Tomorrow is a new day! This card is really pretty IRL, sadly dark days didn't help much with a good picture.

Here are the details:

  • Cut a piece of White Cardstock (3.75" x 5"), stamp flourish image in VersaMark ink and add Gold Embossing powder, heat set.
  • Add a piece of white and  gold cardstock in the middle part of the embossing piece. Die-cut 3 small butterflies, then stamp the coordinated butterfly from Majestic Monarch Set in Memento Luxe Wedding Dress, apply clear embossing powder and heat set. Add dimensional behind the die-cut butterflies and added to piece.
  • Add panel to a slightly bigger piece of Gold Cardstock.
  • Die-cut a stitch label, stamp small flourish in Golden Glitz Delicata Ink, set aside to dry , then stamp saying from God is bigger set in Coffee Archival ink.
