Embossed Butterfly Birthday Card

This sweet, summery Birthday Card was made expressly for Birthday Sundaes CH# 13 - Embossed Birthday Card and for Shabby Tea Room Ch# 66 - Pink Lemonade.

I haven't used my brass embossing plates for many years so decided this was a great excuse to get them out  of the box and hand emboss a beautiful butterfly.  I am in the process of saving up for a Cuttlebug (can't wait to get one!) so had to emboss by hand.  I  thought it was hard to see the embossed butterfly so I lightly brushed some chalk ink over the top of it and LOVED the outcome...though I must admit I was holding my breath the whole time I did it!  Anyway, hope you like it too!  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Rhine stones on small butterflys by Heidi Grace
  • Cardstock is Core'dinations in Love Potion and plain beige
  • Floral paper is from Paper Adventures (Ivory Floral design)
  • Cricut Cartridge 'Wrap it Up' used for tag on page 47
  • Fiskars paper crimper on rose cardstock
  • Small butterfly punch by CARL
  • VersaMagic chalk ink in Perfect Plumeria and Spanish Olive
That's it!  Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!  I adore your comments and adore followers!
