Embossed Butterfly Card

     This embossed butterfly card would work in ANY color combination, and has a great textured background made from tissue paper and specialty threads!

     To start with, I adhered white tissue paper to a piece of white cardstock using Ranger Multi Medium Gloss. I went over it with the gloss, added 3 strands of green, blue, and silver specialty threads, and crossed them to make an X, while curving the pieces as I glued them. You can add as many threads as you want, with no sewing required! 

     After drying and trimming around the edges, I simply sprinkled it with Lindy's Gang Magical Shaker (Bavarian Blue), sprayed it with water, and let it do it's magic! Then I embossed the Kaisercraft Buttefly Stamp from the Pen & Ink Collection with Emerald Creek (Midnight Sky) Embossing Powder, also used around the card base, and on the bottom half of the sentiment. The top part of the sentiment was embossed with EC (Topiary Green) Embossing Powder. Finally, I painted the butterfly with Lindy's Gang Sprays (Afternoon Delight Denim and Cathedral Pines Green) and curled up the wings.

          Thanks for your visit and hope you're doing well!
