Everything came together really quickly using this week's sketch from Mojo Monday! I wanted the papers to be the showcase of this card, and these larger pieces were perfect. There are ten different sheet designs in the pack, and I was able to use five of them on this card.
The pattern in the two front pieces is done in a gold color, so I decided to use a gold shimmery paper for the backing of my pieces. However, other than glitter paper, CTMH didn't have the paper I wanted. SO - I created it! I used Desert Sand cardstock, which is as close to gold as any of the CTMH cardstocks. I then used the new Gold Shimmer Brush just around the edges of these cardstock pieces - and I had gold shimmer paper! If you click on the photo you will open a larger version and be able to see the shimmer from the pen. I also used the Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder for the front sentiment. The sentiment is one of four birthday greetings from the "Birthday Sparkles" stamp set (B1537).
The final addition is the acetate butterfly. I used Ranger's Alcohol Inks (clover, aqua, and tangerine) to color a piece of acetate, then cut it using the Leavenworth Butterfly Trio die set from Memory Box.
This card is a part of my April Stamp Club classes that start tomorrow - finished it just in time! Hop over to the Mojo Monday Blog and check out the other great creations using this sketch. And thanks for taking the time to visit me today.
