I'm getting hooked on this larger card size and love the extra space it gives me to play around!!! Today's card was created using this beautiful Butterfly Blossoms digital image from the Digi Doodle Shop. This week the Digi Doodle Shop's Best were challenged to create a card using this awesome sketch. Since the midweek challenge over at OWH Stars and Stamps is all about BLING I couldn't resist adding a few of those to give this card a little extra sparkle!!!
The card base is a 5 3/4 x 11 1/2 piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock folded in half. Next I cut a 5 3/8 x 5 3/8 piece of PTI White and layered it with a slightly smaller piece of paper pierced Yoyo Yellow cardstock. The larger circle is 4 1/2" More Mustard cardstock. The Butterfly Blossom image was printed on PTI White using my Epson Photo Printer and colored in using copic markers. I paper pierced around the edges then layered on to a 3 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock.
The two smaller circles were punched of More Mustard cardstock using the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and attached using mounting tape. Using 5/8" White Grosgrain Ribbon I made the beautiful bow using this Single Tied Bow tutorial from Amazing Paper Grace then using a tweezers pulled another strip of matching ribbon through the backside of the bow and taped the ends down on the backside before attaching to the card base using mounting tape. To embellish the card I added smaller Kaiser Rhinestones along the edge of the larger circle.
Hope you have an awesome day!
