Friday already and my first post of the week - Mr MOJO has been on holiday this week . On Wednesday I popped into my local craft store looking for a flower stamp - not just the outline but a solid flower as I wanted to do some shadow stamping - I came away with a cute cat stamp - yesterday afternoon I stamped and coloured this cat 11 times with different products and I didn't like any of them. I think maybe I have to put the stamp away for a long time and then come back to it.
This morning I feel a bit more positive and made this card using some lovely embossed card and this pretty bag - I'm not which company makes them but I bought a pack of 4 from a shop in New Zealand .
Lets Craft and Create - Embossing wet or dry - I did both - when I stamped the sentiment with 'Brilliance starlite silver ' it was a bit pale so I added silver embossing powder .

The gifts and sentiment are all part of the same digital image from Handmade Harbour. Red coloured pencil -red stripey washi tape - I used a magazine freebie template to cut the fancy edge.

I only bought one sheet of this paper - I should have bought more - I love the green /chocolate combo - It's called 'Stripes 'from the Christmas collection at Queen and Co. I've added a felt square and circle in white and chocolate.

It's not often I get to post twice in one day but the weather has been too hot today to do anything else.

This was a labour of love . I don't have a cuttlebug or template to make this card - I had to start from scratch with a basic butterfly shape - I used my fancy scissors to shape the bottom wings and added a slight curve to the top wings . I have covered the cardstock with the patterned paper and then cut out two smaller butterflies . Using a regular holepunch I did a few holes on one butterfly then place the second one behind so the colours would show through. Try it for yourself using the template above -make sure the top of the wings are on the fold of your card.
