CAS486 - Let's Celebrate - I made a birthday card.
To make the butterfly, I die cut it from thick card stock, then placed it on a warm grill on top of a layer of non-stick craft mat then parchment paper. I sprinkled it with embossing powders. I think I used some Frantage Shabby Blue, aqua or turquoise, white, and platinum but I did not make a note of it. Once they had melted, I added gold tinsel glitter and micro beads on top. The melted embossing powders holds the glitter in place. To finish it off, I melted UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) on top.
I kept the card very CAS with just a stitched die cut layer popped up on fun foam on the card base and a few sequins for embellishment.
I was originally going to do the sentiment in a matching aqua colour (ColorBox Robin's Egg with clear embossing powder), but after I'd stamped it in the Robin's Egg, I decided I wanted a contrasting colour so added platinum embossing powder instead.
