Hello, everyone! In yesterday's post I promised to share another card today which I made for a challenge at Joan's Touch. I just love the peach and teal colors together. They are so soft and remind of spring which, hopefully, will arrive here soon.
My base card is white, layered with peach and then teal. For the focal point layer I cut a white panel, scored it on all 4 sides and adhered it to my base card. Next, I cut an intricate circular shape in white card stock using Marianne Craftables Tiny's Hearts die. My sentiment is from GKD Dogwood & Butterfly stamp set and was stamped in this circle in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Then I matted that with a teal circle created with Spellbinders Standard Circles die. This finished circle was then adhered to my base and put aside while I worked on the actual focal point.
In creating my flower, I stamped HFC Sun Kissed Fleur stamp on white card stock and colored each flower with Copic markers. This stamp is one very large stamp and includes different size flower petals and leaves. Next, I cut the flowers with HFC Sun Fleur die, a large die which cuts all the flowers petals at once. After cutting I shaped the flower petals and layered them to create the completed flower. I added a peach pearl to the center.
The butterfly is layered: the bottom layer is a peach digital butterfly stamp which I cut out. The top intricate layer was created with Memory Box Vivienne Butterfly die in black card stock. The two layers were then attached to each other.
Finally, I put the card together. I cut two leafy swirls in green card stock using Marianne Creatables Anja's Vintage Swirls die and adhered them, one on either side of the circle. The flower was positioned in the upper part of the circle and popped on to the circle with dimensionals. The butterfly was positioned in the lower portion of the circle and also popped on with dimensionals.
This completed my card. I hope you like it and stop by often to see what I've shared on my blog. Thanks for visiting and have a creative day!
