While this card has lots going on I knew I wanted this card to be extra special and really reflect the person I made it for...My girlfriend Sherry Wright just celebrated her birthday and I wanted her card to be as extra special as she is. So I first identified two things about Sherry...one, she is a class act....so I chose these beautiful papers by K&Company (Blue Awning Collection)...to me they are classy yet comfortable too! The other thing about Sherry is that she is a BEAUTIFUL PERSON. She puts her heart into her designs and femininity just oozes from her every project...so I thought why not go all out and do a super classy, feminine, soft, scrappy card for her bday... :)
Combining both the Small Letters Set, the 50pt and 25pt size letters from the Brayton Font Collection with the Harmony Classic Stamper Handle it was the "icing on the cake" so to speak. It allowed me to really personalize this card just for her. I was able to say what I wanted to say in a style that I hope Sherry really appreciates! :)
I really wanted my attention to details for this project to shine so I included the beautiful die cut butterfly from Spellbinders Butterflies 2 die set ..I inked the die first using Colorbox Pigment ink, then die cut and embossed the die. I then shook Opalescent Embossing Powder over top of the ink and heat set to emboss and add that shine... then I folded the wings and bent them over a stylus handle to give the butterfly dimension...
Lastly I mounted it to the card with three layers of simple bridal tulle under it to soften it and sort of ground the butterfly. And lastly I embossed the inside insert using the die so I could finish the inside of the card and make the project complete. I hope Sherry likes it as well as the rest of you reading the JustRite Blog today!
