Kind Words

Hello friends, thanks so much for stopping by.  I love a good sentiment on a card and am always on the look out for new ones.  The one I have used here is from an older Collection from Quick Quotes Scrapbook Company - and I have to admit has been sitting in my stash for some time (head hung in shame)  I am sure you know what it is like - but what fun to rediscover things when you start sorting - and that is all I will say about that! LOL!

'Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless' - Mother Teresa

The card front has been created by using two strips of Kaisercraft patterned paper that were left over from other projects, they have been adhered to a piece of card board and cut/embossed using Spellbinders Nestabilities Scored and Pierced Rectangles Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine, then popped up onto a pre-cut slightly larger white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L 3D Foam Squares. 

Authentique Paper patterned paper has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Victorian Medallion One Etched Dies and adhered to the centre of the card front using liquid glue.  Next the sentiment has been adhered to the centre of the Medallion.

The butterfly has been created by cut/emboss the Butterfly Body using Kaisercraft patterned paper and the Shapeabilities Layered Monarch Etched Dies - Exclusive, this is followed by the Butterfly Wing Layer 3 n black card stock.  Adhere the Wing layer over the patterned Body Layer using glue.  Colour the body using black marker.  Add liquid glitter to the wings and allow to dry.

Pop up the butterfly on the top right portion of the sentiment panel with the body overlapping onto the panel and the wings a popped up onto the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L 3D Foam Squares - glue the body portion.   Want2Scrap 250 Count White Pearls have been added to each corner.
