Sending Much Love

Good Sunday morning!  A clean and simple offering for today's card.  I started with a caught in crystal background that used Teal Marine Pixie Sparkles and Cosmic Lacquer on acetate, then covered with crinkled tissue paper.  I used the Slimline Double Stitched Frames and added a white frame around it.  I used the Slimline Essential Frames and cut a thin frame in black that I added to the white frame.  I inked the Butterfly Stampcut die in black and ran it through the die cutting machine.  I used Distress Markers to colour it then glittered it and added it to the right side of the card.  I cut the Sending Much Love sentiment in black and glued it on the left side of the card.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 5"  x  9 1/2" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, I know I looked at yesterday's house card because I remember scrolling down just to make sure the cat was still safely indoors :-) so I apologise for then not leaving a comment. Love the house dies and this retirement example makes me wish they had been around when a lot of my friends retired.
Today's CAS card is beautiful and the stampcut butterfly looks stunning, love it.

Ann T - sorry your cold is dragging on, hopefully we will have more sunshine soon to make you feel better.

With a background like this one you don't need lots of elements. A sentiment and a butterfly are enough for this stunning background.

Hugs from Toronto to you all.
Stay safe and healthy.
