I have a card sitting on my desk for about a month… not finished. I had the stamping, embossing and sewing all done but it needed something. Well the new January “Inspirations” Brochure came out and well I got inspired. Wings is the new January Stamp of the Month and it is the butterfly that struck me.
Here is a different card that I made using Wings.
It shows the Butterfly stamp very well.
And while I love the butterfly on this card it just was not the “right butterfly” for the card sitting on my desk. But I did find the “right” butterfly.
These butterflies are made from a Martha Stewart punch that I found and they fit the style I was going for perfect. Yes, I know they are not the CTMH butterflies but I love them too.
The colors in this card are:
I used liquid glass and glitter to stiffen the butterflies and to make them sparkle. I embossed the “thank you” just so it did not get lost next to the butterflies.
When brushing liquid glass over a small punch or stamped image place small wax paper under work just to catch the mess and as your art dries it will not stick to the wax paper. I used a cheap kids paint brush to apply the liquid glass and glitter and then just trashed it when done.
