** This is my first of two posts today. Please click HERE for the Live & Love Crafts March challenge. **
Hello, sweet friends! Are you ready to kick off a new month of crafty fun? ♥︎Graciellie Design's Digital Stamps. Gracie's stamps are not only versatile, but they're also as beautiful as her heart! Today I am sharing a card with you using one of the new sets called Butterflies.
I colored the butterflies with Copics (BG10-BG72-BG78) to coordinate with the LemonCraft papers, layering the large one. I adore Gracie's stamps because they so often portray exactly what my heart wants to say in my charitable cards. This sentiment is perfect for a lovely 19-year-old named Anna, a cancer warrior who is now blind due to her brain tumor. Her world has darkened with change and Hope must be her light.
Although I always love incorporating texture, it was especially important here. Because Anna cannot physically see this, I wanted her hands to have ruffling trims and large blossoms to explore. My heart believes she *will* see this one day; that her sight will be restored, along with everything else cancer has stolen. Until then, she will feel the love fluttering in it.
An extra bit of texture for Anna is a metal filigree corner, which is heat-embossed with Shabby White Frantage. The laces and most of the flowers are from Live & Love Crafts. The Cappuccino crinkle ribbon is from DL.Art.
