Butterflies of Happiness Birthday Card
Hiiii! Thanks so much for stopping in. This is a card I made for a very, very special friend, whose birthday was the day after mine. I didn't want to post this until I was sure she had recieved it by mail. She just loves butterflies and I hope this card made her day a little bit more special.
I decided to use a retired stamp set from Stampin Up's 2006 Winter Mini Catalog. It's called Butterflies of Happiness. I used one of the older techniques, "Sectioned Retiform" from the Technique Junkies Newsletter, the August/September 2004 issue. I hadn't done this technique in a long time, so it was fun,(and trying) to do it again! LOL It took me some time, but I really loved the results and I know She'll be thrilled with it! For the middle butterfly, I stamped it in Elegant Eggplant, Not Quite Navy, and Sage Shadow ink on vellum. I used a reserved amount of Dazzling Diamonds on the butterfly because I wanted the butterfly to be more noticeable than the glitter, if you know what I mean. I pop-dotted it, so it would be dimensional on the front of the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave me a comment and let me know you were here. It always, always makes my day, to hear from my readers. You are why I do this! And I do love sharing with you. Stop by again, soon. I hope you get a chance to stamp today!
