Golden Butterflies (featured stamper Ink-E)

Today's Featured Stamper on SCS is Ink-E. Fun gallery....I LOVE the layout and butterflies on THIS CARD here. Beautiful card, Emily. Congrats on being today's FS!

I kept the same butterfly theme and layout as Emily. I added some layers, changed the colors to Gold, and used my Butterfly Happiness set from There She Goes.

Oh, by the way....did you know that every Sunday on Jessica Knutsen's blog there's a card giveaway where you can win one of the cards made by her design team? Here's the link to this week's post. Check it out!

I stamped the butterflies in Versafine Black Onyx onto the white CS. Then I stamped three more of them onto PTI's metallic gold CS in Versamark, heat embossed them in black embossing powder, cut them out, and popped them up on dimensionals over the ones on the white CS. I ran a strip of red line tape (sticky strip) on the black CS and sprinkled on some Pot of Gold glitter from Art Institute Glitter...this stuff is incredibly sparkly. I love it! The black and white panel with the brads is also up on dimensionals, and then the oval sentiment is up on dimensionals over that. Do I love dimensionals or what??

The inside of the card has another white panel matted with black, and I stamped another butterfly down in the lower left corner. Behind the butterfly, I made a butterfly trail with a black marker and the template from my SU mat pack.
