Paper craft project no. 146: Hello



Displaying guest designer badge.jpg
I’m very honored to be guest designing in this week’s challenge at Crafting by Designs. This week’s theme is “Thoughts of Spring” and for my GDT project, I decided to go with 2 things I associate with spring: butterflies and flowers. I also went monochromatic — orange is one of my favorite colors and it’s one of the happy spring colors for me.

To create my card, I used the TH/Sizzix On the Edge Brackets die to create my shaped card. Next, I repeatedly stamped the flowers on one side, layering them. I embossed the entire front of the card using an embossing folder with a lattice design and then running it through my Cuttlebug. On scrap paper, I stamped 3 butterflies in Versamark, sprinkled Distress embossing powder, and heat embossed. I fussy-cut the butterflies and adhered them to my card using foam dots. I die-cut and embossed a small label and stamped my sentiment. I finished the card by wrapping jute twine along the bottom.

I hope you’ll check out what the Creating by Designs DT has made and then perhaps join in on the fun! What are your thoughts of spring?

I’d like to enter this card to the following fun challenges:
