Today, I am squeezing in a last challenge for a week . . . yes, my class does actually start on Monday . . . really, this time. If you are a reader of my blog, you will know that I said I was satrting the course about two monday's ago and then had to retract, as I had made a mistake with the date!
Anywho, back to today's card. This one is a second bite of the Freshly Made Sketches #177 challenge, which is a sketch, the sketch below.
First I ran a white card base through my Cuttlebug and embossed the front with my EP.
Next, I cut a panel with my die for the layering piece.
Then I cut a scrap of cardstock that I had watercoloured and was left over from another project and the top layer of the butterfly out of vellum.
I used a strip of the vellum for the sentiment, just tore the end for a ragged look and coloured the back with an alchohol marker in a colour to complement my butterfly.
I then embossed a strip down the front of my layering panel with a masked off stencil. I heat embossed the strip of vellum with my sentiment and assembled my butterfly.
I finished by layering the panel to the front of my card with foam tape and mounted the sentiment and butterfly to finish.
All supplies are listed below. Thank you for taking the time to visit my little blog and I appreciate every comment you lovely folk leave, I will always reciprocate whenever possible. If you have signed up for the class, 'Stretch Your Dies', I'll see you in class!
Have a lovely Sunday! Hazel xx
