Hi there! I’m happy to share a card I made using the new set Warm & Wonderful, illustrated by Rupa Shevde for Gina K.Designs! This is a wonderful Wintery set in true Rupa style!
I decided to highlight the delicate snowflakes she drew in this set and the sentiment ‘A snowflake is winter’s butterfly’ – isn’t that nice?? I wanted to make snowflake butterflies to go along with it too. So, I grabbed my Take Flight set and inked the edges with a marker. First, I made a ‘mask’ (see pictures below) which would allow me to be able to stamp my snowflakes on the inside of the butterfly. I stamped the snowflakes on the new Mother of Pearl cardstock by Gina K. which has a beautiful shimmer to it! Be careful when using a dye ink on it, it takes a wile for the ink to dry. You can heat set it if you don’t have time to wait for it dry on its own.
After I stamped and heat embossed (clear powder) my snowflakes, I sponged some Cool Caribbean ink, which made for a subtle look on the butterflies. I finished off my card with a layer of smoky slate cardstock and my card base is the new Ocean Mist. Lastly, I added some pearls for pretty accents. I just love this clean and simple card that packs a big punch with this beautiful new cardstock!
