Hello my long lost blogging family!!! Wow….what the heck happened over that last few days?? I think I’ll have to go on a mission and find the person that has stole my life…..I want it back right now!!! Okay, done ranting…..lol. Sooooo, I was able to get together with a wonderful co-worker on Sunday and we created such cute butterfly easel cards!! We decided to make them Mother’s Day themed. Wait till you see this little cutie…..
Look at that cute little flower hat pin! I had these little silver flower beads, so I took some of them and stained them with my alcohol ink in a green tone. I put a couple of coats on…..very subtle but very nice. We had a hard time finding just the right flower to match so I finally just took a couple of my flower punches and we just made them out of the same Designer Paper as the card was made from. I took my Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and sponged over the flower to give it some depth. We then ‘painted’ on some Close To My Heart Glitz glitter gel in Bronze to the edges of the petals. We inked the edges of the butterfly wings with the Vintage Photo as well and then painted on the Glitz bronze glitter gel to the edges. The green lace bow came from a haul I’d come across at our local second hand store where someone had brought in a whole pile of this old stretch lace seam binding….cha ching!!!
This is a picture of the outside and the inside of the card. I received the template for this card from a super talented friend, Lauren, from over in Aussie land. If you have some time, you really need to go on over and check out her blog….Laurenscraft.
Here’s a pic of the completed card opened…..
There she is…..all ready to give to some wonderful, incredible Mother!!!
Thanks for stepping into my world to take a peek…..I do really appreciate it!
