Well, I think I am really close to the deadline, but I am y hoping to slide in with a second NBUS card for Darnell's Seventh NBUS Challenge...(Never Before Used Stuff).
My card is a fairly easy one. Once each summer I get together with my neighbour and make cards. We each bring doubles of 4 or 5 card kits. We finished up early and she let me borrow a couple of her dies to run off some new to me diecuts.
My card today was made with one of those diecuts. I made 5 cards the same but was silly enough to forget to photograph a group shot! I am not sure the name of the manufacturer as she gave me the die from her magnetic sheet storage system. I have a feeling that it may be a Penny Black...
I simply cut and scored a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. I then ran the precut card through my big shot with the Thank You die as level as I could guess! I placed a snippet of Momento inky looking card (from Walmart) behind the opening that the die had cut away, gluing it carefully around the edges of the swirls cut into the white card front.
I coloured the Thank You with a back sharpie pen and inlaid it back into the cut out portion of the card front. I went over the Thank You script with some stardust stickles and added a bit on the swirls of Momento inky background.
The butterflies were cut with a Stampin' Up Beautiful Wings thinlet die. They are embossed with different patterns...I love that die! I used a couple of black antennae from a Memory Box butterfly die and then threw a diamond on each butterfly and added quick swish of stardust stickles to each set of wings.
I was lucky enough to have a pink coloured envelope and stamped a couple of couple of random butterflies and a Stampin' Up dragonfly in the bottom corner.There is a butterfly on the back flap of the envelope as well.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
