This card was alot of fun. I made my butterfly out of tulle ,fibers, resin, mini marbles, I add a vellum butterfly with yarn for a back ground and happy birthday is done in silver foil.. such a fun card right down to the inside sentiment.
Cut out butterflies die cut chalked with water color brush then ran them threw embossing folders with pretty different designs.
Did the background of trees with a embossing folder, came out real well. Foiled the happy birthday card and envelope to match. I love my go press foil machine, It works great with my big shot machine. add pearls. ran out of colors so used sharpies to color coordinate.
hello friend greeting card, did a diagonal cut with the word Hello also foiled the hello in red the envelope Also. The inside of this card is lavender with cut out flower pieces…. Usually throw away the small inserts of the flower die but decided to use as a flower to match colors of the card….
I love the way the cards turned out this year it takes me a day and a half to make an average card with this much detail .but I love the reactions I get from people who receive them makes it worth my while.
This is a different horse I made, couldn’t find a photo of the all purple background that I made For Michelle for her birthday, she loved it anyways.. This is the third one I made each is always a bit different as I can never find the same books to repeat images.some of the reigns are made of velvet papers, black… really eye catching. buckles are from photos of lady’s purses. Its really fun love this… THANKS to all my friends for giving me their magazines to use in my art……
Torn papers and some I had to Cut really thin lines, used card stock , Mulberry papers, scrap book papers Velvet papers from Cricut. And some tissue papers for back grounds. White paper is eye glass cleaner paper cut in squares to make apples shine……
She only took me 2 days , it’s hard to believe I must be getting better at this craft ,or I am skipping details. anyways I love her, ………………so shes done… I love tearing the paper’s and seeing things appear , at first they look kind of undone and not right . But the good thing about this art is if you don’t like the results you can always tear up more paper and cover up the mistakes….. oh wait there are no mistakes only happy findings………
This was inspired by my nephew TEDDY… He used to carry a stuffed Mr. Duck every where he went.. Hard to believe , He is all grown up now…… I am enjoying tearing papers and fitting them like puzzle pieces. its a slow long process . The best part of this is if you don’t like something you can always glue an other piece over the one you didn’t like…. added some mulberry paper to fluff him up some…..
Inside card. This card was dry embossed the trees.
The bird is a die cut. Birds on a wire. I cut one off the line to use on this card. I lightly used Brown ink dabbing it to the trees for color. I sprayed sheer shimmer sparkle to jazz it up. The inside was hot foiled stamped the envelope with red ink.
