Card for a Friend
It really made me happy to use soft pinks and off whites to make this card. I also incorporated a few handmade embellishments including the resin cameo, small resin roses (bottom right of the card) and organza flower (top left of the card). I used some Prima Say It in Pearls, I Am Roses mulberry paper flowers and cut some flourishes out of pink vellum (you can't go wrong with pink vellum!).
The bow was made using pink seam binding. I wanted the bow to stay puffy even in transit through the mail so I arranged the loops of the bow, stuffed some wax paper in the loops and coated the loops with Stiffy fabric stiffener. This process made the loops a little translucent, but I did not mind. The card base is Sweet Blush card stock from Papertrey Ink and the patterned paper is London Market by Pink Paislee. The butterflies were stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. The white looked a little stark against the soft pinks of this card so I took a soft pink copic marker and lightly colored over each butterfly. I think that covers it!
Now the challenge is to get to the post office so I can send this card off to my friend.
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting my blog!
