Hi everyone. Hope all is well. I'm back today to share a little bit different kind of a card using some chipboard, distressing, die cuts, flowers, and some washi tape.
I have had these butterfly chip boards for quite some time, I bought that at a rubber stamp convention about 5 years ago. Yes, I'm a hoarder, and really I didn't know what I was going to do with them!
I knew this card needed to be a bit larger than what I normally make to fit everything I had in mind.
I started with the leafy die cut from Memory Box, cut this from some scrap basic grey paper I had laying on my table. From this I designed my card. The designer paper layer is 4 1/8 x 6 1/8. I distressed the edges using some distress brushed corduroy ink. I then used 2 different washi tapes to put along the bottom of this panel. I very rarely use washi tape, although I have been collecting them just because they are so pretty - lol. I love how this looks, it looks as though it is made on the designer paper already. I then layered this onto a piece of cherry cobbler, then onto a piece of darker tan (not sure what this is called, I found a couple of pieces in my stash, but not in a package) and then this was all layered onto my card base of soft suede textured - 7 x 5.
For the chipboard I sponged some brushed corduroy around the edges then layered this over the leafy diecut. From there I added some Prima flowers, and amber rhinestones. The seam binding ribbon was some I had from a while ago, but seem to match perfectly - color wise - after making the bow I added a basic grey brad to the center to hold it together. To finish off I added some more amber rhinestones to the front of the card as well as a studio calico wooden bird.
I hope you like my card today. I ended up making 2 more of these - one for my friends 60th birthday and the other for my sale basket. This one I will keep for a while - sometimes I find it hard to part with certain cards and this is one of them.
Enjoy your day! till next time,
