Assembling your Thinking of You Card
First, prepare your card base and center the black layer on the base. Second, using your die cutting machine, cut the circle and triangles with the Stitched Triangles and Stitched Shapes dies. In order to add texture to the triangles, run them through the die cutting machine with the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. Add the triangles to the card front by placing the smallest one about 1/4″ from the right side, then layering the larger ones on top. Next, stamp your butterfly image in Versamark ink on the circle and heat emboss with gold embossing powder. Similarly, stamp the sentiment in Versamark ink on the black card stock and heat emboss with white embossing powder. By using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the circle to the card, you add depth.
Finally, add details to the butterfly by coloring it with Stampin’ Blends and adding Wink of Stella for some sparkle. Also, add three Opal Rounds, which really add another layer of bling!
