Just a quick post today since my day is going to be one of those crazy busy ones! I made this card for the recent Paper Crafts Magazine call for submissions...but I never submitted it. I really liked how it turned out, but it wasn't what I was expecting. I ended up submitting something entirely different - and that is what ended up being my first acceptance! So I'm okay with that!
I used some My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper, and the map paper is from October Afternoon's Sasparilla 8x8 paper pad.
The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. I punched each one out twice, inked the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink (can we say tedious?!?!?!) - then adhered the first one to the blue paper, the next one just in the center, and ran a couple lines of machine stitching through the center. After they were all stitched and dry, I curled up the edges so it is very dimensional.
You can see it here too:
Finished off with a machine zig zag around the edges, a sentiment from Scrappy Mom's stamps, and the little butterfly stamps which are from the same Scrappy Mom's set.
Thanks for stopping in! Hope your day is wonderful!!!
