Beautiful Day

It's another beautiful summer day and I have a colorful butterfly card to share with you that I created with lots of Fun Stampers Journey goodies. 

I started out creating a basic A2 size card base with Whip Cream Cardstock and then I ran it through the Journey Grand to emboss it with the new Beach Towel embossing folder. Next, I created a frame for my card using the Journey Rectangle dies set and some bright and sunny Orange Creamsicle Cardstock. 

Then I created a fun scene of butterflies flying through the clouds adhering them with Journey Foam Squares to give the accents dimension. 

To give my butterflies the appearance of movement, I added some Black Licorice Journey Twine behind them. My trick to attaching the twine is to not actually attach it at all. Yep! I simply unroll a little of the twine and place it on the card. 

Then I tucked part of the twine behind my clouds before I attached the butterflies over the twine. So...there's actually no adhesive on the twine itself! 

For a bit of sunshiny sparkle, I sprinkled the card with some pretty sequins.

Finally, I also made a matching envelope with a piece of the new Journey Basics Bright Paper Pack! 

Hope you enjoy a fun sunshiny summer day!

Love it! Awesome colors, lots of wonderful texture and shine! Plus I love clouds and stripes, so it's perfect in my book! Thanks so much for sharing how you adhered the twine, too!
