Anything Goes - Card A Day Blog

Hi and thanks for stopping by. I'm starting off the Card A Day Blog's last theme for the month of April - Anything Goes. I decided to do some distressing and embossing for my card today.

I started off by making the card base and cutting the two panels.  I then inked the edges with vintage photo distress in.  I stamped using Early Espresso ink.  For the butterfly I stamped it twice, once on Kraft and again on the cream paper.  I used clear embossing powder on the cream paper then used the distress ink to bring in the blue.  I fussy cut both butterflies out and used Glossy Accents to glue where the body would be leaving the wings free. 

To finish off the inside I stamped my image off the journaling mat.

Thanks for stopping by.  Tomorrow Tina Campbell is the Designer at the Card A Day Blog so stop back to see her inspiration.
