Swallowtail Stylish Mambo

Today, I have used dry embossing, heat embossing and emboss resist to create this very pretty pink birthday card for my friend Janelle.

I started by stamping the Swallowtail in Versamark on Whisper White. I then heat embossed it with Melon Mambo EP, sponged with Wisteria Wonder ink and fussy cut it. Using a two-way glue pen, I added Dazzling Diamonds gllitter for more highlights. Onto a base of Whisper White, I layered Melon Mambo which was embossed with the Stylish Stripes TIEF and then the embossed Swallowtail. I thought it still needed something else, so I cut some small butterflies with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits. Some Basic Jewel Pearls completed the bling. The sentiment from Itty Bitty Banners was heat embossed with Melon Mambo EP, cut with the Bitty Banners Framelits and attached to the card with Dimensionals.
