This week’s Color My Heart Dare required a bit of creativity using Pixie, Saffron, Whisper, and White Daisy. These are not color tones I usually put together, but I am always up for a challenge. As always, I’ve included a list of the products I’ve used to create this card at the bottom of this post.
Paper Needed: 5½” x 4¼” White Card Base, 5½” x 4¼” B&T Paper (I used Uptown Fundamentals), 4 5/8″ x 3 ³⁄8″ Cardstock (I used Whisper), 4½” x 3¼” Cardstock (I used Saffron), 2½” White Daisy Cardstock Circle, 3″ x 2″ White Daisy Cardstock (stamped images)
1. Adhere the 5½” x 4¼” B&T Paper to the card base.
2. Using an embossing machine, dry emboss the 4½” x 3¼” Cardstock with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder. Adhere the Embossed 4½” x 3¼” Cardstock to the center of the 4 5/8″ x 3 ³⁄8″ Cardstock.
3. Lay the 2½” White Daisy Cardstock Circle onto the 4½” x 3¼” Cardstock to determine where the small hearts will be stamped. (DO NOT ADHERE) Using Pixie Ink, stamp the Tiny Heart image onto the Embossed Cardstock randomly in the center of some of the honeycombs. Add Shimmer to the hearts using a Clear Shimmer Brush.
4. Wrap a 10″ piece of Pixie Twine twice around the base of the layered Cardstock. Adhere the cardstock onto the center of the 5½” x 4¼” B&T Paper using Thin 3D Foam Tape.
5. Create a Bow with another piece of Pixie Twine and attach to card with a Glue Dot.
6. Using Black Ink, stamp the “Always Be You” sentiment onto the 2½” White Daisy Cardstock Circle. Adhere the Circle to the card using Thin 3D Foam Tape.
7. Using the Dreamin’ Big Thin Cuts, create (2) Large Butterflies from the 3″ x 2″ White Daisy Cardstock. Using Pixie Ink, stamp two Large Butterfly images onto the cutouts.
8. Cut out the wings and body on one of the Large Butterfly images. Bend the wings up and adhere the center of the cut image to the center of the full butterfly image using Thin 3D Foam Tape. (This gives the illusion that the butterfly image is “flying”.)
9. Adhere the Butterfly image to to card, as shown, using Thin 3D Foam Tape. Add Shimmer to the wings using a Clear Shimmer Brush.
10. If desired, stamp a sentiment onto the inside of the card.
