She asked that our card should include something with wings. Let your imagination run wild, it could be a bird, an angel an insect , you can use stamps, die cuts, digital images in fact anything as long as it has wings.
I had to make a birthday card for a friend, so I chose to include butterflies.
The base card was ivory textured card on which I stamped some butterflies using a stamp from my stash and scattered straw distress ink.
The base image came from a Debbi Moore Shabby Chic CD that was given away in a magazine - Crafts Beautiful. I cut around the ivy, leaving a shallow border. I distressed the edge with the scattered straw distress ink to take the stark whiteness away.
The bluey coloured butterflies were already printed, so I just decorated them with some wink of stella clear pen, and stamped the other butterfly image onto the base using flitterglu. I then layered up with some gilding flakes. Onto this base image, I layered another of the butterfly images, stamped onto plain ivory card in the same way. I distressed the background with the scattered straw ink pad and applied it on top of the base image using pinflair glue.
The sentiment strips were produced on my computer, and were cut down to size and distressed before putting in place using pinflair glue gel. The final touch was two small diamante stones in the top right and bottom left corners.
