A Summer Time Butterfly Posy - #CI19

Image may contain: text

Welcome back everyone 😊
I am so happy you have decided to stop by my blog for a visit today.
I have been trying to use up some scraps that I have created over the last few weeks

So I decided I would create for Colour Inkspiration today.

I have been super busy these last few weeks with school holidays and then creating flat out once they went back to school.
Sometimes getting work done with the bairns at home isn't all that successful hahaha.
So I am just fitting this card in by the skin of my teeth 😅 .
I am creating a video for a International blog hop tomorrow and now must also go and prepare my pieces for that.

 The colours for this challenge are as follows.
Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Grey, Smoky Slate and Garden Green.

These colours just scream Spring and Summer to me 😊
And summer means Butterflies and flowers where I live
(I live in a very temperate climate)

Butterfly Posy

I pulled out some all time favourites stamp sets for this card, Watercolour Wings and Butterfly Basics!
My card base is Thick Whisper White with a layer of Basic Gray under the card front.
The back ground of my card came from some stamping off I was doing for another card.
The medallion was from my play with the Eastern Palace when I first purchased it.
I punched the flowers from some scrap Daffodil Delight using the blossom builder punch.
The little fine pieces of white are the trimmings from my card lol. 
I love how delicate they look, don't you?.

Angled View

I chose to create a trio of shadow boxes for a display ready for Christmas.

I can hang this on my wall or pop it on a shelf, wherever the fancy takes 😉

Here is my Shadow Box
decor item for Christmas.

I have used a selection of gorgeous stamp sets and DSP for this gorgeous decor item.
For a full list of items please refer to the carousel at the end of my blog.

Here is a quick template using 12 x 12 DSP shadow box each score line is 2cm apart. So score at 2,4,6,and 8 cm then turn and score again until all four edges have been scored. Turn and score two lines 4 cm long 1 at 10cm. and another 2cm before the other four score lines. Refer to picture below. Turn and score opposite ends identically.
Trim away corners following xxxx cut lines.

 Follow instructions as above to complete the shadow boxes..

The stamp sets used are Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Christmas Pines stamp set.
