Beautiful inside and out - blue themed c6 card - Day 41 of my 365 day challenge

Beautiful inside and out - blue themed c6 card - 
Day 41 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Just a quick card today as I am channel hopping watching the Rugby and the Winter Olympics! Here is day 41's project for my 365 day challenge - hope you like this hand coloured and hand stamped card..

Here is how I made it....



  • I had cut out a butterfly previously using a Tattered Lace die but felt that I could use the "waste" as a stencil if I was careful and so I coloured through it randomly using one of Altenew's mini pads - I have tried and tried but cannot read what colour it is on the lid...
  • Anyway, once I was happy with what I had done, I checked it against the card and saw it was too big so I trimmed it down using my Cutterpillar Pro and then coloured the edge of it using an alcohol marker.
  • I then stuck it to a slightly larger panel of blue paper (from the Rainbow Radiance Stylish Silhouettes paper pad) and also trimmed that down 
  • I stamped the Beautiful sentiment (from Stamps By Me) on top of the background again using that beautiful Blue ink - I deliberately didn't stamp it totally as I wanted a slightly grungy look.
  • I then stamped the Inside and out onto some black cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with some White embossing powder and stuck it underneath the Beautiful.
  • Finally, I added it to the white tent fold card (from Paper Boutique from Creative Crafting World).

And there you are a card that is really fun to make!
