I am really honored to be a guest designer for Crafting By Designs this month. The challenge is my favorite--Anything Goes--and it is always interesting to see what happens when the sky is the limit and creative juices start to flow. Isn't it fun to see what others come up with, too? Pop on over to the website and enter your inspired work there.
The card I am showing you today was inspired by a favorite combination of mine, which is the very regal gold and silver color scheme.
Starting out with white cardstock, a silver paper was added. It was not quite pizzazzy enough, so I sprayed it with some silver glitter mist. A 1 1/2 inch wide ribbon is run horizontally across the middle of the card, then on top of that is a gold die cut piece. The sentiment is printed from my computer, then punched out. A silver frame is added to the sentiment, which is attached with brads.
One of the most fun things to work with in die cutting is aluminum foil. After experimenting, what works best for me is four layers of foil. It gives a nice finished piece that is bendable, yet strong. This was what was used for the butterfly. Gold liquid pearls also adorn the body of the butterfly.
Here is the card:

- Anna Griffin Cuttlebug Flourish Medallion Die
