Spring is the theme of the March/April challenge at ScrapBerry’s, and the design
team has been busy creating projects to inspire you as you join along.
Be sure to stop on over at the ScrapBerry's blog for all the challenge details
and to be inspired by the rest of the design team creations HERE.
One of my favorite spring holidays is Mother's Day. I'm blessed to have a wonderful mother and created this card to help celebrate this special day with her. The sweet sentiment from the Cherished Jewel collection Romance & Tiaras Tag page is just perfect for this card.
FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for ScrapBerry's. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
Tips and Techniques
The cluster is created with a Scrapberry's Pink Gardenia paired with delightful resin flowers and a sweet flair button. I've been trying to use something old from my stash on each project I create and for this card it's a metal butterfly. I brushed it with gesso then added the delightful color with Scrapberry's Pink Ink Pad. I spritzed it with a fixative to keep the gorgeous color from rubbing off. Prills are adhered to the center to create dimension for the body.
I enjoy repeating patterns, and the die cut and printed leaves repeat the shape of the butterfly. The crystal swirl is cut from the Wedding 1 set.
I've layered a couple sheets from the 6x6" Cherished Jewel collection, distressing the edges and punching the side edge of the floral sheet. The Crystal Sticker from the Floral Embroidery set pairs so perfectly with these gorgeous papers and the polymer Column is a great fit as well. I spattered some white ink across the card for a touch of mixed media.
