Autumn Butterfly Birthday

>> Wednesday, September 25, 2013

While hopping around recently in blogland, I've seen alot of framing done lately.  I really like the look, so I decided to give it a try. Here's my take on a framed card and another use for those awesome Butterfly Ribbon Slides (681D).

I started first by cutting my card front from peach colored card stock. I inked the edges with orange ink, used a decorative border punch for the left side and then a corner punch on the right 2 corners.  I used Nestibility dies to create the hole in the center for my frame.  I stamped "As Another Year Flies By" (489F)  at the top of the card front and then ran it through the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I added some orange ribbon to the the left side and decorated the left side of the frame with Prima flowers and brads.  I stamped the Butterfly ribbon slide twice, colored both with Copic Markers and fussy cut them out. I attached them by layering them and then adding 3 black brads to the body. All of this completed the frame card front.

The center of the frame was created by stamping a panel of peach cardstock with the Silhouette Butterfly Background (536H) using Versamark ink. Then I heat embossed it with black sparkle embossing powder and attached it to the center of a black cardstock base.  

My final step was to attached the card front to the base using foam tape to create the frame depth. Wouldn't this be great for a Fall birthday? I guess I have my Aunt's October birthday card already finished! Yeah! 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll be back soon!

What a pretty card! You added so many elements that all work perfectly together and aren't overwhelming! I love how you put the bg just inside the frame too!

Love this card design and the great layered butterfly! Looks wonderful on the embossed background that you softened with the matching ink. And yes, time IS flying!
