Finally we are on to the card I made for Rachel from me and my OH.
I went pink, pink,pink with this one and thought she'd love butterflies :o)
The card base is Pink Pirouette and I mounted Rose Red card and Pretty in Pink DSP on top with a Scalloped Border Punched edge. I double punched Rose Red card with the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch. The butterflies are from the Butterfly Prints stamp set and are inked in Pink Pirouette also. The effect is very subtle. I added some sparkle with a big Basic Rhinestone on each butterfly.
I did this lovely effect with the ribbon by fraying one end and then grabbing a couple of threads and pulling on them. This gathers the ribbon together so you just have to push the gathering down the ribbon and keep going pulling until you have the length of gathered ribbon you need. It's stuck down using sticky strip.
The sentiment is actually from the USA Stampin' Up! set called Create a Cupcake. I really hope we get this in the 2011/2012 catty - I have my fingers crossed :o)
Right, that's it for today. I'm off to meet Hayley Gillie and discuss the stall I'm helping out with next weekend at the ArtStamp show at Newbury Race Course. If you live nearby, pop along and see what wonderful Stampin' Up! products and cards are on display and take part in a make and take project as well.
I'm really looking forward to it!
