Hello Crafty Friends!!
Larissa here today sharing a Set of Cards showcasing the NEW Brutus Monroe Magical Monarch Toner Card Fronts, Magical Monarch Stamp Set, coordinating Magical Monarch Die Set, coordinating Magical Monarch Stencil and the NEW Magical Shattered Glass Deco Foil Sheets!! SWOON!! I’m in LOVE with these NEW Products and KNOW you will be too!!
Magical Monarch Cards
Here’s my First Card!! I created a Set of 2 Cards both using the SAME Exact Steps, just using the Different Monarch Options for a look at both of the Designs!!
Let’s get Started!!
I Started by Foiling the NEW Magical Monarch Toner Card Fronts with the NEW Magical Shattered Glass Deco Foil!! SWOON!! The New Foil is STUNNING in real Life and will pair BEAUTIFULLY with several of the other Deco Foil Colors!! I CAN’T wait to play around with the different options!!
Here’s a Look at the Foiled Card Front!! See how BEAUTIFUL the NEW Magical Shattered Glass Foil is, ONE of my NEW FAVORITES!!
TIP: SAVE that Negative Foil Sheet!! I’ll share some ways to use those in an upcoming Post!! CAN’T WAIT to share it with you!!
Next I Sprayed the backside of the NEW Magical Monarch Stencil with some Pixie Spray and then I placed the Stencil over the Monarch Image and Inked with some Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink!! I just repositioned the Stencil until ALL of Monarch Images were Stenciled!! I LOVE how the Stencil can be used to add the Design to the Butterflies, but you can also leave them plain!! SO MANY Possibilities!!
Then I used the NEW Magical Monarch Die Set to Die Cut some Cardstock that was Flocked!! I used the Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets and adhered them to my Cardstock and then adhered the Teal Waters Deco Foil Flock Sheets and ran it through my Die Cutting Machine to burnish the Flock into the Adhesive Sheet on the Cardstock!! I removed the Negative Sheet and was left with this BEAUTIFUL Flocked Cardstock that I Die Cut the Base of the Monarch Bodies from!!
I wanted the Top Layer of the Butterflies to match the Background Stenciling, so I decided to Die Cut them from the Negative Flock Sheet piece!!
TIP: I SAVE ALL of my Negative Flock Sheets as I personally LOVE the way they look and they are PERFECT for Die Cutting!! NO WASTED Product here!!
BEAUTIFUL Monarchs right!!?? Plus they are still Flocked and add a Contrasting Look against the Full Deco Foil Flocked Bases!! I did Die Cut 3 more of the Top Layers from some White Cardstock, just to make the Top Layer more Dimensional and Sturdy and adhered them all together using some Ultra Bond Adhesive!!
Then when I adhered the Top Layer to the Deco Foil Flocked Base, I only added Adhesive to the Center of the Monarch Body so I was able to POP up the Wings for some Dimension!! I LOVE how they turned out!!
Next, I added the Monarch to a Circle Die Cut that I inked with more Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink and I adhered it to the Foiled and Stenciled Card Panel using some Foam Tape!! I Stamped and Embossed the “Sending Butterfly Kisses” Sentiment included in the NEW Magical Monarch Stamp Set and then I added it to the Card Panel also using some Foam Tape!!
I Finished off both the Body of the Monarch and the Card Panel with some Trinity Stamps Fairy Rocks Rhinestones for some added Sparkle and Shine and I LOVE how this Card turned out!!
For my Second Card I used the other NEW Magical Monarch Toner Card Front and a different Sentiment from the NEW Magical Monarch Stamp Set!! SWOON!! Which Card Design is your FAVORITE!!??
I repeated the same process and Foiled with the NEW Magical Shattered Glass Deco Foil!!
A Close up look at that STUNNING Foil!!
Again I repeated the process of Stenciling the Butterflies with the coordinating NEW Magical Monarch Stencil, using Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink!!
I repeated the exact same Process for putting together the Monarch and then I finished by adding the Stamped and Embossed “Beauty is Everywhere” Sentiment and adding some Trinity Stamps Fairy Rocks Rhinestones!! The Iridescent Shine and Sparkle is MESMERIZING!! SQUEAL!!
