I am SOOOO far behind in my card making. I had to stay up late last night and make a bunch to get caught up. I tried to get pictures of them all before they went out in the mail so I hope to get the time to get them posted soon. This was a fun one to make! I hit the Sketch Challenge at SCS. I usually hate doing 3-D layers and bulk because I never know how they will survive the mail, but I gave that up. I have so many embellishments that never get used and it only cost me just a few cents more to mail. This one (ok, I made 2) will go to my brother-in-law & sister-in-law and once of my close friends and her husband who both had anniversaries last weekend....today I NEED to get a name plaque and a wedding card done for a wedding on Saturday.
My Big shot sure got it's work out last night! Of course I had to use dies that would only cut on piece at a time, but it was worth it. I did do a bit of sponging on this. I sponged around the outside of the heart and the stamped vines. The flowers I stamped in the Regal Rose and then rolled the edges in the Chocolate Chip. The butterflies are adhered with mini glue dots with their wings folded up just a bit. I do not know if you noticed but split the layer behind the vines so that it would show up on each background piece better. I covered the splits with the flower and the heart.
Sorry for the poor photo. The sun has not shown it's face here for a few days and I was not able to get to my photo box this morning. I am re-arranging and it was too hard to get out right now.
