Well, that suits me and I hope it suits you all too - to know your work has been chosen by the DT gives one a real sense of pride and satisfaction.
The first challenge is ........ BUTTERFLIES!
I used my Stampin' Up supplies and tried a few things I had seen on the famous Pinterest.
The stamp set Butterfly Basics and the die set that goes with it was used for both cards.
Gold embossing on vellum
SU DS paper
Then I went to another level and decided to half die cut the butterflies out
Then I tried to carefully stamp over them - should have used the Stamp-a-ma-jig!
Stamped a second butterfly and fussy cut it, and placed on top
The folded back front of the card against the inside panel
Sentiment stamped inside
I was pleased with the outcome - I would do this again. As it was a straight copy of another crafter's work I will not enter this one into any challenges, but the first one was my take on a technique, so I will enter that one into challenges.
I will enter these in the following:
Crafting with Friends: Happy Birthday card - anything goes
Simply Papercraft: Anything goes - HB card
Outlaws: Monday Greetings
Southern Girls: anything goes
