While I was playing with the new release stamps from Papertrey Ink over the last week, I decided to pull out Butterfly Dreams and Background Basics: Diamonds to create a card that I would be able to share before the release.
I stamped my rustic cream cardstock with the pattern from BB: Diamonds first. I didn't worry about making sure the stamp was perfectly inked up because I knew I was going to be inking up the edges and was going for more of a vintage feel. I added a piece of sweet blush polka dot patterned paper, sponged ink around the edges and stitched my layers. Then, I wrapped the crocheted lace around the patterned paper and adhered it to my card. I cut my rectangle for my sentiment and butterfly image and inked the edges. Then, I die cut, stamped and colored my butterfly image. I sponged ink around the edges of my die cut before adhering it with foam adhesive.
It's hard to believe it's already the big release day for Papertrey Ink. Isn't this year just flying by?! I probably won't make it to the release party tonight as it's my little girl's birthday today and I would rather spend the day spoiling her. *wink*
Have fun at the party!!
