Clearly For You

Again using the gorgeous "Clearly for You" stamp set we created this card at July's "Making Gifts and Cards" Class.

The butterfly was die cut using the Big Shot Machine with the "Beautiful Butterflies" Bigz die which get sooooo much use, I mean, who doesn't like butterflies!

Using marker pens we inked up the "blackberry" stamp from the set using Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso and stamped onto the Butterfly then once finished we daubed around the edge in Early Espresso and used the same colour to add some "spritz" with the Spritzer Tool which I seem to be using a lot recently!

We embossed the Very Vanilla layer using the "Elegant Bouquet" Textured Embossing Folder then Spritzed with Early Espresso.  The greeting "for you" is also from the same stamp set and punched it out with the Word Window Punch, trimming one of the ends of by putting it back into the punch for a second time.  We also did this with the Espresso layer behind, this time using the new Decorative Label Punch.  We added a mix of Crystal Effects with some Baja Breeze re-inker to the centres of the flowers to finish.
