Embossed Copper Flashing-Lovely Lace Embossing Folder
Kinda Eclectic-Just Because!

Happy Mother's Day Butterfly-Nacho Average Color Challenge #140

Our challenge colors this week over at the Nacho Average site are Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe and Bermuda Bay.

Here's my contribution:

Butterfly Thinlits 003

For this card, I started by inking the inside (raised side) of the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, inserting a piece of Whisper White card stock and then running it through the Big Shot.  By inking the raised side of the embossing folder, the embossed image stays white while the background picks up the color. 

I used the Butterfly Thinlits die to cut the butterfly out of Bermuda Bay card stock.  To help release the cut butterfly from the thinlit, I added a piece of waxed paper to the Big Shot "sandwich" (placed in between the card stock and the thinlit). 

Butterfly Thinlits 002

The butterfly is also cut out of the wax paper which I added to the top of my Bermuda Bay butterfly for a little extra pop of interest.
