Here’s my card:
I began by using one of my favourite techniques, where I partially die-cut and partially emboss a piece of cardstock and for this card, I used the Penny Black Delicate Wings die. I’ve demonstrated how I do this on this card and I think it works really well when you want just one focal element.
In essence, one half of the butterfly is embossed, and the other half is die-cut – instead of using a piece of plain white cardstock, I chose to do the technique on a panel that I had sprayed with a range of homemade sprays (usually Distress Ink Reinkers, water and perfect pearls).
To highlight the embossed area of the butterfly, I used a small sponge dauber and went over it lightly with some Delicata Golden Glitz and Festive Berries Distress Ink.
I mounted the panel onto a bronze card base (which you can see peeking through the die-cut part of the butterfly).
To finish up, I stamped a sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps Fine Feathers set and dotted a few sequins.
