Happy Wednesday!! It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.
This week's theme is: All About Mom
And here is the card I created:card I made last week, and I just really loved the combination! There might be another one in the future using the same papers/color combo. For my "Mom", I used a fun technique for lining up the dies perfectly. I will be sharing the technique as a Project of the Week on Monday, May 17. So, if you want to see how I do it (and it's really easy) come back and check it out.
For my card, I used the papers and a teal cardstock already on my desk, and I paired them with a bit of melon colored ribbon and some peach lace. I already had the gold die cut piece in my bits and pieces stash. I finished everything off with the stamped butterfly and some peach pearls that I have had for a long time. They are not an easy color to match! I had a little tiny strip of patterned paper left from cutting the background panel and it was just the right size to embellish the inside of the card.
After I stamped and colored the butterfly, I added some gold Nuvo Shimmer pen over the top which gives it a nice glittery shimmer. It's hard to see, but you can catch a glimpse of it in the photo below.
Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo. And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.
