The challenge for September over on the Circle Blog was to incorporate a window element into a project. I decided to do a card, and got out my Gypsy to design! I used the butterfly blackout image from Give a Hoot. I cut it out once as part of the card base, and then again within a rectangle for my background (a beautiful shimmery teal!). I used “Coffee Bean” dew drop ink to ink up the edges of my cardstock, including the negative space of the butterfly – I wanted to be sure it stood out!
Since I had the cut made on my actual card base, and the background paper, I was able to sandwhich a thin sheet of clear pastic between the two in order to create an actual window. Now you can’t imagine how excited I was that I had the perfect ribbon in my stash – the exact colours I was using, without planning ahead!!! LOL I love walking over to my stash and finding just the right piece!! 🙂 It is printed ribbon from Colorbök.
I used a stamp from Fiskars’ Good Time Quotes with Staz On ink for the sentiment and lastly, I added some pearl accents to create the butterfly’s flight path and add a little punch to the corners 🙂
Thanks for stopping by again!!
