Sheer Perfection Butterfly

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you a stunning, colourful and bright card with the Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack and some Stampin’ Write Markers.

I have used the vellum sheet with the Butterflies, and die cut a banner using the Banner Framelits from it as well as a piece of Whisper White card at the same time. Turn the vellum over and colour with the Brights pack of Stampin’ Write Markers. I adhered the vellum to the white banner using glue dots.

Sheer Perfection Vellum

The base card is Melon Mambo with another layer of Melon Mambo on top. This layer I have sponged the edges with coordinating ink and a sponge dauber, before cutting the 4 corners out.

I then attached some twine by wrapping it around each edge to form a border. Add all the layers with dimensionals.

I added a band of Coastal Cabana card embossed with the Decorative Dots TIEF.

Sheer Perfection Vellum

The sentiment is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on Whisper White card stock and I cut it out with paper snips. This is added to the card with dimenionals.

How gorgeous is this butterfly vellum coloured from behind? I just love how bright this card is!

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!

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.
