Penny Black: Butterfly Love Card

Penny Black Butterfly Love Card by Maria Byrd |

Butterfly Love Card for Valentine's Day has lots of hearts and sparkle! As you can tell by now, I use different brands from my stash and is fond of shiny/sparkly touches.  The sentiment is Penny Black True Love die-cut from a ruby red glitter paper and the background paper from DCWV The Far East Stack.

Center piece is cut and embossed from two consecutive sizes of Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Twenty-Eight die-cut.  Edges are daubed with Ranger Distress Ink in Forest Moss and Frayed Burlap.  Heart flowers from Penny Black All You Need stamp are stamped in Altenew Crisp Dye Inks in Frosty Pink, Puffy Heart, Rose Quartz, Soft Lilac, and Warm Sunshine.  I then brushed Wink of Stella over the blooms for some glitter shine.

Detail of Penny Black Butterfly Love Card by Maria Byrd |

Butterfly from Inkadinkado Beauty Stems set is stamped in VersaMark Watermark Clear and heat embossed in Ranger Embossing Powder Detail Gold.  I then adhered the center piece to a red patterned DCWV paper which I lightly sanded with fine grit sandpaper to distress the edges.  Four tiny hearts from Lawn Fawn Snow Day are cut from red glitter paper and glued to each corner.  Sequins from Taylored Expressions and 28 Lilac Lane are added for embellishment.  The card has an overall Asian inspired theme... now that I look at it, it reminds me of Madame Butterfly. 😊
