Perfect Butterfly Smile

Hello! Sorry I have MIA again. I have been spending a little time each day in the Craft Closet and taking my time making cards. Sometimes I get some of it done and then come back the next day to finish it off. I do have quite a few made so I will make sure that I post a little more often. I find that if I don’t keep myself to a schedule the Mojo flows a little better! On another note I seriously cannot believe that it’s September! That was one really quick summer. I’m not looking forward to the cooler weather and having to give up my flip-flops! LOL!

The card that I created for today uses the Pinkfresh Miss Your Smile Stamp Set and coordinating Stencils. I stamped it in Hero Arts Soft Granite Ink using my Misti. The inks that I used with the coordinating Pinkfresh Miss Your Smile Stencil are Hero Arts Orchid, Passion Flower, Soft Lilac, Grape Juice, Mint Julep and Antigua. I trimmed the panel to 8 1/4 to 3 1/4 and adhered it to a piece of Hunter Green card stock. To create the butterfly I used the Pinkfresh Butterflies Hot Foil Plate and some Crafter’s Companion Aurora Foil on a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb and a piece of Heat Resistant Acetate. On the card stock one I used the coordinating Pinkfresh Butterflies Stencils and Hero Arts Passion Flower, Grape Juice, Mint Julep and Antigua Ink to color in the butterfly. A little Black Copic Multiliner colors in the body. The coordinating Pinkfresh Butterflies Dies are used to cut them both out and they are adhered to each other on the butterfly body with Bearly Arts Glue. I added the panel to a card base of Neenah 110lb and then added the butterfly with 3M Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Pinkfresh Perfect Sentiments Hot Foil Plate and is also foiled in Aurora and cut out with the coordinating Pinkfresh Perfect Sentiments Die. I cut it out two more times from 110lb card stock and adhered them to each other and to the back of the greeting with Bearly Arts Glue. It’s then added to the card. For some more sparkle I added a few sequins from the Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Shimmer Mix.

I love the purples and greens together and that Aurora Foil is definitely my favorite! I hope that you like my card for today and as always, thank you so much for taking some time out of your day to spend with me! Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!
