Embossed Butterfly Thanks Card

Embossed Butterfly Thanks Card

Handmade Embossed Butterfly Card

<

I started with a standard A2 kraft card base, except this one was going long ways. Then I layered on two sheets of coordinating cardstock from the Abrianna paper stack. I am not sure the exact dimensions, because I just cut down to what I though looked good. To make the focal image, I cut a scallop at 3 inches in yellow patterned paper and a circle at 2 1/2 inches in cream. On the circle, I embossed two golden butterflies. Then I inked up the edges with Tim Distress Ink in tea dye. Then I used some gold embossing power to emboss the edges. Then inked the entire circle with Tea Dye and Victorian Velvet. Then adhered the circle to the scallop and attached it to the card with pop dots. I used my porcelain alphabet letters to spell out thanks, and then attached some ribbon and bow to finish off the card. I listed my supplies below and I hope you enjoy this card.
