Today's card came together pretty much by accident. This isn't at all what I set out to make. *LOL*
I am entering this into the Birthday Bash challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut. The challenge is to make a birthday project.
I went through looking at my usual birthday images of cupcakes and such, and nothing was inspiring me. I happened to find this pretty butterfly on Cake Basics and decided to use it.
I cut the top layer in black, and a back layer in white.
I took the top layer and carefully added some thick Red Line Tape all over it. Then I dumped some loose Martha Stewart Glitter over the exposed tape.
I attached the white layer behind it and then cut away the excess tape
This would have been easier if I had a full sticky sheet to cut out as the solid butterfly, but I didn't. You could also kiss cut a material like that so that you could remove each section separately and more easily get a variety of colors. I'd love to try that sometime, but today I used what I had on hand.
I took the butterfly to my Martha Stewart Score Board and made lines where the wings started so I could fold them up easily.
I went with a square card base. The corners are all rounded on a 1/2 inch setting.
I went around the edges with one of my Chomas Creations Gel Pens.
Along the bottom I used my EK Success Open Scallop punch on some pretty cardstock that is somewhat metallic looking.
I added some black satin ribbon.
The sentiment was spelled out using 2 different SP & Company stamp sets from their Mix & Match line.
Thanks so much for visiting me today :)
