Thanks butterflies !
Hello today I would like to show you a card I made for my son to give to his nursery teachers on his last day.
His nursery is called Butterflies so I knew I had to add lots of them ! and then while walking thru town I was inspired by a shop window which had lots of teacups all lined up in a grid pattern.
I was further inspired by this weeks inspiration photo over at the shabby tearoom a gorgeous rosy explosion ! I used the photo as colour inspiration for my already budding idea !
So first I gave my card base (made with Bazzill textured card) a quilted effect by embossing it using my martha stewart scoreboard - I am really glad with the effect - I'll def do this again.
I added a spot of liquid pearls to the "quilting" to highlight the effect.
My butterflies were punched out of scraps of My minds eye quite contrary papers (a freebie from a mag) with a martha stewart punch and secured onto white textured card with a spot of pva glue then added a flatbacked pearl to each. I then stamped the "Thanks so much" stamp (HOTP), with pink ink, in amoungst the beauties.
I mounted this panel onto pink card and then onto somemore paper from the same my minds eye paper pack.
Simple - took ages but I really enjoyed the process x
