Watercolor Wings, Cotton Paper, Same Design And Two Different Cards

Hello everyone! Today I wanted to share with you couple of cards I created a few weeks back. In August we had two birthdays in close family: my niece had her 15th birthday, and my little sister was celebrating her round 20 🙂

For both cards, I’ve used the same layout, but by simply changing focal point and embellishments I created two cards that looked completely different 🙂

The first card I’ve made for my niece and I was dying to use our new Cotton Paper. With Floral Frames framelits, Pansy Punch and Petite Petals Punch I created this amazing 3D flower.

I’ve sponged edges of petals with Whisper White Craft ink and close to center slightly in Wild Wasabi. The sentiment comes from Sprinkles Of Life; stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in white on a piece of Basic Black.

The base for a card is 4×4″. The first layer is 3×3″ and I created this patterned paper myself. I simply used Stampin’ Write Marker in Crushed Curry and hand-drawn horizontal lines – cool, isn’t it? The second layer is a circle cut out from a piece of Neutrals DSP Stack (Soft Suede) with Wild Wasabi watercolour “wash”. For more interest, I added a banner underneath my layers and few sequins.

The second card I’ve made for my sister’s birthday. As I mentioned it’s the same design. The only difference is that I kept 2nd layer clean and for the circle, I used So Saffron, Hello Honey and Delightful Dijon “wash”. Same colours I’ve used for this gorgeous butterfly from Watercolor Wings.

The edges of wings and the body of butterfly I heat embossed in gold. On top, I added small vellum butterfly. Tiny yellow pearls, as well as a piece of black/gold washi tape, comes from my stash. Can you see little gold “bauble” peeking from underneath white layer? It’s one of White Perfect Accents, heat embossed in gold.

So what do you think about my cards? My niece and sister loved them to bits, so I really hope you like them too.

Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day,
