Still digging the gold!!!

I’m back sharing a card today using the stunning Elegant Butterflies set from this month’s release at Clearly Besotted (ssshhhh – this set is currently in stock – grab it before it flies away again!!).  I love the butterflies and font combinations in this set, they’re so……elegant!!

I also had a go at the technique Julie Ebersole shared in the Online Card Class (Clean and Simple 3) showing a diffused panel of embossing.  Whilst I’ve seen this many times before on cards I’ve never actually tried it.  Steph is releasing some more stand alone dies soon now at Clearly Besotted and I used one of her new labels dies for the centre panel.  The rest I debossed with a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder (haven’t used one of those in YEARS!!!).

Especially For You butterfly

And here’s a close up of the butterfly – I coloured him in using a gold Wink Of Stella brush (swoon) and then smothered him in glossy accents – look at that shine!!

Especially For You butterfly detail

Well, I’ve been very busy behind the scenes here preparing for some exciting things ahead!  More on that next week – pop back on Monday to hear my (earth-shatteringly exciting) news!!!

Oh, and the current theme over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is …GLITTER!  I couldn’t NOT share this card and join in this week, could I?


Enjoy your weekends everyone!!

    Beautiful card, and what a fabulous job on the “embossing diffusing” technique 🙂
