Spread Your Wings-Butterfly!

Hello!  Hope you are having a great week!  Here at my house the kids are home from school for a snow day!  First one of the year, if you can believe it.  I have a beautiful card for you today that I think will make you think of better weather and better days to come!

This is a 5 x 7" card.  I used some new Card Creator dies from Spellbinders Paper Arts.  These dies are called 5x7 Matting Basics A and 5x7 Matting Basics B.  Its kinda hard to see it but I stamped the Words of Inspiration Background all over the cream layer using Desert Sand Memento Ink plus I sponged around the edges.  Then I layered some peach cardstock and another layer of cream that I stamped the Small Trailing Butterflies stamp using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink.

Here is a close-up.....

As you can see, I stamped the butterflies onto a scrap of peach cardstock using Desert Sand Memento Ink and then fussy cut them out.  Then I stamped the same butterflies onto some Vellum cardstock using Timber Brown Staz-on and fussy cut those out!  The vellum I used is a text-weight so its a little thicker and that is how I got the wings to look like they are flying!

Here you can see my layers closeup! 

Another close-up!

See the sentiment strip?  I stamped the Words of Inspiration using the Desert Sand Memento ink and then stamped Spread Your Wings sentiment using Rich Cocoa Memento Ink over the background.  I sponged the edges and added the twine and pearls.

I think this card turned out great plus I had alot of fun making it!  Now I just have to find someone to send it too!!  LOL  Hope you have a great day!
