Happy 18th Birthday!!

Hello my friends!! Hope you all had a great weekend and Memorial Day celebration to all of here in the US. I spent the last 4 days sick and ended up having a last minute doctor's appointment, but now I am feeling better and it's sunny outside! which makes my day much much better.

Last week I have a special birthday card to make, the request was to include butterflies and green/blue combo. I saw the Moxie Fab World picture and I used it as an inspiration for my card and this is the result!!


This card is a little bit bigger from a regular A2 size, this is 5"x7".

Instructions:
  • Make card base from White cardstock.
  • Die-cut and emboss a piece of Patterned Paper with Floral Label Eight Nestabilities.(largest)
  • Die-cut, emboss and distress and piece of Patterned Paper with Label 8 Nestabilities (largest)
  • Stamp swirl butterflies image in Patina Mix's Media Inx, add clear embossing powder and set to heat.
  • Die-cut and stamp butterfly on Patterned paper in memento Bahama Blue, add it to image
  • Stamp sentiment in Jet Black Ink. TIP: Since I didn't have the "th" for the number and masked parts of the birthday word with Washi Tape and added ink only to the "th" part, and stamped it to my panel :)
  • Add glittery number. TIP: These numbers were white, but I wanted them to be blue, so I took my light blue Copic Markers and colored it!!
  • Add rhinestones to card.
  • Add ribbon. Create a small bow with bow-easy and add it to card.


Card Recipe:
  • Cardstock: White Solar Neenah (CutCardstock)
  • Patterned paper: Butterfly Garden (Pink Paislee)
  • Stamps: Butterfly Flourish, sentiment from Special Blend (Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps)
  • Ink: Patina Mix Media Inx (Donna Salazar), Jet Black Ink (Ranger)
  • Accessories: Floral label Eight, Labels Eight (Spellbinders), Thickles (American Crafts), Rhinestones, Seam Binding Ribbon, Dimensionals (Stampin' Up)
Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!!

  2. Stunning card, Giovana. Those butterflies are all so beautiful...I'm such a big fan of die cuts or fussy cutting images!
