Sadly, my scraproom is a total pit so it took me about an hour or so to dig out my scrap desk! ha But after I finally found it I got busy making this card. I started with a sketch challenge from The Sweetest Thing. The fun sketch along with my gorgeous new embossing folder really got me inspired to create!
Today is a very windy day here in Las Vegas and I opened my window to get a bit of a breeze. I have a rack of paper over by my window and the wind blew a piece of kraft paper off the rack onto the floor while I was cleaning off my scrap desk. I took that as a sign I needed to make a card using kraft paper! LOL
(Look how fantastically this folder embosses!!)
I made the card base with the kraft paper, then pulled out some orange cardstock from my stash. I embossed a piece with my lovely new embossing folder and also trimmed some to layer on the card. I embossed a large piece of this orange cardstock...I might be making another card with it to share soon! ha It is too pretty to waste!
I have the Bebunni Papercrafting Double Disc CD-ROM and printed out a sheet of custom paper with the sweet little butterflies on it. (love!)
I stamped out the largest butterfly from Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Flying Colors stamp set using some Tsukineko Delicata ink in Golden Glitz. This ink is so yummy! I fussy cut the butterfly out and rolled his wings around a pencil to give him some dimension. I pulled out my caramel skittles from my friend Carri and added some to the body of the butterfly and to the topper of the card. I love these so much. They just make things a little extra special.
For the sentiment I grabbed my Bebunni EZMount Stamp Set - Bebunni Celebration and stamped out "It's Your Day" with my Tsukineko Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black on Luxury Centura Pearl Snow White Cardstock. Then I colored it with my Spectrum Noir FS3 marker to color coordinate with my papers. I finished the card with a bit of ribbon from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by today. Until next time...happy scrapping!
