Coral Butterfly

by Karen @ Carefree Creations - Coral Butterfly

I combined a couple challenges to create this card.

The layout comes from the Freshly Made Sketch #80 challenge. The colors are from the ColourQ #183 challenge.

To create the card, I first made a mask for the oval. I embossed the oval onto lightweight printer paper and closely trimmed it out. I temporarily adhered it to my Vanilla panel and stamped the flourish with Calypso Coral. Then I went back and did the actual embossing of the oval frame.

The butterfly is Calypso Coral ink on Blushing Bride paper.

To color the Pearls, I used a yellow Sharpie marker.

ETA – To get the embossed oval without the folder edge causes creases, I flip BOTH tabs of my BigShot platform up.

Whew, that is 3 cards in one day. And I think that seems to be my limit – I always seem to hit a wall after 3 cards. Hopefully I’ll have time to stamp during the week – there are just too many good challenges out there!

Thanks for taking a peek!

    Please, please will you tell me how you get the oval to emboss on the card without the creases from the folder edges? I’m desperate to find out.
