It feels good to be back blogging for Butterfly Reflections Ink as a guest! Today I have a thank you card featuring Altenew's Wild Hibiscus stamp set and the thanks die from Hero Arts' thanks stamp and cut set.
Here's how I created my card:
- I die cut a scalloped rectangle from a piece of water color cardstock using WPlus9's sunshine layers die.
- I masked off the scalloped edges, using the stitches as a guide, and repeatedly stamped the 3 butterfly images from Altenew's Wild Hibiscus stamp set with Versamark ink. I sprinkled the stamped images with Wow white embossing powder, and heat set.
- I removed my masking tape, and watercolored the stamped panel using Tim Holtz distress inks. I used Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry, and for my purple, I used a combination of Seedless Preserves and Wilted Violet.
- For my sentiment, I diecut the thanks from Hero Arts' thanks stamp and cut set 3 times out of black cardstock. I glued the diecuts together giving it some dimension, then glued it onto my butterfly panel.
- I popped the whole panel on some fun foam, and glued it onto a top folding A2 sized black card base. (I don't use black card bases very often, but I think it makes the thanks die cut really pop! I will use a white gel pen to write on the inside.)
- To finish off my card, I added some enamel dots from My Mind's Eye's On Trend 2 enamel shapes, and covered the thanks die cut with glossy accents.
- I have been loving creating simple matching envelopes for my cards lately, so I stamped the larger butterfly from the Altenew set with some Hero Arts Ombre Lilac to Grape ink.
I used a lot of favorites on this card! I have loved enamel dots on my scrapbook pages for years and years now, and they are perfect for cards as well! The Hero Arts thanks stamp and cut set is a favorite of mine, as I make many thank you cards, and the sentiments are perfect! I also love that it comes with the thanks die! The WPlus9 scalloped rectangle die is another favorite of mine, and of course I love my ombre inks and distress inks!
That's it for me! I hope you like my card, and have a happy Sunday!
