MMSC#62 Enchanting Copper Priscillastyles Butterfly


See here in this picture, you can see the swirl metallic glow. It is positively gorgeous. I love this paper. And look at the clean sharp lines in the embossing on the copper....magical!!!

I have been collecting copper embellishments for a while now. I was thrilled to use them with this fabulous paper. I copper stickled my flowers, there are two types of copper colored glitter on my Priscillastyles Butterfly. Those are copper colored rhinestones as well.

Here is the inside of my card. I used the Martha Stewart Butterfly PATP, the Sizzx corner die, a cuttlebug embossing folder and a Spellbinders border die cut. And of course, this beautiful Priscillastyles digi that I just can't get enough. You can do so much with this butterfly and it always looks amazing on your cards.

Here is my card and envelope together. As you can see, the paper is shining beautifully on that envelope. I just love it. I have more papers from Paper Temptress. There is a Cream Velvet that feels as smooth and creamy as butter. I cannot wait to use that as well.

Carol, what a luxurious card! It's so intricate and beautiful. That paper is exquisite and yes, the copper has a glow, a real sheen to it that is just marvelous.

This sends a smile definitely for the viewer, its recipient will also beam! Thanks for participating with us at Opus Gluei!
