Today I’m sharing a card crafted with Penny Black supplies from the latest Bring on the Happy release.
To being, I applied a combination of Distress Inks to the 40-389 Bramble stamp and stamped onto white cardstock. I then cut out the hello sentiment with the 51-104 Hello word die from the stamped panel, carefully preserving the tiny pieces from the insides of the letters. I flipped the panel over and taped the cut to hold in those pieces while I removed the hello. I cut the hello several more times out of white cardstock and gold foil, adhering them together and then adhering the sentiment into the stamped card panel. In the long run, I probably could have more simply adhered the hello die cut onto the stamped panel without cutting it out of the panel, but I wanted to explore that other approach first. (Besides I tend to try the most complicated solutions sometimes!)
I cut the butterflies with the 51-132 Flights of Fancy set out of white cardstock and gold foil, adhering them for depth.
