Well, we've had some cold weather lately in the DFW area and they gave us the day off due to the ice on the roads. Yippee!! More papercrafting time for me! :) I'm back today to show you a card I made using Viva La Verve's sketch for this week.
I was trying to go for a more masculine/all occasion card, but I couldn't resist adding a butterfly. The designer paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934 paper pad. To make the center panel, I die cut the white panel using a nestie and sponged it with blue chalk ink. I then, die cut a smaller panel out black cardstock and three patterned papers. I folded the ribbon in half and tied it into a knot. The butterfly was die cut out of book print and edged with a black copic marker. I attached it to the ribbon using a pin and folded the wings on the butterfly upwards for additional dimension. I was so tempted to add some bling, but tried to keep it as masculine as possible. :)
