Butterfly Birthday

IMGP1900-2

This is a birthday card for Aunt that is turning 80.  I wanted something really special.  This card was called a stand up joy fold.

The base of this card is Lagoon Mica Metallic.  The brown layer is also from the Mica Metallic line and is Bronze Mica Metallic.

Nearly all the rest of the card is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.  I love making my own designer paper.  I just recently bought a Misti stamp tool.  It is fantastic.  It lines everything up and if the image does not come out perfect, it is aligned so that you can restamp until it looks good.  I didn’t really like these Cover-A-Card background stamps from Impression Obsession because I could never get a good stamped image.  Now I can use the Misti and keep reinking and stamping until it looks good.

The top cut out layer on the butterflies is  Yummy Iridescent vellum.
