Red & Pink ~ for my Grandma Edie

As promised from my post on October 31st I created a card with a Red & Pink color combination, which my Grandma Edie loves! So, I started out with die-cut butterflies cut from Pink Pirouette cardstock, then layered them on top of Real Red Cardstock! Using the 3/16" Corner Rounder punch on the Real Red Cardstock, I rounded the corners to coordinate with the roundness of the butterfly wings and stamped the Medallion Background Stamp in Real Red Ink on the cardstock. Then I added the sentiment - which is from the Chit Chat Rub-ons (pg. 177), which come in Chocolate Chip and Whisper White ~ I used the White. The Basic Black Card base helps to make the butterfly stand out a more - it's a bold look, which I like! The finishing touch was a layer of Raspberry Tart DSP! I also ran both layers of the butterfly through the Big Shot with the Backgrounds 1 Texturz Plate ~ dots are so fun! The Texturz Plates are a fantastic way to add texture and dimension to your die-cut images!
