Butterfly Wishes


This isn't really *in season*....but I was using up some more odds and ends...this time some flourishes from Maya Road that needed a home! I ran them through the Xyron machine and covered them in Art Institute's Cornflower Ultrafine glitter. The card base is white. The photo corners (SU! Punch), the butterflies (Martha Stewart Punch) and the sentiment (BasicGrey's Journal Block Set) are out of some specialty pearlescent cardstock (The Paper Cut). I ran some miscellaneous designer paper through the Paisley Cuttlebug Embossing Folder and sanded it for contrast. The flower center are two punches from Martha Stewart's line. The flower center is SU!'s 5 Petal Flower punch that I used on white shrink plastic. I stamped it with a BasicGrey stamp before punching. I colored it with Spica Glitter Pens by Copic after shrinking. The butterflies are stapled on and then the pearls are over the staples.
