Butterfly card, butterfly craft, embossing, embossing powder, Express Yourself, Papillon Potpourri, Stampin Up, Winter Frost
Yesterday I showed you a 30th birthday card I made using the Winter Frost DSP. Today I wanted to show you two similar cards using the Papillon Potpourri set and my silver embossing powder:
The butterfly looks amazing with the silver embossing. It’s a bit hard to capture in a photo but a close up might help:
The second card has an embossed message ‘Always thinking of you’ (from 2013 hostess set ‘Express Yourself’) on the bottom left:
I learnt a tip when doing this embossing. Make sure you emboss and THEN stick your paper to your card. I decided to emboss this message after I’d already made the card and the heat gun made the glue come a bit unstuck which I had to go back and fix. Lesson learned!
As I said yesterday, I really only bought this DSP to give myself a challenge by working with colours outside of my comfort zone (and it’s a bargain, a stack of 48 sheets, 24 each of 2 double-sided designs for $11.95) As it turns out though, I absolutely LOVE these cards and can’t wait to try more using this paper. I still can’t imagine using it for Christmas cards though!
I hope you enjoy. Thanks for reading.
