Cardmaking

Wing it!

Happy Friday! I hope you are having a good week and ready for the weekend. I’m here today to share the new challenge starting at the Daring Cardmakers Challenge.

The theme is “Wing It!” and you can use anything with wings on your cards this week – insects, birds, fairies or even planes!

I recently participated in a die cut swap organised by a crafty You Tuber. I got a beautiful selection including a few pretty butterflies so I decided to use one of them for today’s card. The die cut is a butterfly with one wing a solid shape and the other a detailed pattern.

I started by masking off the fancy side with a post it and stamping the solid side with a script stamp in blueprint skecth distress oxide ink. Then I blended the same ink onto the fancy side. To create the base I cut three mats, two in a dark navy and one in white. I stamped the same script around the outer edge of the white card and then layered them up. I added a sentiment “with love” from a Clearly Besotted stamp set and heat embossed this in white. I added the butterfly with some 3d pads and then finished off with a few nuvo jewel drops in steel blue.

I hope you like my card and that you will hop over and join in with your cards with wings on! Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope to see you again soon!
