I recently signed up for Kim's 6 X 6" paper pad club and received this gorgeous Authentic paper pad called Remembrance. It is filled with lots of dark deep purples and light lavenders and greens. I absolutely love it!!
So today I have a card I made using several papers from that paper pad. In fact the only paper not from the pad, is the white card stock card base. I hope you love it as much as I do.
I started with a white card base cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I then cut a dark purple mat also 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" and adhered it to my card. I wanted the dark purple to show but not the white card base. I then picked 4 patterned papers from the pack and cut them at 2 1/2" x 1 7/8" and adhered them to my purple mat. I used my ATG gun to adhere the mats down.
I was browsing through the silhouette store and came across this lacy butterfly and flower cut out which I fell in love with. Of course I had to use it for my card. I cut the top layer out of more of the dark purple paper from the paper pad. The cut did not come with a back layer so I used the offset feature in the software to create a back layer which I cut out of white card stock. I used my Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere these two layers together. I allowed it try and then sprayed it lightly with some Iridescent Glitter Dust. (Another favorite product of mine!).
I had this little wooden butterfly in my stash so I painted it with some Seedless Preserves Distress Stain. (This is a special order item, contact Kim through the store customer service link for information on how to order). Once that dry I spritzed it with some Lavender Fresh Glitter Mist spray. I attached the circle to the center of my card using some foam pads I received from Kim as a gift for being in her Adhesive club. (That was an awesome club to be a part of. Be sure to sign up for the Cutters Creek Yahoo group to get the inside scoop on the clubs.) I used some small glue dots to attach my butterfly to the circle.
I haven't added a sentiment to my card because I think it could be used for many different occasions, like Birthday, Thinking of You, Get Well, or even a Sympathy card.
