Thrifty Thursday Cloisonne Technique Greeting Card's not Thursday, but I found this tutorial  and had to try it!  What a perfect use for old magazines or scraps of paper!  I was inspired by the photo below.

I went through some old magazines, and here is what I came up with.
 My color base is Soft Suede and paired it with Taken with Teal and Whisper White.
 I love the loop border punch, so I used it again on this card.
 The butterfly is a $1 bin buy by Studio G, and the sentiment is from Perfect Punches by Stampin Up!

 I used tinted embossing ink, and gold embossing powder on the butterfly and then cut it out.
What do you think?  What will you come up with?


  1. Very pretty! thanks for the inspiration it's been awhile since I've tried this technique, maybe time to bring it out again!

  2. Very pretty! Love the layout and that butterfly is just a beauty.
