Spring Greeting Card

Today it's Kisha here with you to share a quick post on how I create soft Spring time themed card. Spring flare cards are great to create for giving anytime during the year.  They are great for any occasion, especially for those "Just Because" moments in life.

The focus of my card is this beautiful wood Butterfly Fancy

I used Silks paint in Gold and mixed it with water to keep the color soft and to allow the details of the butterfly to show through.

After altering the Butterfly Fancy I begin adding my layers of pattern paper, gesso, inks, ribbon and doily.

After the base of your layers have been adhered, next it's time to add larger embellishments such as flowers and of course Unique Laser Designs embellishments.

After the final layers have been added, add a bit of gesso over the flowers to give them a shabby look.  I also added more splashes of the Silks and watered down gesso to complete the card.
