Over at Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge, the current challenge is A for Aperture and/or Apricot.
The apricot part was easy enough, as I had a piece of apricot card left over from making my Mum's birthday card, and exactly the right size to use with this magazine freebie embossing folder. These days I mostly die cut apertures as and when I need them, but I have a few pre-cut ones left over from my cross stitching days of about 25 years ago, and I thought I would customise one of these instead.
I stamped all over the aperture panel using a butterfly and dragonfly stamps from PaperArtsy, and filled in the gaps between them with tiny stamps that I think came from Raindrops on Roses. I coloured in the stamped images with two shades of Apricot, and then assembled the card with the embossed panel behind the aperture.
The sentiment is stamped with a Polkadoodles stamp and coloured to match the remaining stamping and raised with foam pads.
I am sharing this with
