This card is made using the Our Daily Bread Designs -I am the Way! set that was released in February. The stamps are so versatile and fun to use!!! I made this card for 3 different challenges on Splitcoast: the monochromatic challenge CC182, Pile Up Embellishments WT204, and White Based Cards LSC 146. I was inspired by a couple of other blogs who double embossed the backgrounds on their cards and just had to try it. I love the effect! I water colored my lily and gold embossed it. It is also layered and dimensionalized. I used two punches from Martha Stewart for the butterflies and foliage behind the flower. All of the edges on the card and the spots on the butterfly are gold embossed.
CARD RECIPE:
STAMPS: I AM THE WAY- Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper: Basic White from SU
Accessories: Ribbon from American Crafts and Ribbon Bowtique, Pearl Button from Joann Fabrics, Martha Stewart Butterfly and Foliage punch, gold embossing powder, stamens from Prima Flower set (Embossed), Prima flower, gold metallic thread
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Thanks for stopping by!!
