Hi everyone! I have a butterfly birthday card to share today which uses five different kinds of gold brads! Yep 5!! This is Day 3 of my guesting at Eyelet Outlet and Brads and I invite you to head on over to their blog to see my guest post and check out the wide range of products their store carries.
I loved the idea of doing an ombre effect with the color and sizing of the butterflies. As the butterflies got smaller and lighter in color, I decreased the size of my center brad. The butterflies came from 3 different die sets, the bottom butterfly is from Les Papillions, the middle is from Flutters and the top is from Les Papillions Two.
Here are all 3 sets:
And the gold accents scattered about are the 1/16 mini gold and 1/8 gold brads. SO adorable! The little 1/16th size are super cute and perfectly scaled for cards. They really make me happy.
The subtle background you're seeing is made from a stamp. I stamped the little grid background stamp from the Make A Statement set in Versamark and embossed it with sparkle powder. I love the subtle effect it creates. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.
