Today's card was lots of fun to make. I used a technique called Tea Bag Folding. Tea Bag Folding uses small squares of paper and folds them to make different shapes and images. I folded two squares of paper to make a pretty butterfly for this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. Here is my challenge card:
And here is the FMS banner:
I built my card around the sketch and the butterfly. The butterfly is crafted from a piece of designer series paper (dsp) from the Pretty Petals DSP Stack. This bright blue paper worked beautifully for my butterfly.
For the background, I spritzed Mint Macaron and Pacific Point ink on Whisper White cardstock. Sorry, it's a little hard to see in this picture.
To the background, I added a strip of black text from the Neutrals DSP Stack. Next, I used the Hearts Border Punch to make a pretty strip from Pacific Point cardstock.
To finish my piece, I embossed the sentiment in black and added a few rhinestones. (Yes, I love my bling.)
Finally, I mounted the piece on Pacific Point cardstock and then put that on my Basic Black card base.
I think my butterfly looks like it could flutter right off the page! What do you think? Let me know in the comments below. I love reading them!
