Hello! Welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. I design and create handcrafted greeting cards. I like to call this passion of mine "visual poetry" ....imagery on paper. Please feel free to browse the photos of my cards and leave a comment.

Butterfly Blues

"Butterflies" was the theme of this week's challenge at Joan's Gardens. I took several photos of my card hoping to capture the detail and dimension. This appears to be the best photo of the lot but the card still looks so much more soft and delicate in real life. 

I made my open cut-out butterfly from blue vellum and the solid one in white dotted swiss vellum. I adhered them together, added three tiny pearls and popped them on with dimensionals. I also made my flowers in blue vellum and then added white to the petals with a Gellyroll pen while still in the die and added a pearl to the center. The leaves, which look black in the photo, are actually green.

Here are the products I used for this  project:

Card Stock  -  GKD white and green, digital patterned paper, vellum
Stamps  -  GKD Framed Greetings
Ink  -  Memento Tuxedo Black
Dies - Marianne Creatables Anja's Vintage Frame, Spellbinders Les Papillions Two, Memory Box Cottage Leaf, Delicate Fern
Other:  pearls, white Gellyroll pen, adhesive, dimensionals

Hope your day is filled with inspiration and creativity!
