Sent with care...

Sunday, September 7, 2014

Hello and welcome... hope you are all enjoying the weekend? It's already Sunday evening here in Australia and I'm scratching my head wondering where the past few days have gone? Time just seems to be going so quickly and I seem to be getting behind in my posts again. This card was on the Hampton Art blog recently!

DESIGNED FOR | Hampton Art
PROJECT | Card (Sent With Care)


I wanted to create a very subtle card to suit the sentiment so decided to use a repetitive pattern of the butterfly starting from the boldest colour working down to the palest which would lead the eye down to the wording.

Each piece was stamped and heat embossed before I put it through my hand embossing machine to use the cutting die before adhering to the card using a foam pop dot.


Although I wanted to use black ink for the sentiment I felt that if left with 100% density it might be too overpowering so I stamped off some of the ink and used the second impression on my card.


Once everything was in place I felt that the design was missing something so after a few trials with sequins and epoxy dots I settled on adding a few mini pearls to the card.
