Iris Frame

Hello my friends! Today I'd like to share with you a card made with Irish Frame. It's a new stamp set revealed on March 1st. On my Tri-fold card I used same stamp in two different ways.

For the card front I covered piece of Sticker Paper with Daisy Velvet Glitter. After burnishing the glitter in and brushing off the excess glitter, I stamped the Irish Frame with Memento Tuxedo black on top of glitter. Image was colored with Promarkers. 

To keep my Tri-fold card closed I made a fun little lock to it. Strip of cardstock is glued to the back side of the card. Rest of the strip will tuck nicely behind the band hidden with the butterfly. I apologize my bad English. I hope the following picture will help you understand what I'm talking about.

Card closed with a "lock"/ side view of the lock band
I cut a window in to the card front. This lovely butterfly on the card front is punched out from the Sticker Paper and covered with Lacy Lilac Glitter.

The second flap I stamped the frame with Versamark ink to the purple cardstock. But because this stamp is wider then my cardstock I masked both edges of the CS before stamping.After covering the stamped image with White Detail embossing powder and removing the mask I heated the powder until it melted. Then I took my Versamarker pen and ruler and draw the missing frame lines. They was also heat embossed with White Detail embossing powder.
Flowers was colored with Sakura Glue Pen and covered with Daisy Velvet glitter. Same glitter is also on the butterfly, punched from Sticker Paper.

Sentiment is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink to the white cardstock. I added Dimensional Glue all around the edges and covered glue with Daisy Velvet Glitter. I also made some small dots to it with Sakura Glue Pen, they are covered with same Daisy Glitter. Sentiment is popped up with foam tape.

On the following photo you can get a better idea about this card.

I really should star checking how the photos came out before sending the cards away :) The photo of the inside was too foggy, so you just have to accept the close up of the top-right corner. I made the inside panel same way as the sentiment layer: Dimensional Glue is added all around the edges and covered with Daisy  Glitter. Small dots are made with Sakura Glue Pen and I covered them with Daisy Glitter again. Small butterfly is punched out of Sticker Paper and covered with Lacy Lilac Glitter.
If your sharp eye has noticed dark edge around the White CS layer, what's because I took an Aubergine Promarker and run it against all sided to mimic the the border of the Iris Frame stamp. 

You can find full directions how to make this card in the SNS Gallery here.
This is it for today. Hope you are having a lovely weekend! And happy International Women's Day to all of you.
