So yesterday I told you I would do some “upgrades” on the same card… Look carefully at the new card and compare it to the picture from yesterday. It’s almost like a “Find the error” type of game!!! Can you spot the differences? (There’s quite a few!)
First I used the Apothecary Framelits to cut the white piece at the back. I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack to punch the holes on the border. So easy to use since you already have the template made for you!!! For the flower, I made it pretty much the same as yesterday (check yesterday’s post for the technique) but I added some Dazzling Diamonds to add a little sparkle! I ran the leaves throught the crimper to add some texture. (I’m still sad that the crimper is now retired!!!)
For the butterfly, I stamped it on Daffodil Delight card stock (instead of Pumpkin Pie) with Early Espresso ink. I used the blender pen to color it with Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral and Early Espresso. It looks more real this way. I like it way better!!!
The background is also different, I stamped little flowers in Daffodil Delight and embossed it with the Fancy Fan folder. I changed the Large Oval greeting for a little “pennant” shape and added a Calypso Coral Organza ribbon to complete the card makeover!
Here’s a close-up of the butterfly:
