I think it would be terrific for a slimline card as well, but I stayed with a landscape A2.
I started by stamping the Climbing Leaves 6x6 background stamp on white, then ink blended from dark to light. When the ink dried, the image was die cut with the coordinating die, then cut down further with a rectangle die. A piece of vellum was trimmed down to 2" wide, then wrapped around the leaf panel before adhering to a black panel. The next day after making the card the ink color had dried back quite a bit and seemed a bit flat, so I used two colored pencils to add some shading for more depth.
The butterfly was die cut from white, then I used three colors of orange, from dark in the middle to light on the outside. The body was die cut separately, so I just colored it was a black Copic marker before adhering the butterfly pieces together. I used tape runner on the back of the butterfly to adhere to the vellum except for the top of the wings, where a foam square was added for a little dimension. The die cut sentiment strip was left unused from a previous project, so it was added with foam tape across the middle. Next I used a white gel pen to create more interest to the butterfly with some white dots, then lastly added some clear sequins.
Thanks for visiting! I hope the remainder of your week goes well. Take care!
