Embrace Silver & Blues

Hi there peeps and a happy Monday to you all! I had a nice weekend and did something that I haven’t done in a very long time. On Saturday I took a ride into the city and picked up my friend Kim. We went downtown so I could go and see The Ink Pad’s new location. They have been there for well over a year but because of everything that has been going on I haven’t really been in the city. The new shop is nice and packed with fun stuff! Unfortunately Anna wasn’t there but I did get to see Patrice. I of course picked up a few things! LOL! Yesterday my friend George helped me do some things to my car and then Heather made a delicious dinner. A nice weekend indeed!

My card for today uses the Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Hot Foil Plate again! I think I’m a little addicted to hot foiling!I used my Gemini Jr. and the Gemini Foilpress along with the Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Hot Foil Plate and some Silver Glimmer Foil to create the butterflies.

Next up I used the coordinating Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Stencil and Concord & 9th Midnight, Peacock, Oceanside and Aqua Sky Ink to add color.

I then cut them out with the coordinating Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Dies. For the background I cut a piece of Dark Blue Card Stock with the Pinkfresh Slim Diagonal Stitched Plaid Die. It’s trimmed to 8 1/4 by 3 1/4 and adhered to a card base of Neenah Solar White 110lb. For the leaves I used the Pinkfresh Curvy Leaves Die and cut them from Silver Foil Card Stock. They are added to the card base with Bearly Arts Glue. The butterflies are adhered with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Pinkfresh Butterflies Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts Silver Embossing Powder onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb. It’s also adhered to the card with Foam Tape. For a little more sparkle I added a few Crystal Confetti. I don’t use much silver or blue and I actually really love them together! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! I appreciate your visit and wish you a pleasant day!
