I had an opportunity to craft today as we had yet another snow day. Unfortunately, I am short on MOJO. Sometimes when I get an idea in my brain, I cannot let it go, even though it just is not coming together. Does that ever happen to you? Well, I am definitely there right now! But as always, this too shall pass!
This card is for Dynamic Duos-
Seize the Sketch-
And Simon Says Stamp- which is asking us to emboss on our project.
The card went through many changes before I settled on this design. The Cue Card word, 'Contrast' is what led me to using the black embossed background. Prior to that, the card was too 'muddy', without enough contrast.
The background image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps was stamped in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. The banners were stamped in Crumb Cake and fussy cut out. I die cut the butterfly, leaves, and Deco Label pieces and dry embossed the Deco Label die cut with a woodgrain embossing folder. I used a piece of linen thread for the butterfly body and head and added Stampin' Up Dazzling Details to it for some sparkle.
Lastly, scoring was added around the card base for interest as was a wood heart below the sentiment.
Thanks so much for stoppng by and have a blessed week!
