Birthday Butterfly Wishes

Hi, guys! Hope all is well!  Today I am sharing a birthday card with a butterfly theme for a friend to give. She is giving a gift of a set of my cards in a butterfly box, so I thought this card would go lovely with the packaging.   This card front is watercolor paper stamped with Distress Inks and Archival Ink.  The key to this card is to stamp with archival ink directly on the embossing folder and then run it through your machine. Then you can go as wild as you want with the Distress Inks as that really makes the embossing pop!

Stamps: Stampers Anonymous
Paper: Watercolor, Ginka K Designs
Ink: Distress Inks, Archival Ink
Misc.: Cuttlebug Folder, Ribbon

I had very inky fingers when I was finished with this card! But I feel it was worth it!

Have a great day!  Hope you find a few moments in your day to do something you love!

I so wish that I didn't care if my fingers were inky...but working in an office for my "day job", they just don't understand the life of a crafter. LOL

This is a lovely creation and so worth the "inky fingers" effort!

Hi! LOVE IT! I had inky fingers today, but at my day job, because my pen leaked on me.. I hope to make up for it this weekend. Have a great one!
