First of all, I dug out this butterfly iron-on motif that has been sitting in my stash pile for at least four years and stuck it with foam pads onto a piece of olive-coloured pearl cardstock, which was trimmed with my scallop scissors. This was then stuck onto a piece of darker green cardstock that was slightly distressed with gold ink. This was then mounted onto patterned paper (from a Sizzix pad I think!) which was trimmed with deckle scissors and inked ever-so-slightly with green ink. Last but not least, this was mounted onto more pearl cardstock and decorated with gold Stickles.
Next, I cut an oval shape from my new Costco papers, mounted that onto a blue card (which I stamped with silver flourishes from Gel-a-Tins) and framed with a selection of Prima daisies in muted blues and greys - and just a touch of yellow for colour. These were then decorated with Icicle, Silver and Dark Blue Stickles.
And last but not least, I used up the scraps of paper (Costco again!) from my last card making session. These were both rounded, mounted on each other, and then mounted on a piece of Cuttlebugged card (which had also been chalked). The final touches were two of my own crochet flowers (held together with a brad) and - of course - some Stickles!!! It was Copper this time....just in case you wondered :-)
After all that hard work, I made a couple of very simple 'male' cards, including this Father's Day card requested by a colleague - I hope her hubby likes it!!! In fact, if anyone knows who makes the beige letter stickers that I used here, please let me know, as I need to find some more and can't remember where or when I bought them!!!
That's all for this week folks - thanks for looking!!
