Card – Happy Anniversary


Good morning everyone. Vera here today with another project using May Arts & Core’dinations. I have to say Core’dinations cardstocks are among my favorite cardstock to use. I love that they have so many yummy colors to choose from and quite a few variation of texture as well.

I am going super springy with my card today. Here’s a look at it.

To make this card,  I used:

The Core’dination Jillian Dot Spotted comes in many colors, including pink. Just in case you’re looking for this particular pink and couldn’t find it, I have a confession to make. I started with the white one, then I was playing with it distressing the edges only with distress ink, not happy with the result, and continue distressing and… yeah… ended up covering the whole panel. So, you could either use the colored cardstock right away or cover it with it ink like I did. 

Good lesson. From this, I learned the Core’dinations cardstock took the distress ink very well. 🙂

Once you have your panel, cut 3 strips of ribbon, arrange and adhere to the panel. Then adhere the panel to the card. Die cut the frame, stamp it, and adhere off the edge on the card. Die cut the 2 butterflies, stamp, and adhere to card. I only put the glue on the body part and fold up the wings a bit for dimension. Stamp sentiment. Add pearl sticker to the butterflies.

Here’s a close up look of the butterflies corner.

Sweetness & cheerfulness in one card. It’s one of my favorite card among all the cards that I made recently. 🙂

That’s it from me today. Hope you find today’s project inspiring and thank you so much for stopping by here at May Arts. Have a blessed day everyone.
