A gelly thanks

Today I have another gel-a-tins project to share!  The more I make cards, the better I feel about the way they turn out. 🙂  If you’ve heard me talk about cards at all over the last year you’ve heard me say that I hate making them and my brain freezes up every time I start a new one.  Well now I am happy with them more often than not.  I guess practice makes perfect (or better than ugly at the very least 🙂  Anyway, here’s my first card for this month…

Here’s how it all came together:  I got this Big and Wild Things set and this was exactly the kind of project I thought it would be perfect for!  The first thing I did was stamp three of the images onto some canvas I got at Michael’s.  I used three different greens for a natural, watercolor kind of look.  I trimmed the canvas down and backed it with some green cardstock.  I sewed around the edge with my machine and then inked and attached it to a kraft cardstock card base by Canvas Corp.  The butterflies were punched from craft and I stamped on them with another of the stamps from this set to add some pattern to them.  They got some brown Stickles around the edges to add a little more detail.  The sentiment just got attached to come more card stock and then the card (with foam dots this time).
