My Bestie Butterflies and Mermaid Cards

Hello Besties! Today I want to share with you my Design Team reminder projects for our challenge going on over at My Besties Color It, Create It, and Show It Off Challenge Blog. For my first project I created a Butterflies and Birdcage Card.

To create my card I used one of Sherri Baldy's My Bestie Digital Stamps called Image 958 that you can find here:

To make my card first I made the card base from basic shapes in Design Space. I then uploaded the digital stamp and sized the image to fit my card base perfectly. Next I cut the card mat from the largest of the Fancy Frames Dies from Craftin Desert Diva's. 

Next I colored the digital stamp in with Copics and then layered Prismacolor Premier Pencils on top for the highlights. Once I was done I fussy cut out the digital stamp and attached all of the layers to my card base. I then cut the butterflies and birdcage from some patterned card stock that I had and added them to my card for some extra embellishment. To finish I added rhinestones, flowers, pearls, and a ribbon.

For my second project I created a Mermaid My Bestie Card. 

For this card I used one of Sherri Baldy's 3D Printable Sheets called Oct 22 Colored Printable that you can find here:

To create my card first I made the card base from basic shapes in Design Space. I then used a Spellbinders Die to cut out one of the 4 mermaid images on the printable sheet. I then fussy cut pieces from the other 3 images to create a multiple layered 3D image. I used foam tape between each layer on the mermaid to add more dimension. To finish I attached everything to my card base and added flowers and a ribbon. 

I hope that you were inspired by my Design Team projects, and join us for our current challenge over at My Besties Color It, Create It, Show It Off Challenge Blog that you can find here:
