Leaving Baroque Butterflies.

I was asked to make a card for a colleague that's leaving work next week. My spec - make it pink, well I wouldn’t have a problem with that would I … and as she’s on reception and knows everyone, I had to create a lot of signing space …


Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Flight of the Butterfly
Cardstock: Orchid Opulence, Pixie Pink, Pink Passion, Whisper White
Mediums- Versomark, Orchid Opulence, Pixie Pink, Pink Passion, Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa
Embellishments: Circle fire rhinestone brads and Filigree designer brads, 1/2” Pretty in pink striped grosgrain, 5/8” Regal Rose grosgrain, 3/8” pretty in pink taffeta ribbon, plus various others from stash.
Tools: Butterfly punch, Paper piercer, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Paper cutter and scorer, Nestability, Snail adhesive, silicon glue.


Each of the backing sheets has its own signing sheet which has been sent around the departments and will be adhered to the card when complete, that way the actual card doesn’t get grubby.  I’ve also stamped and punched out lots of colour coordinated butterflies to adhere to the back pages when complete.


The girls on reception loved it, I hope the recipient loves it just as much!
