Butterflies in the Sun

Hi folks, it's Holly posting today!

I was playing with one of the stencils, and I wondered if I could make a flat, mailable card with it.

I started by placing the Texture Shine stencil over white cardstock, and I sponged some yellow and orange inks over it. To tone down the whiteness of the negative spaces, I lightly sponged some yellow ink over the entire piece.

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the With Love stamp set by Stampavie, with some purple ink in the lower right corner.  

I cut out some purple butterflies with the Butterfly Delights, (Memory Box), as well as some orange butterflies from the Mini Dimensional Butterflies with Angel Wings (Cheery Lynn Designs). I wanted to give the orange butterflies a little something "extra" so I cut out the Cherish Border and saved the tiny little hearts from the "throwaway parts."  I adhered the hearts to the centers of the orange butterflies, and then I covered the hearts with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive and sprinkled them with Peruvian Lily glitter.  I set this aside overnight to dry completely.  Once the glitter hearts were dry, the stamped/stenciled piece was layered with a purple mat and then this was adhered to a Kraft base.

I thought that sentiment was perfect with this sun-splashed stencil piece.  I love the glittery hearts on the butterflies. It's a bit unexpected and fun!  This will be a great card to send to someone who has been having a rough time.

Cute card and so full of cheer! Thanks Holly!
