I saw three challenges at Splitcoaststampers that I combined to create this Best of Butterflies hope card – a color challenge, a sketch challenge and a technique challenge. These challenges inspired my color selection, the layout and the ribbon loops on this card. And I used the new totally clear Designer Typeset stamp set to stamp hope. It’s so easy with this new stamp set to create what ever message you would like.
Rather than adding the loops under the stamped panel, I decided to trim them to a point and attach them to the top of the panel for a little different look. Can you see the glitter I added to the butterfly wings. A little touch of 2-way glue with a sprinkle of Dazzling Diamonds glitter goes a long way to adding a little something special.
