Wedding Wishes With Kara

Hey Guys! Kara here with yet another project featuring the Large Butterfly Frame Die. It's such a versatile die and I haven't tired of exploring all of the many ways it can be used. This time I've stamped and colored on the die cut as well as added a drop shadow.

It's no secret that I love a lot of white space, but there has to be an element that pops and makes it interesting. On this card it's the colored images. I die cut the butterfly frame first from white cardstock. I then stamped the Modern Anemones strategically on the die cut. I colored the flowers and leaves with Copic markers {R24, R29, R59, YG61, YG63, YG67} and coated them with clear Wink Of Stella. A little bit of shimmer is in order for a wedding card!

I wanted to add a drop shadow to the butterflies, but not to the outer frame. I die cut the butterfly frame from black cardstock and then carefully snipped the frame off. What I was left with was just the five connected butterflies. I was able to off set them slightly behind the white frame and adhere it with some tiny glue dots.

I stamped the Wedding Wishes sentiment, from Modern Peonies, in the center. I adhered the frame to a white card base using dimensional adhesive.

A simple yet striking wedding design. I hope my friends will love it. They are getting married in September.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
