Butterfly Congratulations

I decided to make a card to congratulate the follower who wins my candy.  I hope the lucky person will like it!  If you would like to win this card, feel free to enter my candy giveaway. It's all packed up with my candy and ready to mail to the lucky winner.


For this card, I covered a white card base with hexagon paper and added a strip of black cardstock towards the bottom of the card.  I stamped a butterfly on watercolour paper, coloured with watercolour markers, mounted on butterfly/flower paper, layered on black cardstock, and affixed to the card with foam tape.  I printed the sentiment, fussy-cut, and affixed to card.  Lastly I embellished with a metal butterfly accent, a black bow, and six red rhinestones.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamp:  Butterfly (Sunshine Design)
  • SentimentTrimgym Digistamps, Papers and Images - thank you, Jo.
  • Ink:  StazOn Onyx Black
  • Watercolour Markers:  Tombow
  • Watercolour Paper:  Canson
  • Cardstock:  Recollections (black)    White Card Base:  Domtar
  • Patterned Paper:  Honeycomb (Scrap Illusions/Optic Illusions - thank you), butterfly/flowers (Trimgym Digistamps, Papers and Images - thank you, Jo) 
  • Ribbon:  Offray
  • Embellishments:  Metal butterfly square (unknown from my stash), rhinestones (Dollarama)
