Another groovy card

 Another groovy card

Hello friends! I wanted to share another card that I made for a few challenges: the Double Trouble paper crafting challenge #87 "It's hip to be a square," Try Stamping on Tuesday challenge #512, and Simon Says Stamp's Monday challenge "We can see clearly."



This card features Pearlescent Vellum from Lawn Fawn, Miami Vice Shimmering Bliss from Technique Junkies, the Essential squares die set from Ellen Hutson, Simon Says Stamp's Butterfly Kisses stamp and die bundle and Soda Springs Catherine Pooler sequins mix.

I started with the square background panel by die cutting a piece of white cardstock with one of the larger square die cuts. I sprayed the square with the Miami Vice Shimmering Bliss and then used a few stencils from my stash and some Tonic Nuvo Glimmer Paste in Esmeralda Green, Rina K Neon Glitz Glitter Gel in Hello Yellow and Mixed Metals Shimmering Bliss Topper from Technique Junkies to add some interest to the panel. I then set it aside to dry. I decided to play with the frame that is also cut when using the square die cut and added more of the Esmeralda Green paste on the frame and set it aside to dry.

Next, I stamped three butterflies on the Pearlescent vellum (the larger butterfly once, and the smaller butterfly twice) with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink and heat embossed them with Holographic embossing powder from Ranger. Next, I colored the butterflies with a variety of blue and green Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers

Then I spent some time die cutting. I used a hello die that I had in my stash to die cut  a piece of green and blue alcohol-inked Yupo paper. Next, I used a slightly smaller square from the square die set to cut a frame with some of the green Summer glitter paper from Concord & 9th. Finally, I die cut the three butterflies I had already stamped and colored.

Then it was time to assemble the card. I started by gluing the green frame onto the blue square. Next, I glued the bodies of each of the butterflies and left their wings free when I attached them to the card base. I glued the larger diagonal frame and sentiment directly to the card base as well as some sequins from the Soda Springs Catherine Pooler sequins mix to the card base and the blue square. Finally, I attached foam tape behind the blue square and attached the whole thing to the card base.

Thanks for reading!
