Best Wishes

This is a card I made one day while playing around with some different techniques... I started with an A2 top folded card base made from black cardstock, rounding two corners with a corner punch.

Next I cut a piece of kraft card just smaller than my base, rounded the corners and embossed it, and then covered it with Tim Holtz Distress Stain in Brushed Pewter.

I cut a 3 1/4 x 4 3/4 piece of white cardstock, rounded the corners and did a crayon resist on it, then inked over it with TH Distress Inks in Broken China and Pumice Stone.

Next I die cut butterflies from the inked panel (dies from Antique Flowers and Butterflies, Hero Arts) and did the packing tape technique using the matching stamps.

I then layered that panel onto black cardstock and attached it to my embossed kraft card, wrapped a ribbon across all the layers, and attached the whole thing onto my base card.

The sentiment was a freebie from Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine, and I stamped it and embossed it with Zing! embossing powder and cut it out using Spellbinders Lacey Ovals.

I stamped and embossed a fan design (also a freebie) and cut it out using the next size up in Lacey Ovals, layered it onto my card front with foam dots, and attached the sentiment on top.

For finishing touches I added a bow made from matching ribbon, and gems in the corners.

Christina says ...

Such a pretty card and don't the rounded corners give it an unusual look, giving it your own personal touch

I love playing around with stuff in my craft room as it always fun to see what you end up with.

Sometimes it can be a really pleasant surprise and others maybe not quite what you expected ... but it is only card and paper and it is fun to start all over again.

Hi Faith
Love your card. You have used so many techniques so I bet it was time consuming but well worth it in the end.

Hi Faith. A lovely card with sooooo many different techniques. I love how you offset the ribbon too. I've been doing that on some of my cards lately, as well. Thank you so much for sharing. Well Done!
