Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Todays feature card was inspired by the current Ai Blog Challenge which is to create a project that features something that flies or floats….think birds, butterflies, airplanes, balloons, kites or anything else you can think up! Just have fun!

We will be creating an elegant square butterfly card! Let’s start with the beautiful butterflies from the Ai Butterfly Set (5200). We will be stamping and embossing these butterflies using a super fine detail white embossing powder. This will give our butterflies and elegant look! In todays video I will be showing you a simple and fun watercolor technique to color these butterflies by using our Distress Oxide Inks. Today we will be using the brand new Distress Oxide Ink in Saltwater Taffy along with some Picked Raspberry. These two colors will combine beautifully!

Next, with those two Distress Oxide ink colors we will do our background. To start, we will use some clear embossing ink with a gorgeous floral stencil and then apply that same super fine detail white embossing powder. Once the stenciling and embossing is done, we will then do some ink blending with our blending brushes.

For a bit more elegance we will add some pretty gold metallic layers and some delicate two-tone pearl gems!

I’ll show you how to create a matching square envelope using an envelope punch board! I love coordinating a beautiful envelope to go with my card creation…and your friends and family will love it too! Just keep in mind that these square cards do cost a bit more for postage…but I plan on hand delivering mine to a special friend!
