Love and Big Hugs - Sending Smiles & Butterfly Brilliance - GDP343 Theme Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today's card is for Global Design Project's #GDP343 Theme Challenge. 

The theme this week is Beautiful Bugs and I had to use a butterfly as I love the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set and the coordinating Brilliant Wings Dies as well as the Sending Smiles stamp set for the sentiment. I also used the Fern 3D Embossing Folder, Lovely Layers Vellum, Metallic Mesh Ribbon and 2021-2023 In Colour Opal Rounds.


- Use Basic White A4 card cut in half lengthwise and folded for the card base. Layer with a piece of the Basic White card embossed with the Fern 3D Embossing Folder and then Lovely Layers Vellum. Splatter some Polished Pink ink lightly onto the embossed piece prior to attaching to the card. 

- Stamp the butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set onto Basic White using Tuxedo Black ink and die cut or fussy cut out. Also die cut a large butterfly from Basic White card using the Brilliant Wings Dies. Colour the stamped butterfly with Stampin' Blends (Sweet Sorbet, Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate). Lay the butterflies over a piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon onto the card.

Stamp the sentiment from the Sending stamp set using Versamark ink onto Basic Black and heat emboss with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. Add some Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Colour Opal Rounds.
