Wedding Butterflies

Posted by on August 21, 2011 in Butterfly, Hero Arts, Wedding | 28 comments

Good evening,

Popping in quickly with a wedding card. The wreath was made the same way as I made this wreath on a previous Christmas card. The butterflies were heat embossed onto vellum – something I have never tried before, but I like how they turned out. I am entering this into the CAS-uals Friday embossing challenge.

A close up of those vellum butterflies and the wreath which I distressed with Worn Lipstick and then cut around by hand. The photo doesn’t show the score lines on the back panel well, but they are more pronounced in real life.


Stamps: Hero Arts Playful Animals stamp set (CL155), Hero Arts Antique Engravings stamp set (CL383)
Ink: Versamark watermark ink, Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Worn Lipstick
Card: Regal Craft Card (white textured square – cut to size), X-Press It blending card
Other Supplies: Vellum, Zing embossing powder – white, heat gun, Kaisercraft perals – snow, pearl, cream, pink, Glossy Accents (to adhere butterflies), Martha Steward score board, Kaisercraft ‘Wedding” rub on.

Thanks for stopping by,
