Here's how my card was made:


For today's card I made a nontraditional Christmas card using;
1.Dreamweaver Stencils new FJ858 Greetings Embossing Folder that I used as the base of the card.  To get the blue color I rubbed Sky Blue Brilliance from Tsukineko over the the indented side of the folder (not the raised), then embossed using Core'dinations white cardstock.
2.  I then stamped the butterfly from Stampendous' Jumbo Butterfly Trio set with Versamark on Core'dinations vellum and embossed the Shabby White Embossing Enamel
3.  Next the same butterfly was stamped on Glitter Silk paper from Core'dinations with Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink from Tsukineko and embossed with clear powder.
4.  Both were cut out using the new Butterflies Die Cut Set from Stampendous.  When using the die it cuts off the antennas, so for the vellum piece I cut around the antennas then placed the die on the butterfly with the antennas on top of the die so they wouldn't be cut.  The vellum wings were bent, glued to the sparkle paper and blue self adhesive pearls were added.
5.  The letters and leaves were then die cut using Dreamweaver Stencils new Dual Alphabet Cutting Dies DD005 and DD003 Leafy Branch from Core'dinations Glitter Silk paper.
6.  The sentiment from the Holiday Words Perfectly Clear Set using Versamark ink and emboss with  Copper Tinsel Embossing Powder, layer onto gold paper.

Made this at the last minute using Stampendous stamps Clear Set SSC1182, Dreamweaver Stencils new Embossing Folder FG675 Pine Cones and Core'dinations Chalk Core sandable paper.

So many cool details on your first card, Jamie, and your second (overachiever) is rustic ally cute!

The butterfly is beautiful. This would be a great card to send to your friends who do not celebrate Christmas - maybe change the wording but you'd still be able to send them holiday greetings.
the traditional card is pretty too.
thanks for sharing some wonderful cards.

Love both your projects! I've never used the Shabby embossing powders on an image stamped on vellum, but now I want to try it!

DogsMom said...

You have chosen such wonderful yet unusual tones for the butterfly. The blue body really pops against the more subtle background colors.
