With God All Things Are Possible

Hi Friends!

Happy Wednesday!  My Heartfelt Creations post this week is just for fun, no particular collection that I'm focusing on, I just wanted to make a bright and Spring inspired card!  I decided that must mean flowers and butterflies!!

I used the butterflies from the Butterfly Medley Collection.  Because they come in a group of 7 all on one stamp, I was able to quickly stamp all the butterflies together at one time.  I then used a quick coloring technique (stipple brush and inks) to "roughly" add color to them and then glammed them all up with Icicle Stickes!  Next I selected a card front from the Butterfly Medley paper pad and die cut out Butterfly "holes" with the coordinating die towards the upper left of the panel.

I turned the die cut panel over and added a square of acetate (AKA discarded packaging material) to the back, over the negative space, to help strengthen the panel so it wouldn't cave in in-between the cut outs. 

Afterwards, I turned the panel back over and sponged on some Purple Viva Decor 3-D stamp paint along the edges of the panel and stamped my sentiment. 

Next I aligned the stamped and colored butterflies under the corresponding die cut holes and adhered the two panels together with 1/8" foam tape separating the two.  Here is where adding that acetate backing to the back of the panel makes a difference!
To finish the card, I stamped and die cut out the small flower blooms from the Birds and Blooms Collection and sponged on more of the Purple 3-D Stamp Paint.  I stamped and die cut a few leafy branches from the Classic Leaf dies (trimming them as needed) and inserted them under the purple blooms.  I added silver German Glass Glitter to the flower centers for the final touch.
