Sweet Cream & Green

card front
card inside
detail of butterfly panel

I thought I would try simplifying my blog entries so this is what I have come up with. As with everything the more one does the more one develops (or tinkers). Although I think the easel format will remain a favourite with me, I wanted to make something a bit different & so I thought the sketch at Simon Says Stamp would lend itself to a shortfall card. I flipped the sketch & used a mirror image to give the card stability. I also replaced the text with a corner element.

Image Stamped (Inkadinkado 99120 Patterned Birds & Bugs), heat embossed (Stampendous Emerald Green) & watercoloured using Sakura Stardust pen. Circle & scalloped circle punches (Woodware) used for cutting out & mounting. the innermost circle being inked (Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy).
Flowers Made using punches (Woodware except innermost petals, Xcut). All edges inked (Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy ) & the large flower stamped (Penny Black Crystalline) with the same ink. Gems from "stash".
Message Panel Punched (Woodware) & scallops inked (Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy).
Corner Punched (EK Success).
Paper Nancy Watt Collection Fancy Framed Quotes & Florals, edges inked (Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy).

Cardstock & everythings else from "stash".

Thanks for stoppin by my blog. I am norwgian, but I write in english, but then my mom and my aunt complains because they are not very good in english, so I have to write double, and it is so timeconsuming... But since they are both are big crafting gear sponsors I guess I just have to follow their command *LOL*

Your card is so elegant. Beautiful butterfly!
