Isn’t today’s Winged Masterpiece birthday card so beautiful? I am in love with this month’s Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month, Winged Masterpiece.
The butterfly and dragonfly in this stamp set are simply gorgeous. And the variety of sentiments, as well as fonts, in this set is amazing. It feels like it would be impossible to create a project with this set that wasn’t spectacular.
I used a blend of Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks to create the background for my card. About a month ago I shared a similar style card with my Cherished Blossoms Love Card. I stamped the images in our Intense Black Ink. (Because the background ink is Distress Oxide, the black ink reacts and looks a little muted in comparison to if it was stamped directly onto cardstock.)
I wanted to bring a little of the outside beauty to the inside of the card. I cut a small strip of the colorful Distress Oxide inks that I used to create the card front background and adhered it to some Black Cardstock before adhering it to the inside of the card. It was a small touch that had wonderful results.
And speaking of wonderful results, I loved adding a few of our Black Bursts to my stamped butterfly. It seemed like the perfect addition since I matted my card in black. And stamped in black. Plus, the butterfly itself is made up of small flower images. These little embellishments, while not intentionally designed as flowers, work wonderfully as flowers!
The best part about this beautiful stamp set is that you can get it for only $5 or FREE (if you are a VIP Customer) and you spend $50 or more this month. Plus, then you could create your own beautiful Winged Masterpiece birthday card!
