A Card for RSCC#20 & LCC#2

Hi there! I am kind of overwhelmed with so many things I still have to do this week. We will be traveling to Mexico to spend Christmas with my parents, and even though I like to travel, I alway get nervous. By the way, my mom is feeling better now πŸ™‚ . Trying to gain some time of the few days I have before our trip, Β I made a card for two challenges. One of them is Raspberry Suite Color Challenge#20,Β and the other one isΒ Lucy’s Cards Challenge#2. I Used the colors from the first challengeΒ (rust, light aqua, cream, chocolate and Kraft), and the concept (wings and strings) from the second one. Please take a look:

Card stock: Bazzil β€’ The Paper Company β€’
Ink: Versamak β€’ Memento (Rich Cocoa dye ink) β€’ StazOn (timber brown) β€’
Stamps: Hero Arts (Cling Butterfly) (sentiment) β€’ Stampabilities (faded text background) β€’
Tools: Cuttlebug β€’ Cuttlebug (D’Vine Swirl embossing folder) β€’ Sewing Machine (stitching) β€’
Other: Pearls β€’ 3M foam tape β€’ Stamp n Stuff (embossing powder) β€’ Wire β€’ Bobbin Ribbon β€’ twine β€’ Grafix clear plastic β€’

Thanks for stopping by πŸ˜‰ Have a great day!

  1. I love butterflies and this one is a beauty. Very pretty card. I know what you mean about traveling. A few days before we go anywhere, I start feeling anxious. Once I am at my destination, things are fine. For some reason the getting there is hard. I know you will have a fabulous time.

  2. This is an amazingly stunning and beautiful card.
    I really have to ask a very “silly” question as I am new to the art of stamping and cardmaking, and I just love the wire feelers on the butterfly, but what thickness of wire is the best to use for this method?

    Keep crafting your works of art, I love to look and be inspired.

    • Thanks Brenda. I bought my roll of wire at Michaels, and this what I read on the sticker: “26 GA 1/4 LB Bright”. I hope, this helps. It is not very thin, but using pliers you can easily work with it.
