The last of my Gumnut Baby cards for a while. Suffering from cuteness overload.

This may be a bit dark for your average baby card, but I felt the murky greens in the watercolour background really spoke of the Australian bush. More Australiana cards to follow. I combined the ‘Gum Leaves Branch’ UC1800 from Uniquely Creative stamp with the ‘Nuttybub in a Birdsnest’ E236 from Stamp World. I gold embossed the wording and used dots of ‘Hot Cocoa’ Liquid Pearls over the gumnuts to make them stand out.

butterfly formation 012My 2nd card using my new Memory Box die # 99145 Reverse Butterfly Collage. The wording is “Happiness is When” 2440C by Stamp-it.

Cut out the die in white matt card. Place a larger piece of card beneath which has been coloured with Dylusion ink sprays (Lemon Zest, Squeezed Orange and Postbox Red) leaving a border of the coloured card showing around it . Mount this onto folded black backing card.

Cut out butterfly pattern again on scrap of white matt card. It doesn’t have to be a very big piece of card as you don’t want the whole pattern, only a small section of it. I chose the middle-left part to highlight as there was space there to add a wording. Use texters directly onto rubber stamp to colour wording (so all the words can be different colours). Cut your chosen section to desired size and matt onto piece of black card. Magic Mount onto card front, lining up with butterfly images beneath. Fix adhesive rhinestones of pink and orange in place for butterfly heads.butterfly formation 013
