Oldie but a Goodie



I made this a while ago. Although I've been working on lots of projects, I can't show any of them to you yet!


This card was fun to make. I started out using a piece of cold laminate (that is like a heavy transparency with one side sticky). and stamping the butterfly image on the non sticky side using StazOn. Then, after that dried, I took red, yellow and white Pearl Ex powders (Stampin' Up) and brushed them on the sticky side until there was no more stickiness left. I adheared this to a piece of white cardstock and then adheard that to a thin black mat. The rest of the card is pretty straight forward. The leaves are from Petal Prints (Stampin' Up) and stamped with Versamark on the Ruby Red cardstock. To cut the scallops, I drew a straight line with a pencil on the back of the cardstock and then used that as a guide while cutting. It's the only way I've been successful at getting the scallops straight. All other products used here are from Stampin' Up.
I hope to be able to load up some new projects soon.
Thanks for visiting.

For those wondering, like you Chris, I got the cold laminate from Austrailia - yup, believe it or not! A wonderful friend from SCS Jean sent me some. Can you imagine how excited I was!!!

I've not been able to find any in Can. yet.
