Sending Clear Butterflies

Happy Thursday! I had the pleasure of spending some time at the Lake for a few days, hence my absence. It rained a lot and the puppies got sick but it was still nice to get away none the less. My parents were also away in Disney with my Brother, Erika and the kids. Taylor pet sat for me and enjoyed a little time having her own place. I can’t believe that it’s almost the end of August… where did the summer go?!

I really have been enjoying my little obsession with hot foiling! I watched a video by Carissa Wiley a while ago and she had done it on acetate. I definitely had to give that a try! I also decided to jump on the paper strips bandwagon! To make the strips I used the Pinkfresh Slim Stripes Dies. I cut out two colors of Blue 110lb and some Gold Foil. They are added to a Slimline Card base at an angle with Bearly Arts Glue. I used my Paper Trimmer to trim off the excess. My butterflies are foiled using the Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Hot Foil Plate and some Crafter’s Companion Gold Foil onto a piece of Heat Resistant Acetate. They are cut out with the coordinating Pinkfresh Small Butterflies Dies. My sentiment is from the Spellbinders Yana’s Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Collection and is also foiled in the same gold. I cut it out using the included matching die along with a few extras so that I could stack them for some dimension. I added the butterflies and sentiment to the card along with a few The Stamp Market Clear Droplets and called the card done!

I hope that you like today’s card. It’s clean and I think that clear foiled butterflies are really cool! Thank you very much for visiting with me today! Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!
