Sent With Care card by designer Melinda Spinks

Hello and welcome... it's Melinda with you today and I'm sharing a card I created using one of the gorgeous Hampton Art/Spellbinders 'Shapeabilities' sets.

I wanted to create a very subtle card to suit the sentiment so decided to use a repetitive pattern of the butterfly starting from the boldest colour working down to the palest which would lead the eye down to the wording.

Each piece was stamped and heat embossed before I put it through my hand embossing machine to use the cutting die before adhering to the card using a foam pop dot.

Although I wanted to use black ink for the sentiment I felt that if left with 100% density it might be too overpowering so I stamped off some of the ink and used the second impression on my card.

Once everything was in place I felt that the design was missing something so after a few trials with sequins and epoxy dots I settled on adding a few mini pearls to the card.
