This card may have turned out even better than planned. I really like it but I wanted to do the stitching in white. The only white thread I had was too thick to fit through the needle on my machine so this was my next choice. Funny thing is this is the only time I ever sew! The one exception would be girl scout patches and last year I found it easier to hot glue them on. It was the only thing I found to work and I tried everything! Anyway, back to my card…I used my glitter mist again (fun!), just for the letter K. The butterflies came with glitter on them already. I also folded the wings of the butterflies for an even more 3D look which really adds to the card. They were easy to fold once I attached the pearls.

I decided with the busy patterned paper on this card that I didn’t need any embellishments. I’m glad to have a masculine card done. This was the first time I have used glitter mist and what fun!! The color I used was not near as bright as I expected but I like how fast it dries. I definately need to experiment more!

…we all scream for ice cream! I didn’t have a diecut or any kind of ice cream stamps so I had to improvize for this card. Sometimes that works and other times it doesn’t. This was one of those time when what I thought in my head was actually how it turned out! I distressed the edges of the blue with my CTMH Distresser. I used Liquid Applique to add dimension to the ice cream and embossed and sanded the lines on the cone. The blue button was a bit bright and took away from the ice cream cone so I added a yellow button sticker to the top to tone it down.

This was a fun layout and the colors worked well together. I kinda wish I had made the rhinestone circle smaller but I like the pattern. I used a Mini Dots All Around template by TheCraftersWorkshop.com. I love this little template for making circles with eyelets, brads, buttons, bling, etc. Layout was based on Scrap Sketch #120.
