Gelli Print Card on Kraft Card

This was me experimenting with my Gelli plate again.

Mum's birthday was coming up and she said she didn't mind if I used the making of her card as Gelli plate practise, so that's what I did. Thanks Mum.

I cut myself a butterfly mask out of Doeflex with my Silhouette Cameo.

I used that along with bubble wrap, sequin waste, and a letter stencil to create the texture on the base layer.

To start with, I printed onto white card but wasn't too keen on the result - it was a bit bright and I wanted a more muted effect.

So I switched to kraft card. The butterfly background is the second print that you get when you've removed the stencil.

They both have a base print where I used beige paint and the bubble wrap etc. to create the texture. The  butterflies are the first print with the stencil still in place.

I then cut out the middle with a Scalloped Nestabilitie and did the stamping. I got the idea for the butterfly circle from The Stamp Man's Jill Tuck when I was watching her on Create and Craft. I think it's a lovely idea and one I plan to use on my IndigoBlu clock kit, if I ever get the time to make it!

The border that the ribbon is threaded through and the mat for the Nestabilitie were cut on my Silhouette Cameo. The stamping is all done with Black Archival.

Stamps Used
