Creating the Card
The first stage was to add the background layer. I used my Cutterpillar Pro
to cut the Pink Sapphire Delight cardstock to 19 cm squared, and the Gold Mirror card to 19.5 cm squared and then fastened them together with Collall All Purpose glue
I took the lighter pink cardstock with the butterflies all over it and decided to use this as an additional layer, I loosely based my design upon one of the cards made by the design team in the accompanying guide sheet. I wanted this layer to stand out too so I decided to give it a gold mat as well. The Gold Mat was cut to 19 cm by 14 cm and the butterfly cardstock to 18.5 cm by 13.5 cm. Again I attached these layers with the Collall All Purpose Glue and then stuck both of these layers to the card blank with the same glue. I was careful to place the upper layer, so the butterfly panel to the right was displayed, but there was still a little bit of the background visible at the left as well.
When it came to adding the main topper, I decided to transform it into a tag so used my Crop-a-dile Big Bite to punch a hole in it. I tied some gold ribbon from my short offcuts collection through the hold and fastened the tag onto the card with some foam pads. I used more of the foam pads to stick the sentiment down as well, so it had some lift and stood proud of the card design.
The finals step was to add a couple of the pearl gem embellishments to the sentiment, one either side. Then to complete the card I used my Layer perfect and added three faint pencil marks 0.5 cm’s apart to the bottom left of the card. I used a touch of Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue
on each of the pencil marks and fastened down the finishing gems.
