Hello there! I have another Valentine's day card to share. Most months I barely get a card made for the Reverse Confetti stock your stash challenge
, but this month I have managed to get two done! Yay me, lol! I combined the stock your stash challenge with the current Fusion challenge
to make my card. I used both the layout and the colors from the inspiration photo for my card. I did some simple watercoloring on some watercolor paper with a blue and purple ZIG marker and then die cut the RC Heart Love Pretty Panel from that when it was dry. I die cut a second one from some scrap paper to make it a little more substantial because I decided that I wanted to create a shaker element with the die cut. Cutting the foam tape thin enough was a little tricky, but I managed to get it done in most spots. I adhered my die cut pretty panel to some acetate and then trimmed it out when everything was dry. A simple strip of blue gingham patterned paper was adhered to a white cardstock base, I added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and then adhered the panel over the top. For the butterflies (die cut using the Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts) I did some additional simple watercoloring with blue, purple and pink ZIGs and when the paper was dry die cut the butterflies. The largest one was stamped with the word you (I used part of a sentiment from the Whole Lotta Thanks stamp set) using VersaFine CLAIR ink in Nocturne and adhered to the shaker element. I then arranged the rest of the butterflies. In retrospect I think I should have arranged the butterflies differently, but I still like how it turned out.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
