I have had a flat period where my mojo has departed, so any cards I have made have been variations on previous ones... not good. So last night I went to Pinterest and looked at the cards I have pinned from there, and today I flew. This card is a CASE of a CASE I have discovered, after following the pin to its source.
I took the hexagonal shapes, (cut from some card from a DCWV Metallic Stack) but cut more of them, and positioned them slightly apart.
I positioned the sentiment (a retired stamp from The Crafts Meow) differently, embossed it, and added an off-cut and pearls underneath it, that was not on the original.
The butterfly (a retired image form Layers of Color) was stamped on glossy purple paper and embossed with lavender ep.
The card stock that I used as the base is a pale gray card that is made from recycled material, and it has a fine, slightly darker fleck in it - something a bit different that adds interest to the card.
Another off-cut was used at the bottom of the inside of the card, and another butterfly stamped in Memento Lulu Lavender ink
This butterfly was stamped on the facing page of the insert, and I have shown it at this size to show the wonderful detail it has.
