Hi Everyone, It's Jackie from snowy Alberta once again. I'm getting real tired of all this snow, it's suppose to be spring! Anyways I'm back with a spring like birthday card featuring Karen Burniston Butterfly Pivot Card (767). I cut out the butterfly pivot card using Early Espresso paper for the base and using Bo Bunny's 'Primrose' collection for the rest. For the front of the card, I cut out "Happy Birthday" using Elizabeth Craft Designs using Black Velvet paper. I cut out the 3 silhouette butterflies from Karen Burniston Butterfly Pivot Card (767).
One butterfly was cut out using ECD double -sided adhesive and I applied Silk Microfine Glitter 'Leaf Green' (634) to it. I then used the overlay die from the same die collection and cut it out using black velvet paper and applied it on top of the green glitter butterfly.
I also cut out the bodies of butterfly 3 times using the same black velvet paper. The other 2 butterflies, I used a background technique that I found here.
The other butterflies were cut out of the Bo Bunny paper called 'Primrose Bliss' and again I cut out the butterfly bodies using black velvet paper and Butterfly Pivot Card die. I then cut out 2 strips of background paper that I used for the 2 butterflies on the front of the card. I then ran it thru the butterflies embossing folder by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I then sponged on some Victorian Velvet Distress ink to highlight the embossed areas. For the tag on the right hand side I used a sticker by Bo Bunny Primrose collection and cut it out using Elizabeth Craft Designs die called Tags (763). For the left hand tag I stamped the saying from stamp collection called 'Occasional Quotes' by Stampin 'Up using black crafters ink and embossed using clear embossing powder. Again I cut it out using ECD die called "Tags (763)". I added some pink/brown satin ribbon by May Arts.
