A Card for Peggy


Hi everyone.  This card is for the SCS Challenge this week - Queen for the Day (QFTD175 - choose a previous Queen with the initials J-L), and I picked this card to CASE (copy and share everything).  I wanted to honor my good friend Peggy (jasonw1 on SCS).  I just love her elegant style.  She layers dies to create a work-of-art with every card she makes.  Many of Peggy's cards are monochromatic, with ivory being her favorite color so I used my ivory watercolor paper for this card.

Thank you Peggy ... not only for your inspiring cards, but also for your generous support of so many other crafters.

Here's a close-up of the flourishes and butterfly:



I die-cut the frame for the card front, positioned over my card base and then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiment.  I die-cut two flourishes (a gift from Peggy) and glued them at the base only.  I die-cut the two layers of butterfly, and then embossed the solid one with polka-dots (hard to see in the photo).  I glued the layers together at the "body" only and adhered on top of the flourishes.



Stamps:  Short and Sweet (SU!)
Paper:  Watercolor
Ink:  Soft Suede (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Apothecary Accent Framelits (SU!), Moonlight Butterfly and Kaleidoscope Butterfly dies (Memory Box), Flourish #6 (Crafty Ann), Polka-dot embossing folder (Sizzix for SU!), Stamp-a-ma-jig, adhesives, glue, glue dots, and dimensionals

Stunning Loll - it's taken me a while to comment as I clicked the link and got lost in Peggy's beautiful work. She will be delighted.
