And today’s sketch was designed by lovely Kathleen from Lilypopcrafts.
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.
