May's Guest Designer, Jan, shines like gold!

Jan here with some crafty inspiration for you today! 

I used my CropStop product to adorn this glassine bag. This will make a great journaling card envelope or a gift card holder.

Using the Couture Creations Dream folder, I embossed two different patterned papers with the same area of the embossing folder.  I cut the papers into 1 inch squares and alternately pieced them together to make the "quilted" background.

For the butterfly, I embossed a square shaped blot of ink with gold embossing powder and then cut out the butterfly with Couture Creations Art Deco butterfly die.  The WOW! gold embossing powder 
accentuates the details of the butterfly.  I added a piece of May Arts white sheer ruffle edge ribbon under the butterfly.
 
Here's a close up of the Action Wobble Spring that I placed under the butterfly.  It adds both motion and dimension to the butterfly.
