My cousin's husband was killed on Monday in a senseless act of violence by a disgruntled employee. He worked for Benjamin Moore Paint in Vancouver, WA. I so feel for her. This is the card I made for her.
My card is white card stock cut and scored to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". I added a dark purple mat cut at 4 1/8" X 5 3/8" and then my patterned paper mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4". My patterned paper is from the Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper pad.
I used Elegant Edges to cut a mat at 4". The shadow was cut out of light lavendar and the shadow was cut out of dark purple. I added some Fran tage to the dark purple mat. My butterfly was cut from a new Cottage Cutz die using my eBosser. I sprayed the die cut with some pink glitter dust.
I adhered it to my die cut to my mat with some Glossy Accents. I then adhered the mats to my card base with some foam tape. My sentiment is stamped using a stamp from the WOW! embossing powder company and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. To finish I add some rhinestones to help balance out the card.
I purchased my Fran-Tage and Cottage Cutz dies from Cutters Creek.
