Celebrate endings...

Hello my friends! Hope you are having a great day. For today I have a card using the "New Beginnings" set and butterfly dies by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I really love the butterflies in this set.  Also I used the sketch for this week's challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.

  • Make card base from Kraft Cardstock. A2 Size.
  • Cut a panel from Ocean Mist Cardstock and mat it with a smaller piece panel from Ivory Cardstock (3.5" x 4.75") Add strips of Patterned Paper (I used little scraps!) and add stitches.
  • Die-cut butterflies from Vellum (x2) and 1 from White CS. Stamp image onto Vellum ones in Tumbled Glass Distress Ink (Set aside and give them some time to dry)
  • Die-cut and emboss an Oval piece from Ivory CS and a Tag from Ocean Mist CS. Mat them together and adhere it to card panel.
  • Stamp sentiment in Black Ink.
  • Add Rhinestones.
  • Add card panel to card base.
