Good Monday Morning! I hope you had a great weekend. Sunday was Derek’s official birthday and he turned 50! Yikes….I’m cringing to say I’ll be there with him in only three short months. Double Yikes!!! I spent Saturday completing my kits for April’s Class. I really enjoy the relaxation making these up provides. Don’t get me wrong it is time consuming, but my ladies are so worth it. Love you guys! Then Sunday morning I spent making Derek’s birthday card. Yes, I had so much going on during the week and then Saturday. It turned out super cute but not too cutesie. I’ll post a pic of his card on Wednesday…….make sure you come back and check it out. [ hint, hint]
Today’s card is the second we created in my April monthly class. It features the Butterflies Thinlits, which I’m excited to say are once again available to order…Woohoo!!!, and the Hello Life stamp set for the sentiment. The base starts with Soft Sky, then followed by another layer of Soft Sky and topped with 2015 Sale-A-Bration Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper. I sponged the center of the top layer with Soft Sky to high-light both the embossing on the paper as well as the layered butterfly. The butterfly starts with the medium Butterflies Thinlit in Whisper White, then layered with the small Butterflies Thinlit in Vellum and topped with a third butterfly in Whisper White from the Elegant Butterfly punch. These were layered with a couple glue dots for ease during class, but I would use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to get solid adhesion between the layers as well as adhering to the card face. This beauty was finished with a string of three small rhinestones to add just a bit of sparkle. The sentiment was stamped with Soft Sky onto Whisper White then punched with the Word Window Punch. Make sure to place the sentiment close to one side. Then take the punched piece and slide it into the punch opening, where the punched piece pops out of, and slide in until only the words are visible, then punch. I will try and remember to take a couple pics and post to show this.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you have a great Monday.
