Hi all! I’m here with a birthday card using the Close to the Heart stamp set and matching dies. This is such a beautiful set, I can’t stop using it!
I created sort of a stencil by cutting some acetate using the two smaller butterfly dies.
I then chose several pink, red and orange inks to sponge the butterflies onto some white card stock. I lightly inked the sponge then worked from the edges in.
I only worked around the edges, swiping in just enough to see the outline, but also keeping the inner-most part of the butterfly ink-free.
I used one of Birch Press Design Notecards for my card base.
I used a separate matching note card and cut out two strips for my sentiment.
I inked one word at a time and stamped them onto each strip.
I used the Genevieve Butterfly Layer A die to add a little extra embellishment near the sentiment. And in case you’re wondering, the sentiments strips are covering ink boo-boo’s! 😉
Thank you for stopping by!
