How is your weekend going? Good here. My husband is finally starting to feel better. He needs to get his strength back now. (He is recovering from pneumonia.) Doctor said his chest is clear. So, that is very good. He has been sick for over a month now. I think I will have to make another pot of chicken soup.
Well, on to crafty card things!!
I am continuing my Bug theme today with three butterfly cards with a stamped floral background. I used an older Stampin' Up set called Flora and Fauna. (The same set as the ladybug cards) The background is also stamped with a Polka Dot Background stamp. I made three cards, each in a different color.
- Stamp the Polka Dot background stamp with a light pastel colored ink.
- Stamp the flower repeatedly with Stazon Black ink
- Color with markers
- Stamp the butterfly with Stazon and color with marker
- Add a solid colored rectangle to center of card
- Layer Butterfly with some punched pieces
- Add a pretty ribbon
On the inside, stamp the Polka Dot background and one flower. I will add a sentiment when I use the card. Perfect for any occasion--birthday, thinking of you, get well, just because, etc.......
