I hope you are having a fantastic weekend. This creation was made for a friend who loves purple. She has been very kind to me and I wanted to surprise her with a gift and a card.
I started with a solar white linen card then layered a piece of purple damask paper from Baer Design. Using the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles #4 die I cut and embossed a piece of purple paper for the next layer. I then stamped the rose images from Elements of Style in VersaMark Dazzle just to give the paper a little sparkle. For the next layer, I used the Romantic Rectangles #3 die (also stamped the rose image in VersaMark Dazzle) and layered a piece of plum paper behind it, which was distressed. I cut a piece of coordinating purple damask paper using the Spellbinders Labels Twenty die. The sentiment by JustRite was stamped in Adirondack Purple Twilight and embossed with clear embossing powder onto a Small Standard Circles. The edges were sponged with Pale Plum ink.
A tiny butterfly was cut using the SU Beautiful Wings Embosslits die and then I covered it with Angel Wings Shimmerz Paint. The final step was to add the the roses and tie a pretty bow from seam binding.
The inside sentiment was stamped in Adirondack Purple Twilight and embossed with clear embossing powder. In the lower right hand corner, I stamped some roses in Pale Plum and accented them with Star Dust Stickles.
Since I had planned to put this card inside a clear box I wasn't concerned about having too much dimension.
Are you working on anything crafty today? It has been raining the past two days so I don't feel guilty about playing with my paper.
