Besties Fairy Butterfly Easel Card

Happy New Year Everyone! Today I want to share with you my second January Design Team Project for My Besties Meet at the Scrappers Corner. For my project, I created this whimsical Besties Fairy Butterfly Easel Card.


For my card I used the Gorgeous Bestie digital stamp by Sherri Baldy called Twin Fairies that you can find here: http://www.mybestiesshop.com/store/p2435/Twin_Fairies_Bestie_digi_stamp_.html.

To create my card, first I sized and printed out the Bestie digital stamp onto plain white card stock. I then colored the image with Copics and Prismacolor Premier Pencils. Once I was done coloring the image, I then used a clear glitter pen to accent the wings and flowers on the fairies. After the glitter was dry, I fussy cut out the digital stamp and set it aside.

Next I created my butterfly card base. To do this I just selected a butterfly image from the Cricut Design Space Library and duplicated the image. I then layered and welded the images together, added score lines, and then duplicated a third detailed layer for the front of the easel card. I then added 3 more butterfly shadow images and sized them to accent the edges of my card. Once I was happy with my design, I then cut out all of the pattern pieces with my Explore in glitter, plain, and patterned card stock.

Next I inked and chalked all of the paper edges to add dimension and shape. I then used Tim Holtz distress ink to shade each of the small shadow layer butterflies, and used a white gel pen to add all the tiny details to their wings. After that I assembled all of the easel card pieces and then attached my Bestie digi stamp onto the front of the card with foam tape for some added dimension. I then used my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders dies in my Big Shot to cut out my sentiment, and sentiment frame. Next I inked and chalked them, and then attached the sentiment to the bottom of my easel card. To finish I added flowers, rhinestones, glitter stems, and sequins to embellish my card.

I hope that you enjoy my card, and I invite you to join in our current challenge over at My Besties Meet at the Scrappers Corner Challenge Blog that you can find here: http://meetatthescrapperscorner.blogspot.com/.  Don't forget that our challenges are always anything goes using a Bestie image.
