Swaps Part 3

 Good Morning.  So this is the third and last one of my projects for convention swaps. Again - thanks to Connie Ingram for taking swaps for me!!

This card actually took me much longer to make than I initially estimated.  Of course, I was making 18 of them for swaps...  That is a lot of squares to cut and butterflies to punch!

This card uses two of my favorite colors - Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight. 
 The card base is daffodil delight with a layer of rich razzleberry. 

The front piece of the card is a layer of whisper white which has been embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder in the Big Shot.  To add the color to your embossed project, use a brayer and ink the raised side of the embossing folder with daffodil delight ink.   I added a little shine to this layer by spraying it with some shimmer spray.

The designer paper is International Bazar.  I cut squares of designer paper to 1 1/4".  I cut rich razzleberry squares to 1 3/8" to layer the designer paper.

The butterflies are stamped using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set.  I used the butterfly punch to punch out the butterflies.  The butterflies are stamped using daffodil delight, pretty in pink, old olive, rich razzleberry, marina mist and calypso coral inks.
I used Pearl basic jewels and Rhinestone basic jewels to decorate the centers of the butterflies.

Finally I finished the card off using a bow tied from Rich Razzleberry stitched grosgrain ribbon.

NOTE:  to make shimmer spray - add a few drops of shimmer paint to a spritzer bottle and add rubbing alcohol.  Shake and spray for a nice sheen.

Happy Stampin'!
