Good Sunday morning. I have a Belleek Inspired card to share with you today. I haven’t made one in a while and had been missing it. It is one of my favorite techniques to use with delicate images like flowers and butterflies. You can check out the Belleek technique here.
I started by cutting my fleur de lis piece and measuring the size I wanted my embossed layer to be. I inked up my brayer with pink ink and brayered the inside of my embossing folder. I placed my cardstock in, embossed it and then attached to the front of the fleur de lis piece with mounting tape to add dimension.
I cut the Pippi butterfly with white cardstock and brayered ink on it to match the background. I brayered another piece of white cardstock, cut the tiny flowers using the flower mound and formed with stylus. I cut and formed the lavish branch and attached the tiny flowers with glossy accents. I attached the branch and butterfly to the card base using glossy accents. I added two tiny pearls to the center of the butterfly for an elegant finishing touch.
This card is only 4 inches square but packs lots of elegance in it’s small size. It would be perfect for a gift card.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great weekend.
