20 Cards in a Tin - Day FOUR - Watercolor Butterflies

Good Morning everyone and HAPPY MONDAY! I hope you had a WONDERFUL Mother's Day. Mine was full of joy mixed with a bit of heartache, but the ache was overtaken by happiness as I heard from most of my children, enjoyed a BBQ, celebrated my mother-in-law and had a corn hole "tournament" with our pastor, his beautiful pregnant wife and their three kiddos! We enjoyed blue skies with big, white puffy clouds and dark skies shouting a storm is coming...but it never came. We continued to toss our corn hole bags, eat delicious food (did I mention it's strawberry season and we had strawberry pie) and thank God for family, friends and His many blessings!

Today is Day FOUR of my 20 Cards in a Tin class. I'm also using this card in my workshops this month because it is one of my favorites! If you have time, let me know what you think!

This GORGEOUS card has a Very Vanilla card base. The first layer is Island Indigo with the top layer being Watercolor paper. To get this look you simply color your embossing folder (I used the Fluttering Textured Impressions embossing folder) with your Stampin' Write Markers. Using the brush end, I colored the INDENTED side of the embossing folder.  Either side will work, but for this card I chose the indented side. Next, I spritzed it with water, laid the watercolor paper on top and ran it through the embossing folder. It's a STUNNING look! It needed just a little something so I added a Perfect Plum butterfly that I punched with the Bitty Butterfly punch.  The sentiment is from the Basket of Wishes stamp set and is stamped in Island Indigo! 


On the inside of the card I used the Papillon Potpourri stamp set to stamp a butterfly in Perfect Plum. Next, I used the Bitty Butterfly punch to punch another butterfly out of vellum and added some Basic Rhinestones to match the butterfly on the front! SU vellum is THE BEST...thick enough to punch without cracking! I LOVE IT!!!


I'll be back this afternoon to share today's "Make-It Monday"...but for now, I'm headed down the mountain to meet up with a friend! HAVE A FABULOUS DAY and THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by!
