I had a lovely lunch today with the Monday night crafters, including Secret Summer Santa. We all enjoy it at Christmas so we decided to it on our summer outing too! I got a pot of gilding wax and a tube of Liquid Pearls inside a beautifully Decoupatched box, what crafter wouldn't want to get that?!. I remembered to take my camera but didn't remember to use it, so no pics of us stuffing our faces with yummy puds!
After I got home I made this summery, stamped card.
The sentiment stamps are both Papermania, the "Friend" sentiment being stamped in the same Distress Inks as the butterflies.
I used a Tonic border punch to add to the butterfly theme and die cut a butterfly using a Cuttlebug die. The die also has matching embossing folders, I chose one, and inked it up with Perfect Medium, then after embossing, sprinkled on white embossing powder and heated to add detail to my butterfly embellishment. I finished it off with pearls for it's body and a trail of gems.
