Tutorial, Sneak Peek & a Giveaway: Butterfly Aperture Card
Hi all! It's Sara here today... I'll be taking over the Crafter's Companion US blog from now until next Monday with tutorials featuring my Signature Collection!
I'm thrilled to let you know that next Tuesday, January 26th, on HSN I'll be launching Butterfly Lullaby and Love & Romance exclusively on HSN, so set mark your calendars and be sure to watch!
This is my first sneak peek of the new products I'm bringing to HSN next week, and I have got so many exciting new things planned! Make sure you check in here every day leading up to the shows to see new goodies and get a chance to win brand new products before you can buy them anywhere!
Here’s what I did for this one:
Step 1: Trim Shimmering Pearl White cardstock to 6 1/2″ square. Matt & layer it on to a 7″x7″ white card blank. Next, trim the patterned card to 6 2/8″ x 6 2/8″ and affix to card front with Collall All-Purpose glue.
Step 2: Trim another piece of white card to 6 2/8″ x 6 2/8″. Die-cut the Butterfly Dance die on to the upper left side of card to create an aperture.
Step 3: Emboss the piece you just created (the aperture card) using the Butterfly Corner embossing folder and mount on to card front using our foam pads. (HOW fantastic does that embossing look? Love the deep texture these new folders create- I worked really hard on that bit!)
Step 4: Stamp your sentiment onto white card, matt & layer onto Shimmering Pearl White and affix to card front.
Step 5: Apply self-adhesive bling to butterfly center and attach to card front to finish.
It’s that simple, and you’ll have an elegant handmade card in no time!
Today I'm giving you the chance to WIN* this 'Just For You' photopolymer stamp set that coordinates perfectly with the products you'll see on HSN with me next week! This stamp set will not be on the show, and you can't get it anywhere in the US yet.... this is your chance to win it before you can buy it! All you have to do is comment on this blog post by next Tuesday!
I’ll be back soon with another tutorial and giveaway! I’d love to her from you… please leave me a comment and tell me what you think of my new collection!
Crafty hugs, Sara xx
