I'd been thinking about stamping this beautifully curvaceous frame off the edge of a card front so I gave that a go. And then (because butterflies were on my mind!) I thought some velvety Cherry Cobbler butterflies flying out of the frame might work. And then (because I've been dreaming about bling!) I finished them off with self-adhesive rhinestones. All it needed was a quick sentiment and hey presto! A three minute card happened!
I do like a bit of dimension on a card!
And this sentiment from Thank You Kindly is a great favourite of mine. The frame is stamped in River Rock ink which I find so useful when I want a 'gold' but don't want to bring out the embossing powder.
Here's how to make this card:
- Cut an 18cm x 9cm piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Score and fold it in half to create a card base.
- Ink up the frame from Notably Ornate with River Rock ink and stamp the image off the card front.
- Tuck a small piece of Cherry Cobbler card stock into the Beautiful Wings embosslits die and run through the Big Shot. Choose three of the butterflies and arrange as if they're coming out of the frame - but don't attach them yet.
- Stamp a sentiment using a stamp-a-majig to make sure it's straight.
- Now attach the butterflies using glue dots and add self-adhesive rhinestones.

A disaster happened yesterday - my beautiful camera broke. I'm in mourning! I have a part on order and hopefully everything will be okay by tomorrow. Please cross all your fingers (and anything else that's handy!) for me - that camera is quite a big part of my life!
Thank you so much for visiting me today. I'll be back tomorrow with a project I've been meaning to show you for a while so I'll hope to see you then.
And then it will be half term - whoopee!
