today starts a new Inky Paws Challenge on the Newton's Nook Designs blog!
and it's a great one - burlap and lace!!
i used the AMAZING butterfly set: Beautiful Wings, along with the coordinating dies - the dies really make it SO easy!!!
it just so happens that I had some burlap 'paper' lying around, so i cut it into a banner shape (and ran some glue along the edges to prevent any further fraying)!
the butterflies were heat embossed in white onto some vellum, which i really think just adds to the delicate feel of the card! then i used my sewing machine to stitch the butterflies onto the burlap!
i even added a white doily under the banner! LOVE this card! It's not my usual style, but I'm super in love!
so be sure to play along with the Inky Paws Challenge so you can have a chance to win some Newton's Nook stamps and dies!
