Slimline Birthday Card with a gelli printed background and Distress Ink fodder butterflies

Hello everyone, I am again up with a slimline birthday card over at the Rubber Dance blog today. I created this card with Grungy Butterflies fodder, a gelli printed background and heat embossed Sketchy Flowers #3 as background details. For the DIY gelli print paper I used the Cross It and Marks 2 stencils with pastel toned acrylic paints.

For the background I used one of the gelli prints I created previously in bulk with a gelli plate. I took a slimline card base in cream to add the diy paper onto as a background, but before adhering that piece onto place I added some stamping with the Sketchy Flowers #3 set with embossing ink and heat embossed the flower images with white embossing ink. On top of that I added some golden pigment splatters for additional interest and then arranged a row of Grungy Butterflies on top. The video on how I created this fodder, is added to the end of this post.

I also decorated the butterflies with some golden details before adhering them into place. For the sentiment I used black stamp ink and one of the stamp sentiments from the Sketchy Flowers set.

Here is the video on how I created the butterfly fodder and a start-to-finish video about the card creating process as well as a peek into the gelli print papers I created in bulk:

I hope I could inspire you to play with your stamps and stencils and create fun mixed media cards!!
