CAS, Guest Designer, Handmade Cards

Guest Designer at Addicted to CAS! 

I’m thrilled to be this week’s guest designer at Addicted to CAS!

This week’s competition code word is ‘FLY’. So many possibilities with this word! Here’s what I came up with, I hope you like it:

lil inker stitched butterflies

I started this card by stamping on white card an image from the MFT Distressed Patterns stamp set several times with a rainbow of distress ink colours.

I die cut from vellum a large butterfly from the Lil’Inker Stitched Butterflies die set. I added some Wink of Stella glitter to the butterfly. I also die cut a smaller butterfly from silver glitter paper. I layered these on top of each other, securing with some liquid glue. I added a small adhesive gem on top. I attached this to the card, over the rainbow distressed pattern. I then ran this through my card to add the stitched flying line that comes with the set. Such a fun detail.

I chose a sentiment from the Altenew Birthday Greeting stamp set, stamping in black ink. I then added some Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins around the sentiment.

I attached everything to an A6 card front, then finished the card by rounded the bottom right corner to soften that edge. 

I hope you have as much fun with this challenge as I did. Have a great day!
