My friend likes crafty cards and there's not a lot of crafting in this design, but I think she'll like the butterflies. I layered two of the Memory Box Waltzing Butterflies and glued onto a Neenah 110 lb card base. The Power Poppy Soothing Sympathy sentiment was stamped in SU's Taken With Teal.
The second card has a touch more going on, but still very simple seeing as how I pulled out some leftover card parts for it -- an uninspiring brayered ink panel and three white "get well" sentiments.
Let's see if I can make it sound as easy as it really was:
- Cut white panel 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
- Position Memory Box Florina Corner and Impression Obsession Get Well Soon dies on panel. Run through die cutting machine.
- Glue negative die cut panel to brayered background.
- Glue positive die cuts into negative space. Layer two more Get Well Soon sentiments.
- Glue assembled panel onto A2 card front.
I added two little butterflies from the Impression Obsession Butterfly Set and sparkled them up with Stickles Stardust glitter glue. All done!
I don't know how much of the eclipse you saw in your area, but here the sun got down to a little sliver. It's amazing how much light that little sliver puts out. It was an unusual sort of light, not at all the same as the sun going behind a cloud. Imagine how scary it must have been for folks in earlier days. The sky darkens, the temperature drops, the breeze goes still. It's pretty amazing when you think how the moon revolves around the earth, the earth rotates and revolves around the sun, and even with all that action going on everything still lines up for an eclipse. Wow.
Wishing you all good health and happiness. Have a wonderful day!
