Have y’all checked out the opening day of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges on Splitcoast? I made this for Lydia’s opening challenge and also for this week’s Featured Stamper (FS286), Monika! It was hard to narrow it down to one, but I finally picked her Happy I Do Day . I kept the general layout and lots of white with the butterflies, but I changed the embossing folder and sentiment.
The sentiment is from Our Daily Bread designs. I stamped it in charcoal chalk ink and used the ODBD Eternity label die (by Spellbinders) to die cut it. On the larger label, I embossed images from the Eternity set w/ a clear sparkly embossing powder before die cutting it. The butterfly was embossed w/ the same powder onto vellum before die cutting it and the plain white layer w/ the ODBD custom butterfly die.
After using an embossing folder on the background, I traced a few of the lines w/ a VersaMark pen then heat embossed it. I added some white enamel accents around the sentiment frame and on the raised dots of the background. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
