Butterfly note card

 International Art & Soul, a challenge which has been put together to incorporate any type of craft, paper, wood, flowers, recycling, glass - the world is your oyster :).

Challenge #4 - Embossing

Hi there happy crafters :) I love the touch feely textures of this card and the soft blues and white give it a really fresh feel.  I used an embossing folder from Crafters Companion and coloured the embossed sections with a pale blue Polychromos crayon then edged some of the areas with a silver pen.  The flower border was the next bit done and I used the same technique minus the silver pen.  A stamped sentiment was created and die cut and added under the embossed strip.  Next I die cut a butterfly in white card and mounted it on pale blue paper, then die cut some leaves in silver and mounted this group on the card. To finish off I used silver Liquid Pearls on the bodies of all the butterflies.
