I love the sketch challenges they offer at Operation Write Home. Basing a card layout on a sketch always helps me get out of my ruts of repeating the same type cards. I have learned though that I have a slight problem strictly adhering to a sketch. I start out with good intentions to follow it as-is, and then it usually turns into something totally different.
This card follows the sketch's vertical and horizontal lines with an embellishment in the corner, but that's about it.
I dry embossed the bottom part of the background paper just a bit to give it some texture. Then, the white background was cut with my cricut, and I rounded the top right corner. I also cut the butterfly with my cricut. I cut two butterflies and glued them together, then bent the top one just a bit to give it some dimension. I hope it's not too much dimension for OWH, though. I then added the string and bits of paper, and stamped the sentiment.
So glad you found me! This blog is my little space where I can share bits about my life and my latest crafting projects (mostly handmade cards). My goal is to share, inspire, and to be a positive presence in the creative community.
