A Perfect Time to Craft January 2021

So this post goes live in Australia on 1st January 2021. Due to the time difference it falls as my last blog post of 2020.

What a year!!! I want to thank each and everyone of you for your support over the past 7 months since I started my blogging journey. I have never encountered such a supportive community than the one I find myself emerged in now. 
I think we can all agree 2020 was not exactly what we had planned and I sure hope that 2021 is more predictable and that we are all kept safe and well.


So a new month,a new year and a new challenge over at A Perfect Time to Craft.

This months sponsor is Charlie's Stamps

I felt the butterflies were very symbolic for the new year as we can leave the past and grow into our futures. A bit mushy and deep for me I know and before you all ask no I am completely sober, I don't drink, for health reasons not out of choice I can assure you

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner




Card Making Supplies

Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers
Distress Ink in Peeled Stain and Walnut Stain
Aspen Tree stencil by TCW
Tiny butterfly embellishment
Versamark Embossing Ink

Card Making Tutorial 

I begun by printing, colouring my fox and cutting him using the scan n cut

Using the stencil I inked the trees


The bottom of the panel was blended in peeled paint.


I masked off a V shape and glued on the butterflies 


The image was glued on

I then heat embossed the sentiment

Before adhering it onto a Kraft card base

Thank you for reading

Happy Crafting
