I would like to share a medley of cards I have made recently…
Butterfly in black & grey
The butterfly is collage stamped using 4 different stamps through a butterfly shaped aperture cut using spellbinders. Then having cut a spellbinders lattice, certain sections were snipped so the butterfly would feed through like photo corners and to finish some simple matting and layering with added definition on the white layers.
The basis for this card is simple spellbinder elements in lilac. The topper which the butterfly sits on was firstly painted with assorted acrylic paint, embossed with a spellbinder embossing plate and gold rub-on to highlight the detail. The spellbinder accent was cut 16 times and strung together with ribbon and layered onto background paper.
The floral topper was created by stamping onto an acrylic background and further colouring added with watercolours. The background was created similarly to the Lilac Butterfly in that the corner was cut repeatedly and positioned to create a repeating pattern onto background paper.
Blue & Grey Peeping Thank You
This card was created by using the faux embossed effect in that an element is layered onto a backing of the same colour; the Sizzix flourish and the Spellbinders lattice. With the addition of a Sizzix body and letters I think this makes a suitable contender for many male related events. I actually used this for Teacher Thank You cards hence the cheeky chappie peeping!
