In Flight--CBC20

This card is quick and easy to make. The dots around everything takes sometime but well worth the affect you get.
This is a challenge card for Chrissy's Blog, she does a Belli challenge weekly, go and give it a try. This week is to use Vellum or Mulberry Paper on your project. I chose to use the Vellum. I embossed my Butterfly on Vellum with black embossing powder and colored in the back with an orange gel pen. You could also use a marker for this. Then I trimmed out the butterfly and used some double sided tape and attached him to my scalloped circle.
Supplies needed:
Whisper White, Basic Black and Only Orange card stock
White Craft Ink Pad
Orange, White and Black Gel Pens ( could also use our SU Markers for this)
Card stock Vellum
Scalloped Circle Punch
Corner Rounder Punch
Touch of Nature Stamp set and Friendship Blooms

Cut basic card from Whisper White. 4 1/4 x 11 fold in half.
Cut Basic Black at 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and stamp images on with Craft white ink. Let dry then add to front of basic card. Add white dots with Gel pen all around the edges.
Cut another piece of black at 4 1/4 x 1 1/4 add white dots with gel pen. Stamp verse on left hand side.
Only Orange cut at 4 1/4 x 1 3/4. With a corner rounder punch, punch along long edge all across. Add dots with black gel pen. Mount black piece to this and mount to card about an inch from the bottom. Add white gel pen dots around top and bottom of this piece.
Punch an orange scalloped circle and add black dots with gel pen to each scallop. Center the Vellum butterfly in the middle with some double sided tape.
For butterfly, stamp on card stock vellum with versamark, add black embossing powder, heat set. Cut around. Add just the double sided tape to the body of the butterfly so you can bend the wings and he looks like he is in flight.
Hope you enjoy today's project.
