Just Magnolia/ ICSketches


I made this card fowllowing ICSketches great sketch this week~!! - Loved the idea of the window and I really enjoyed making it. I also love using buttons on boys cards so the minute I saw the sketch I knew what all those circles would be ;)



I also made this card for the Just Magnolia Challenge which was themed SUMMER. I cut out the window using a little x-cut circle cutter and stamped the butterfly on the inside of the card, then coloured both the butterfly and the Edwin image using distress inks. I cut Edwin out and used foam dots to give him a 3-D effect. The sentiment is a Pink Gem stamp.

Card ingredients:
Papers: BG Marrakech
Image: Magnolia - Chasing Edwin
TH Distress inks
Buttons & scrappers floss from my stash.
