked just the way I wanted to pull some of the ink into the white areas. I bent the butterfly slightly in the middle before adding it with a glue dot.
I added one of the tiniest Terracotta Tile Butterfly Gems for another pop of color. The Pear Pizzazz rectangle was also cut with a Nature's Thoughts die, reminding me that I need to use these dies more often!
This Positive Thoughts sentiment is perfect for so many cards and occasions!
