Update : WOW!! This card was a Crafty Sentiments Favourite this week. Thanks to all the team for choosing my card xx
To make the card: Some white cardstock - 11" x 5 1/2" was scored at 5 1/2" along the longest side.
Then a diagonal score made from one corner to the centre fold.
The card was turned over and the centre fold creased using a bone folder. The corner was folded to the centre line.
The image was printed onto white card a Spellbinders Large Octagon die used to cut it out. The card was left in the die and some Milled Lavender Distress ink was sponged around the stencil edges. The image was coloured with Copic pens and Sakara Clear Star used to highlight the ribbon , flowers and butterflies. This process was repeated for the sentiment which was computer generated. The four mats for the image and sentiment were cut from black and deep pink card using the scalloped octagons. Little Polka Dots and solid colour in Sweet Bohemia by Pink Petticoat was used to mat the base and triangle. The butterflies and vine leaves were cut from the scraps. Gems were added before the card was assembled.
