Polka Dots and Butterflies

Hello my friends! 

My card today is a standard A2 size.  The card base has been stamped and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

The polka dot layer has been created with translucent embossing paste that’s been tinted with a re-inker.  Once that was dry, it was stamped with the same background image found on the card base.  The sweet little butterflies have been die cut and kissed with a Wink of Stella marker…oh how I love that stuff!  They’ve each been topped with a clear sequin.

The sentiment was stamped on a piece of vellum that’s been distressed just a bit.  The center panel was popped up on foam adhesive before adding it to the card base and done!

Here’s what I used:
Paper:  SU! blushing bride and vellum; and Gina K. pure luxury white
Ink:  Versamark, Ranger Archival in Jet Black and Watering Can
Stamps:  Impression Obsession C-A-C in Distressed Corduroy and Mama Elephant Every Day Greetings
All the other stuff:  Simon Says Stamp medium dots stencil, translucent embossing paste, spatula, Spun Sugar Distress Ink re-inker, craft mat, Big Shot Pro, Simon Says Stamp Leanna butterfly, clear embossing powder, heat gun, clear Wink of Stella marker, Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins, adhesive, foam adhesive

  1. This is gorgeous! I love the background you created with the stencil and clear paste. I bought some but have yet to use it! Need to give it a try soon. Thanks for taking the Time Out to play with us!
