3 x 3 Minis - Part 4

Next up is a card made using one of the "Pastel Quilt" cards from HOTP.

I once again used a stencil and dimensional paint - this time a light blue.  (For tips on using dimensional paint, see yesterday's post.)

After the paint was thoroughly dry, I used a Spellbinder's Labels 4 die to cut and emboss the edges and used a blue gel pen to run along the embossing line.  I used the same pen with a ruler to frame the edges of the mini-card itself.  Since the die-cut piece extended beyond the edges of  the card, I decided to glue the piece to the card front and trim along the edges.  I then ran my gel pen along these edges.

Finally, I took a tiny butterfly outline sticker and glued it to a piece of blue paper. I trimmed around it, leaving a small edge of blue and then fastened it to the card just along the butterfly body, so I could fold the wings up for added dimension.
