Especially for You Card

Hi, Connie here with a card that screams Spring! I created Especially for You Card with Whimsy Stamps and some of the new products by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I was really excited about the 3D Foam Circle Frames Black and thought they would work well for showcasing the stamped image.

Especially for You Stamping

The beautiful Lilac & Butterfly stamp was stamped on white cardstock, colored with Distress Oxide inks and then splattered with silver Perfect Pearls. The image was then cut down to a 4″x4″. I used a stamping platform so the butterfly image could be re-stamped several times, resulting in a rich black color on the butterfly wings.

Creating the Card Front

Cut the 3D foam circle frames Black in half and adhere them to the card front. Apply Perfect Pearls over the top of the 3DFoam Circle Frame Black with a soft brush. The card front is ready to be adhered to the back.

Adhere the completed card panel to the grey cardstock. I thought the new 3D foam products worked so well at highlighting the beautiful butterfly. So perfect!!
