Make It Crafty Clean & Simple

Hello Bloggers

I'm sharing one of my favourite styles of card today, CAS and using the super sweet Vixie Digi Stamp from Make It Crafty who are currently having a DT Call for a new CAS Design Team

I started by taking Vixie into Word and perching her on top of my sentiment, which I boxed, and printed it all off onto white card stock.
I coloured her with my Pro Markers, there is a list of the colours I used below, and added Wink of Stella Glitter Clear pen to the detail in her wings.
I used my usual 6x6" square white card blank and a piece of butterfly printed paper from the Forever In Time 'Frolic' paper pad, slightly smaller than the card front. I cut the card with my coloured image on into a square measuring 5.5" with the image in the bottom right corner, then cut a piece of card 2mm bigger on each side. Before mounting the image I coloured the edge of the card in the same green as her dress, then layered everything up onto the card front.
For the finishing detail I used the smallest XCut Butterfly punch and punched out 7 teeny butterflies, colouring them in matching colours to my image and using a wet glue I stuck them down with their wings bent upwards slightly ........
....... and that's it
