Today's creation is a girly pastel card with lace and samaflora Tiny roses and butterflies... with an added dusting of sparkle!
I fancied doing something a bit different after what I have been doing for the past few cards made, So once I had finished off a lovely gothic card this morning, I decided to go completely to the other end of the spectrum and do something girly and pastel!
Dies Used - Cheery lynne little butterflies with shadow wing
memory box tiny dancing butterflies,
and a swirl and a leaf scrounged off Sam ;)
Also used were oyster blush papers, some off white lace, pink diamantes, a brass toned key, 2 pins, and my trusty vintage photo stain.
The card base was 6x6 (roughly) so my first piece of paper was cut a couple of mm smaller than that. I then distressed the edges and swiped them with vintage photo.
the second piece was 3mm or so smaller than that and I repeated the steps, though this time I didn't glue the paper flat, but furled opposing corners up.
I cut a strip from the left over paper I used first , distressed, inked, and adhered a strip of lace to top and bottom edges on the reverse side. this went across the middle of the card, with the pins glued in behind it (tied together with another little piece of matching lace) on top of this I glued a key charm and my little pastel roses
I then added the floral swirl towards the bottom, overlapping the mid strip, and once glued down , I added some of the memory box butterflies using a wax picker pen (also in oyster blush paper)
I stamped the sentiment in vintage photo and inked the edges, then matted that on yet another little distressed piece of paper . this i put 3d foam pads behind, and positioned overlapping the top of the mid piece . I finally glued on the cheery lynne butterflies, and added diamante accents across the card.
Very different or me, But I hope you like it... and that it proves I'm not a one trick pony ;)
