Hello Crafty Friends - I am Guest Designing for White Rose Crafts LLC this month. It's an honor to be working with Kay and her team.
Today, I am here with a quick and easy card
using this month's kit called Blue Skies.
This kit is beautiful - it has shades of blue, rich gold, butterflies,
uplifting quotes and a fantastic stamp by Kaisercrafts.
So let's get started on the card.
I started by trimming the floral paper to 4" x 5-1/4". I pulled a piece of Navy cardstock from my stash and trimmed that to 4-1/1"" x 5-1/2". Next, I die cut a circle from the rich gold specialty cardstock from the kit. Then, I trimmed the sentiment I wanted to use from one of the pattern papers from the kit.
Once, I had my papers, sentiment and other supplies gathered I created the card.
I matted the floral pattern paper onto the navy cardstock. Then, I used low profile foam adhesive on the back of the gold circle and adhered it the lower right of the card front.
Next, I turned my attention to the chipboard butterfly. I used Distress Oxide Ink in Squeezed Lemonade directly onto the butterfly. I lightly dried it between layers of ink with my heat tool. Next, I sprayed the New Distress Oxide Spray in Mermaid Lagoon.
Once it was dry I flipped it over and added low profile foam adhesive onto the back of the butterfly. Then, place it onto the gold cardstock circle.
Next, I added the sentiment on top of the butterfly again with low profile foam adhesive. I was now ready to add some finishing touches.
I add a few sequins from the Sunny Skies Sparkle Blend that comes in the kit. I also added from the Sparkle Blend the little gold coils to the antenna. I adhered the card front to a top folding card base.
Now the card is complete!
