Butterfly birthday gift set

Posted by on October 6, 2010 in Butterfly, Cuttlebug, Gamsol, Stamping | 3 comments

Hi all,

It is my sister’s birthday tomorrow and I thought it would be nice to make her a little gift set of butterfly cards. I made 6 in total and then packaged them together in a clear box.

The butterflies are coloured in with prismacolor pencils then gamsol and then I added some white dots on each butterfly. The background is Kraft card run through the Cuttlebug with the Birds and Swirls embossing folder and then I used some Versamagic Cloud white archival chalk  ink and lightly rubbed it over the top so only the embossed areas picked up the colour – the result turned out a little shabby chic style ( I would use a brayer and put ink on the embossing folder as I have seen some people do it, but  don’t own a brayer!)

I just had to include all of the cards as the butterfly colours are so pretty and vibrant!

Supplies: Regal Craft Cards (textured white single fold), Kraft cardstock, Cuttlebug, Birds and Swirls embossing folder, Versamagic Cloud White archival chalk  ink, Bazzill cardstock (brown), white cardstock, Hero Arts butterfly Cling stamp (from Antique Engravings set), prismacolor pencils, gamsol, stubs, Hero Arts Classic messages stamps, VersaMark watermark ink, white embossing powder, white Pilot  pen, Kaisercraft pearls, Zots 3D clear adhesive dots.

I love making sets of things – I think they make a nice gift. Let’s hope my sister likes them!

Hope you are having a great day.
