Watercolor Wings

Mixing It Up A Bit

I went for fancy and fabulous with this soft, but sparkly card that I am sharing with you today.

I mixed it up a bit by using a couple of different framelit dies, punches and ribbons, along with some extra sparkle.

For this card I used the Watercolor Wings stamp set and coordinating Bold Butterfly framelits. I also used the Floral Frames framelits. ( say that three times fast) So, I started by using pink pirouette and shimmery white cardstock. I embossed the background with the Elegant Dots emboss folder. The cool thing about this folder is that it coordinates with the Happy Patterns masks. Did you notice how I used the mask to lay over the embossed dots- then sponged it with mint macron ink? Pretty cool huh?


I used the Floral frames for the pink pirouette flower and a 2 1/2" circle punch for the middle of the flower, where I stamped the verse from the Watercolor Wings stamp set in early espresso ink. I die cut the "pink pirouette" butterfly and the "dazzling diamonds glimmer paper" butterfly from the Bold Butterfly framelits. Then I layered a mint macaron butterfly on top, which I punched out with the Bitty Butterfly punch.


You can see that I stamped dots in mint macron ink, onto the small butterfly and added crystal effects to make the dots pop. I also added a line of crystal effects over the words of the verse to add dimension and shine.

I used a 2 way glue pen to outline the circle and sprinkled dazzling diamonds glitter over top. It ties in with the "dazzling diamonds glimmer paper" butterfly quite nicely. Some Silver Metalic thread and a Metal Rimmed Pearl top it off.


Of course before I attached this centerpiece to the card, I added the gorgeous White Jute Ribbon and Blushing Bride Sequin Trim.



This card will definitely be sent to someone special!

I hope you will mix it up and try a soft feminine card with a bunch of sparkle, just like this one.

Until the next time...

Keep on Stampin' and Come back again soon!
