Love Is In The Air - Week 4: Flowers, Flutters & More (Card 2 of 3)

A whole month to share all the love that is in the air!  

During January, I will be featuring posts celebrating hugs, kisses, and Valentine wishes.

This week's focus is on flowers, flutters and more. 

Sweet Flights

In the previous post, flowers were featured.  Today the focus is "flutters".  These butterflies are beautifully illustrated with a loose and flowing design.  Just a bit of color is all that is needed for them to come to life.

This card is another example of how quickly a white card blank can be transformed.  Two strips of soft teal cardstock  were stamped with a border from Rose Edging (Penny Black) in Wedding Dress Memento Luxe and placed on the top and bottom of the card base.

The butterflies and sentiment (Valentine Dance - Penny Black) were stamped on a smaller piece of white cardstock in Onyx Black VersaFine and heat embossed with clear powder.  The butterflies were colored with Copics.  The finished panel was attached to the front of the prepared card with dimensional foam.  A pearl in each corner adds a finishing accent.

Have a wonderful day,
