Wishing my mother in law a very happy 80th birthday today. She loves butterflies so I used the pretty butterfly paper as the base for this card. The Large Number Framelits are so handy to have it the stash for those milestone birthdays aren't they. I cut these numbers from the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper - my favourite.
Tips and Techniques: The Stitched Shape framelits are just so versatile. I love how the stitched border around the shape just adds a lovely finishing touch to the layer. With a plain oval I'd probably add a matting layer with another colour, but with the stitched edge the oval works well on its own. I go through a ton of glue dots - they're really useful for adding elements like the word and butterfly and also the numbers in this card Use a paper piercer to take one off the roll and position it. They roll nicely if you need a skinnier adhesive. The new doilies have a white side and a vanilla side - so you can choose the shading that works best with your project. I've used the vanilla on this card. The little butterfly and the word love are both cut with the Sunshine Wishes framelits.
Have a wonderful weekend. I'm looking forward to welcoming our camper back home this afternoon. (Not so much looking forward to the mountain of washing from the suitcase! Glad our washing machine is back working again.)
