Card Inspiration With Butterfly Kisses


Inspirational Cards featuring Blossoms and Butterfly Kisses by Rhonda Van Ginkel

"Be Grateful Card"

It's Rhonda here today to share with you a few cards that I created featuring the very pretty Butterfly Kisses collection along with some Blossom accents. For my first card, I selected the Blush Pink Pansy Blossom to feature and anchored it on the Picture This die cut.

I prepared the base of my card with some stenciled hearts using the Lots of Love Stickable Stencil with Sugar Glitter Paste. The effect is pretty and soft. I sprinkled drops of Bronze, Sugar and Tutu Glimmer Spray on top, then set aside to dry.

Once dry, I accented the bottom of the card with a touch of the Filagree Silver Foil Transfer. The "Petals" background paper that I chose for the base of my card is such a pretty rustic contrast to the florals, I wanted to showcase that contrast a bit.

For the sentiment you can see that I selected the Be Grateful chipboard frame. I re-arranged it and backed it with a bit of pretty pink paper which I stamped on using the To The Point stamp.

"Make Your Dreams Happen" Card

For my next card, I wanted to use our new "Birds of A Feather" stamp set, as I just loved the owl. I thought it would make an appropriate graduation or teacher's thank you card. I stamped him and then used some watercolor pencils to softly color him.

Once I started playing with the theme here, I created a nest for him and a bit of bedding using pieces from a Blossom.

The other part of the Blossom, you will find as the owl's wing. First, I layered the three petals on one another in a staggered way, then adhered them to one another and trimmed to shape. Next, I added a light coating of Gesso on them and let dry. Last, I stamped on top, then attached with foam squares.

A touch of silver and florals is added with a small square from the Foil Vellum Paper, tucked in behind the nest.
