Butterfly Card




Welcome!

I'm back with a DT card for our new challenge-Shaped Cards-at Top Tip Tuesday

My card features the Butterfly Flip template from our current sponsor, Shape EZ, and you may recall that Tammy Louise  was a DT member in the past. We're thrilled she's back as our sponsor for this challenge, thanks Tammy!   

I used my new electronic cutting tool to cut the file. My pink background is a distress ink palette of pickled raspberry, worn lipstick and spun sugar {Note: I use mini misters and distress ink re-inkers to create distress sprays. One dropper mixed with 3/4 water yields beautiful color, thanks Tim!} I dry embossed the front with a dots folder, wet embossed it with a music stamp and Ranger's turquoise embossing powder, and Studio 490's black embossing paste was used over a butterfly on the Mini Specimens 6x6 stencil adding more texture. 







Prize is 2 Shape EZ templates of winners choice!


I am also linking this up to the Butterfly Bingo Challenge and I used two rows-pink and dry embossing along with wet embossing and flowers. :-)

Before I go I want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes and encourage you to join in my birthday giveaway if you haven't already. There are two packages up for grabs and the winners will be announced on July 1st. Click HERE for details and entry info, good luck to everyone!

Package One

Hugs,
Lisa

It's incredible what you can create with one of those electronic cutting machines, it's definitely something I'll consider investing in! This butterfly looks beautiful with both types of embossing techniques used, some ink there and paste here. You're great at using different mediums on your work!
