Hello & thx for visiting today :)
Today's card came together quickly with the new Butterfly Brilliance Bundle & Just Jade cardstock. I've been using Just Jade much more lately, maybe because I'm eager for spring :) I had to add the sentiment from Heal Your Heart, because that is just what fit. Although its a newly retired Sale-a-bration stamp set, the sentiments are perfect, and I will go back to this one throughout the year I think.
Here's the card details:
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Just Jade Card base (4 1/4 x 11 folded at 5 1/2)
The background is stamped with Just Jade, carefully inking three of the five butterflies of the single stamp, then angling it on the card front. I used my Stamparatus for this simply because I love using my Stamparatus, especially for the large stamps.
The single butterfly was cut out of the Butterfly Bijou paper using the Brilliant Wings dies. Then a piece of Just Jade was cut out with the detailed die that fits with this butterfly.
I stamped the 'sorry for your loss' with Just Jade on a 3/4 inch piece of Basic White card stock and cut it to fit the card front with the butterfly in place. I'm sorry I can't remember the length as I've already mailed the card - maybe 3 1/4, you'll know, just use the "Squint Technique" :) and choose what looks right to you :)
The butterfly from the paper is glued onto the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then the detailed Just Jade butterfly is raised slightly using Mini Glue Dots that I rolled to give a bit of lift. The sentiment is raised on Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. The 'bling' is Pearl Basic Jewels. And voila!
What is your favourite green? Please leave me a comment and let me know! Thx so much for visiting and have a super day!
