I created another card with an alcohol ink background made from blues and silver mixative. I had a small panel leftover and decided to use it to create another card. I love when you can get two cards from one background. I had purchased this butterfly frame a while ago from China. It is interesting that when you purchase from there you usually aren’t give the name of the company who created it, so I just always note where I purchased it. It is a pretty frame.
I die cut the leftover alcohol ink background using a My Favorite Things Wonky Rectangle. I used the second largest size and it was perfect to allow the beautiful background colors to surround the die cut butterfly frame. I cut the butterfly frame three time from Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and adhered them together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive. The same adhesive was used to spray the back and adhere it to the alcohol ink rectangle.
I originally cut the sentiment from Paper Accents Silver Mirror Cardstock and stamped the secondary word from Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it with Ranger Detail Silver Embossing Powder. I wasn’t happy with the way it looked, I felt it got lost on the background and so I cut the Technique Tuesday Say It Happy Die an additional two times from some Neena cardstock and adhered them over the silver “happy” cutout using spray adhesive. I couldn’t do anything about the silver embossed word, but I felt that the sentiment looked better in white.
A side folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock. Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the focal image alcohol ink panel, but when I went to place it on the card front I felt it was too small, so I added a border of silver cardstock and thought that it looked much better.
