Have a special day

Hello again! I know you must be really surprised that I am so busy with my crafting activities. I just happened to maximise my day off since I have nothing much else to do! he he Love the feeling I must say.

So anyways, this card too features another Vellum butterfly that was embossed in gold and coloured in with Copics.. I like the whole stained glass effect it has. Will be using this technique more often;-) Please note that all the stamps are by Hero Arts.

The center panel was cut using my Cuttlebug and then stamped with the 'Woodgrain' background stamp. I also used another smaller circle to die cut the hole in the middle.

I then used a Stampa-ma-jig and added the sentiment right onto the center of the second die cut. I mounted one on top of the other using dimensional adhesive and added the Hero arts gems.
This whole panel I adhered to a blue textured cardstock that was stamped with the 'Dot flourishes' stamp set from Hero arts in white ink. Love how it adds to the card without overpowering it.

I masked out a area in the middle with the 3x3 piece of paper and stamped the 'Friendship' background stamp and then added a final butterfly:-)

Thank you for dropping by today:-)

Happy stamping, and a happy monday to you all!
