Poetry in Kindness

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.
