This week's Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Design is Things With Wings. If you haven't already heard, my Gypsy got very sick. I have a replacement in process, but had to find a way to create my projects without her for a while. I dusted off my Cricut Imagine and made this card.
I even tried Cricut Craft Room!! I do like that I can put the images where I want them on my mat. I also like that I can separate an image into layers and delete the pieces I don't need.
I don't really know why the brown ink stained the top of my paper or why the butterflies did not cut out.
I trimmed the butterflies. I trimmed the border off of one of them. I inked both of them with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.
I cut the card in half and adhered the first butterfly to the front. I cut apart the banner and pop-dotted them across the top corner. I bent up the wings of the butterfly and pop-dotted the body on top of the first butterfly.
I used turquoise Martha Stewart glitter glue on the butterfly wings and fire opal on the body and for the spots. I stamped "flutter" on the bottom corner of the card.
I added "soar!" in tiny alphabet stickers to the banner flags. I adhered twine across the top of the banner and glued twine knots to the corners of the banner flags.
Here is a side view of the butterfly layers.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you create a project with wings and link up with us at Frosted Designs this week!!
