Since my grandmother’s birthday is just after the start of Spring, I wanted to do a card with a bright colour scheme so we can leave Winter behind for the next several months.
I used a pink cardstock and ran it through my Cuttlebug with a free embossing folder I got from Papercraft Essentials magazine issue 122. I then used an old nail file to lightly distress the embossed pattern to reveal the white core of the cardstock. Then, I matted it onto a lovely teal cardstock and layered that onto a white card base. I then made a thick band from teal and vellum that I die cut with a scalloped border on both sides and wrapped around the middle of the top layer.
To Top it off, I stamped a butterfly onto clear heat resistant acetate and heat embossed in silver. On the backside of the butterfly, I filled in the wings with glue and various shades of glitter. I cut out the butterfly and glued to the left of the heat embossed greeting and bent the wings up a bit to add a bit of dimension.
