Let Your Dreams Soar

Hello Everyone!  Betsy here on the blog today with this very ethereal card using the Soar Collection and Soar die!

I was very inspired by the dreamy quality of Suzanne's calligraphy and the images in the stamp set.  And the die cut "Soar" really needed some sparkle behind it!

I started by choosing a paper that went with my theme...in this case clouds and stars in the sky, cutting it to be 4" x 5 1/4".  I used the die, retaining the inner bits that I knew would have to be glued back on.  I cut a piece of heat resistant acetate and glued it behind the die cut. Then I adhered
the extra bits so the word would be clear. 

Then I put this panel in my MISTI to be stamped.  I placed all of the butterfly stamps and the sentiment on at one time.  I curved the sentiment...so easy to do as they are photopolymer.  I stamped everything in black hybrid ink and then heat embossed with Gothic Black Modern Gilding Powders.

At this point I colored in the outer parts of the butterfly wings with a white Prisma color pencil and then made hi-lights with a white gel pen.
Next it was time to make the shaker.  I placed foam tape all over the back of the panel.  I paid particular attention to the area around the die cut portion, making sure I placed my foam tape completely around the outer edge of it and that there were no gaps.
I cut a side folding A2 size card base out of dark blue card stock.  I placed my shakers bits, 
in this case clear diamond sparkles, onto the base where they would be 
captured by the foam taped top panel.
I gently placed my top panel over the shaker bits and made sure they were all contained before pressing it down firmly.
I added 5 iridescent star sequins to my piece and numerous tiny stars.  I added Liquid Pixie Dust on the actual paper in places where it was lighter.
This finished my card!
