Sheer Perfection

Hello Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is a colour challenge JAI#254.

I have to admit when I saw these earthy tones, it wasn’t something that really appealed to me. I prefer the brighter colours, but this is what challenges are all about, challenging ourselves to try new things!

I was in need of a thank you card for one of the prep mums who called yesterday to say that my youngest had left her lunchbox at school. We were already on our way to Kids Club and I wasn’t able to go back to get it, so this lovely mum wanted to drop it to our home. I was so thankful to her for even suggesting to do that for us, so I felt the need to make her this card!

I have just received this gorgeous Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack which is one of the four new Sale-a-bration freebies released this month. For every $90 you spend on Stampin’ Up! products you can choose from a range of bonus product and this stack is one of them!

The butterfly is die cut in Baked Brown Sugar and Tangelo Twist card together in the one layer.

The vellum is coloured from behind with the Stampin’ Write Markers in all four of the colours and adhered to the card with the coloured side down. I used the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker to to the stitching around the edge.

Be sure tho decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope helps tie it all together!

  4. Kate, I love the ‘earthy’ coloured butterfly, and your use of the gorgeous ruffled ribbon. This is a lovely card, that I’m sure will be much appreciated. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week.
