Beautiful spring-like matching cards, tags and bookmark from our talented guest designer Viv today.
Love those little sets. They are quickly done, and it's so nice to have a matching set along with a present, don't you think?
Why not let Viv know what you think of her samples in a comment below?
I first made three white card blanks using some textured card to measure 9 1/2 cm x 9 cm and used them tent fold.
I stamped a large butterfly on a matching piece of card ( approx 7 cm x 6 cm). I love how the stamp has writing on to add a bit of interest too.
I used a Memory Box die to cut some tiny butterflies. I stuck four of the largest butterflies to the body of the large butterfly stamped earlier.
I added two smaller butterflies to the middle of the other four.
The last butterfly I coloured to match the large butterfly and stuck that one to the centre of the large butterfly stamp.
I added a clear gem ( coloured to match using a Promarker pen),..... handy tip.
I used small 3d pads to stick the butterfly topper to the main card.
I used three nice bright Spring coloured inks to make three matching little cards.
I am so temped to make three more now !
I first printed a few sentiments onto some white textured card.
I then cut it to (8 cm x 2 cm) and used a corner rounder to round off the edges.
I sponged some ink to add a bit of distressing to the edges.
I punched a small hole for the ribbon and stuck a tiny butterfly to the tag ( after first colouring using more ink to match).
I coloured some narrow satin ribbon ( using same method
as when colouring the gem) and added that to the tag.
I made three tiny tags in all to match the cards.
I used three of the smaller butterfly stamps ( from same set as the large one used earlier) to stamp on to a piece of white card (13 cm x 4 cm.)
I stamped a sentiment from the same butterfly set also.
I rounded the corners again then inked the edges.
I punched a hole and added some matching ribbon (coloured to match)
I like the fact that you can have a card, a matching tag for a gift and even a bookmark as the gift itself maybe :)
