This card is made with the Butterfly Medallion stamp called Dancing Wings from Holly Berry House Stamps. It was stamped on several different colors of green cardstock and heat embossed with an unknown light green embossing powder. The bottom layer was cut out about 1/4" from the embossed edges. The rest of the layers are cut as close as possible to the embossing without cutting into it. If you get too close, the embossing will peel off easily from the cardstock. Don't ask me how I know this! lol
Next, the Magic Scraps glitter was applied with a Zig glue pen. I know it may be easier to do with Stickles, but I have an extensive collection of glitter colors that will probably take me forever to use. The layering is done with the help of foam adhesives. This is one of the simplier medallions, so there are only four layers on this particular one. The last layer is stamped on vellum for some more added interest. Wire was used for the antennae.
The size of this image led to my using an oval mat that I cut with a Fiskars oval cutter to help it stand out better. The green cardstock in the background has a gorgeous shimmery shine to it. This was another ebay score. The gold is made by DeNami and the rick rak is from some of my mom's sewing stash. The background paper is from my stash as is the green rhinestones. Instead of adding another layer to the card, a gold paint pen was added to the edges of the DP. I believe the ribbon is by May Arts and the butterfly charm is from my stash.
I got another order from Debi, so I need to finish off my cards for OWH so I can start to work on hers. I have some new stamps and techniques to try out, so I need to get back to work!
