Celebrate Today



Hello! It's Sharri here with you today.Thanks so much for stopping by!
The card I am sharing today is one I made for the last day of the April non-release festivities. I was not able to participate in the festivities on the 21st as my daughter went into labor that Friday night and I did not have chance to get to a computer to finish my post in time so I saved it to share with you today :^)

I used 3 stamp sets on my card, Beautiful Spring, Timeless Tags and Good Times
I stamped 4 butterflies from the Beautiful Spring set with versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I sponges yellow and different shades of orange ink on the butterflies wings and brown on the body before cutting them out.  

I adhered 2 of the butterflies to the middle panel of the card. I layer the other 2 butterflies on top but only added adhesive to the bodies and folded the wings up to create the illusion of fluttering wings. It also added dimension to the card. 


The sentiment is from Good Times and I stamped it inside the one of the tags from the Timeless Tags set. I cut it out with the corresponding Spellbinders Grommet Tag die.
The pattern papers are from My Minds Eye The Sweetest Thing Collection called Tangerine.

Here is a look at the sets I used:


Beautiful Spring

Timeless Tags


Good Times


Thank you visiting and enjoy your day!
