May 2016 - Creative Circle Blog Hop! + Designer Team Calls

Hello Friends!
Welcome back to another Creative Circle Design Team blog hop.  If you are already going through the hop, you should have just arrived here from visiting my incredibly talented friend, Sandy Mott. When you leave here you will travel on to visit my amazing friend, Fran Sabad, who is also a designer for Karen Burniston. This hop we are featuring Delightful Dijon color from the 2015-2017 in Color. You will be amazed at all the fabulous projects created by the Design Team so be sure to go all the way through the blog hop!

This card was part of my Demonstrators' Display Sample card while I was in Salt Lake City for the onStage Live!

The color was quite challenging for me as if was more of a mustard color, so I challenged my CCDT to create a card using the Delightful Dijon.

I used Bold Butterflies as well as the Butterfly Thinlits Die.

To create this card:

Cut (1) 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Whisper White Thick cs, and score at 4-1/4".
Cut (1) 4-1/4" x 4-1/2" Delightful Dijon cs, and adhere to the base card at a slant to the right. Trim off excess.
Cut (1) 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" Whisper Whit cs, and adhere to the base card and a slant to the left. Trim off excess.

To create the butterflies: 
Cut (1) large bold butterfly and (1) small bold butterfly in Watercolor Paper.
Cut (1) large outline butterfly and (1) small outline butterfly in basic black cs.

Adhere the outlines to the watercolor with multipurpose glue. Take your aqua painter pen and add Delightful Dijon on the edges. Once this done, then pull the color towards the centre giving you a lighter delightful dijon color. You can repeat the process and adding as dark as you want it to be. When you have reached your desired color, apply crystal effect on evenly and let it dry. Adhere to the base card, and fluff the wings up.

I stamped the sentiment "I'm here for you." from the You've Got This stamp set. Give it a try! Very beautiful card. Now hop on over to Fran 's blog.
