This is such a great sketch, with lots of layers, which I truly love. But I challenged myself to create CAS (clean and simple) card. And I think I did well.

The base of my card is top folded A6 Mint Macaron, with layers of Whisper White and Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP.

I decided to use beautiful (and retiring) stamp set Floral Wings. I stamped the butterfly in Mint Macaron, roses in Watermelon Wonder and leaves in Cucumber Crush. Next, I die cut the butterfly using Bold Butterflies Framelits and another one on vellum using a middle of Butterflies Thinlits and layered them together. I cut 1/4 of a Tea Lace Paper Doily and attached it underneath my butterfly and adhere it to the card base with dimensionals.

The sentiment comes from Number Of Years. I stamped it in Basic Black Archival Ink on a strip of Whisper White and punched both ends into banners using Banner Punch (also retiring).  I took Gold Metallic thread, created some messy loops and add it underneath the banner. Few gold sequins finished off the card.

  1. Love how you used vellum to soften the colors of the butterfly. I like this set but thought the butterfly was a bit loud. The vellum is perfect.

  2. Beautiful Ania! Really, really pretty. I love to see what other people do with a sketch, it’s so interesting and always inspiring.
