I had some left over paper strips from a challenge and decided to make a few more floating card images. The top card was made using the left over pieces from my original posted floating card. It was quite a project putting dimensional pop dots on all of those little blocks. The stamped image was from a GKD stamp kit Luck & Love. I added a little wink of stella to make the image stems sparkle a little bit.
This card uses the same technique and a Cheery Lynn butterfly die cut in gold and a GKD sentiment stamped and heat embossed in gold embossing powder.
I knew if I didn’t use these extra strips they would be forgotten or ‘accidentally’ thrown away!!!! I did make the mistake of using clear cover cardstock which is very heavy and would not cut completely in my Big Shot. Next time it’s acetate all the way.
Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Have a great day. I appreciate you and your time. Take care and be safe.

Both lovely cards! I have done this one time with packaging. I think Acetate is the answer to this technique.
Thanks, Lisa, yes the acetate would be much easier to cut.
Both of these are stunning! Love the colors!
Thanks, Diana, I love these colors too.
Both are beautiful. Love how the first one looks like ceramic tile. They make me think it’s time for me to make a floating card again.
Thanks, Gerry, it does look like a ceramic tile frame, doesn’t it?
These are both wonderful Gayle and using up the bits is always a good idea. I have a small container on my cutting station full of strips that I can use for making more. I love this technique. The first one is really cute and like Gerry said it reminds me of tiles. The butterfly is very pretty indeed.
Thanks, Johanna, and thanks for your inspiration on this technique.
Floating is such a successful technique even when the clear is too heavy. You have so much patience to fiddle with all those bits on the first one. And oh those colors especially the gold added.
LOL…Bonnie, you can just imagine I had glue and adhesive dots all over me. Thanks for your support.
Lovely cards. The butterfly is so pretty against the stripes.
Thanks so much for your support Judy.
I love your floating cards! What a fun way to spice up a card and you did it beautifully.
