Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine did not go as planned, but turned out OK. I will be drawing the winners from last week's giveaways tonight and posting them tomorrow. I had hoped to have them posted last night but was unable to. Now, on to the card...
My sister-in-law is the manager of a jewelry store and asked if I would make some cards to use in their Mother's Day displays. This is one of them. She asked for bright colors, so I didn't use the traditional pastel colors that are usually seen on Mother's Day cards.
The card is A2 size. The patterned paper is a single sheet I bought at Michael's. I printed the sentiment from my computer using the Lavanderia font.
It's a little hard to see, but I inked the edges of the butterfly with black ink. As you can see, I blinged it up with some sparkles by Recollections. The details of the card are listed below.
Base - Black cardstock by Recollections, 4.25" x 5.5"
Butterfly mat - Patterned Recollections paper, 4" x 5.25"
Butterflies - Uptown Flair stack by The Paper Studio, cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 2.25" and 1"
Sentiment - Printed from computer using Lavanderia Font
Bling - Recollections
One last thing, I finally received my Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge in the mail. YIPPEE!! I forgot to order the scoring blade/housing with it, so that should be here tomorrow. I plan on doing several videos showing how to use the cartridge. If there's a specific cut you'd like to see me highlight or any questions I can answer about using the cartridge, leave me a comment and I'd be happy to oblige!
Be sure to check back tomorrow to see if you're the winner of any of the giveaways. I am in the process of checking into several more options for my new store, so watch for more specials and giveaways soon!
