I had this beautiful SEI piece of paper with these bright butterflies that were perfect for fussy cutting. I have been wanting to make a set of really clean and simple cards using a white colour scheme, with a pop of colour so these butterflies were exactly the kind of thing I wanted. You can curl the wings of the butterflies to add dimension to the card. You could easily change up this card set by using a different bright element, like kites or cupcakes or anything really. I used a bunch of different embossing folders to give the white card stock some texture and create some visual interest so the cards didn’t look too boring. I also used the sentiments from the Hero Arts Set – Essential messages as it has now great messages and the typeset is really simple but striking so tied in with the look I was trying to create. It is important to stamp before you emboss the card, if you want to get a really crisp image. I actually created a set of these cards (although I am only showing 2 here) for a class for Stef, which also incorporated embossing the envelopes to match, making a matching tag and tying them together with ribbon so give away as a gift. A great idea to get a head start on the Christmas gifts. Let me know if you make any as I would love to see your pics.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
