A Beautiful Brusho Butterfly Card

Today’s card is another project that features the new Brusho Crystal Color!  I LOVE this new product!  It is so much fun to use and so colorful! Brusho comes in a set of five different colors including Brilliant Red, Gamboge, Yellow, Moss Green, and Prussian Blue.  For this card I used the Prussian Blue, with just a hint of the yellow as well.

The top layer of this card is made from Shimmery White cardstock.  I heat embossed the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set in white embossing powder, then applied the blue Brusho crystals and colored them with an aquapainter.  You don’t need a lot of crystals at all!  The colors are so vibrant, that for this lighter blue, I used very, very little!  I then sprinkled just a tiny bit of the yellow and colored that with the aquapainter as well.  While it was drying, I made the sentiment piece.  The banner is 1/2 inch wide, and I trimmed the ends using the Triple Banner Punch.  I then heat embossed the sentiment using the same embossing powder.  The sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set, another one of my favorites things from the new Occasions catalog!

Once everything was dry and cooled, I assembled the card.  The card base is Pool Party, the middle layer is Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper, and as mentioned before, the top is Shimmery White.  I used Fast Fuse adhesive between the top and middle layers, as it holds much stronger to the glimmer paper than regular snail adhesive.  The sentiment piece is attached with dimensionals to make it pop a little!  I added a couple of silver Metallic Enamel Dots, and it’s good to go!
