Delicate and Distressed Cards

Hi everyone!  Can't believe the weekend is here already!  The weeks are just flying by!

Here are two more cards I taught in my card class this week.  The first card has a Just Rite Stampers butterfly from the Botanical Butterfly set that we colored in using the new Tim Holtz distress markers.  I used Core-dinations distress paper that has a Kraft core to cut/emboss the Lattice Accent which frames the butterfly.  I LOVE this Kraft core cardstock because it really shows off any embossed details from that the dies create.  

The second card is based off another card I created for the store.  The base is a shimmery gold paper cut with the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangle die template.  Then I embossed some cardstock and added four different distress inks.  I finished off that piece with some Pearl Mist and you can't tell from the photo but it's so pearly and very pretty!  I stamped the sentiment with a Unity stamp called Mod clocks and cut it out with Spellbinders Labels Twenty Five.  The sweet lil' rolled flowers are from a new Page Maps set called Whimsey.

I love hangin' out with the paper crafters from around here.  We had such a great class and everyone really enjoyed the different techniques.  I'm hoping to be teaching a layout one soon!

Hope your weekend is blessed and you are surrounded with inspiration!
