Glittery Garden Hello


Hello there everyone – Jen from Caffeinated Papercuts here to add some sparkle to your day! I don’t know about where you live, but here it’s been pouring rain for two days straight. We even lost power at work this morning for nearly three hours. Yuck! I needed something to cheer me up, and this card was just the ticket:

The last throes of summer in a card; glittery florals and dancing butterflies. Sigh. I used one of my favorite stencils, the Hero Arts BasicGrey Floral Vines for the background and some pink glitter embossing paste. Wowza – talk about glitter without the mess!

For the butterflies I stamped one of the Stamp & Cut Butterflies (which are on sale – you’re welcome for the enabling) in black ink then heat set it with clear embossing powder. The matching die made it easy to quickly cut them out and pop them onto the flower garden. To finish it off, I clear heat embossed the little ‘hello’ sentiment that comes with the set in the corner and popped my panel onto a navy card base.
