poppystamps Powell & Corden Butterflies and Egg Swoosh Easter…

Just a note…a pretty gold embossed butterfly on my first card today.  I die cut a white card-stock panel with the Rectangle Basic die set, then die cut the Corden Butterfly die in the panel.

I die cut the Powell Butterfly die, inked it and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.  I only glued it to the card base in the very center so the wings can be lifted and shaped a little.

I stamped and embossed the sentiment…layered the panel onto a Memory Box Lagoon A2 notecard and glued on a few 4 mm gold sequins.

An easy CAS card that lets the gold make the statement!

Next card…

For this Happy Easter card I die cut the Egg Swoosh die in metallic gold card-stock, adhered it to the white panel that I die cut with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics die set and stamped happy easter in mint green ink.

I die cut and colored the Stitched Eggs with Distress inks and the mini ink blending tools. Then glued them on.

I mounted the white panel to the card with a piece of craft foam that I die cut with the same Rectangle Basics die set.  I just use ATG tape on both sides to adhere to the panel and then to the Memory Box A2 notecard.

Another CAS (clean and simple) card ready for the next holiday!

  1. Beautiful! I’m partial to the butterfly, as well. The very soft colors combined with that pop of gold is such an eye catcher! Love them both, though…!

  2. Ooooh, love the gold and the beautiful simplicity and that awesome minty green on your second card that reminds me of my stamp room which I haven’t visited for several days. Darn sunny weather (JK, love it). Got all kinds of running around to do today, so no stamping… I’m getting antsy for it, especially when I see inspiration like this.

  3. two gorgeous cards pam! wow, the gold is so elegant on the first one and i love the sequins. the second one is so bright with those beautiful and colourful eggs and i love the soft green sentiment – i need that one. oh, but when i check your inlinkz listing, i realize i have it and not yet used it. lol. maybe i don’t need any more supplies.

  4. Stunning! I really love the gold butterfly with the blue under it peeking through. The sequins are a perfect touch with the sentiment. Thanks for playing along with us at AAA Cards!

  5. These are such stunning impeccably made cards, Pam! Those colored Easter eggs are divine, but it’s that beautiful teal and gold butterfly card that took my breath away! This is a winner in my book!! Thanks so much for joining in my NBUS Challenge #11! Hugs, Darnell
