For this card I have stayed with a simple design that is easy to do and is ideal for those occasion when a quick card is needed.
Have an evening where you sit and die cut lots of different shapes or embellishments so that you always have some on hand for such a time.
- S6-025 6x6 Matting basics A
- S6-026 6x6 Matting Basics B
- S4-293 Lacey Circles
- S4-395 Les Papillions Two
- GC-200 Grand Calibur
- Teardrop Diamante from Want2Scrap
- Stamp from Clearly Besotted (Free with magazine)
- Twine from "Stash"
With die #8 from Matting basics A cut two panels and Create a Hinged Card for your base
With die #8 from Matting Basics B cut one panel from Silver
With die #7 from Matting Basics A cut another panel in patterned card
( Please remember that die #1 is always the smallest)
Stamp and emboss your sentiment and layer it with Lacey Circles cut in Silver for a pretty edge
Cut the butterflies from any butterfly die that you have in your collection and layer the two shapes together with glue along the body line only.
Curl the wings upwards slightly
I have hand cut another smaller layer in purple to go between the patterned card and the Silver and wrapped all the layers together with my cord.
I splayed the cord out along the card for another look and glued the ends on the back.
Add all these layers to your base card with foam tape to add dimension.
Add your sentiment also with foam tape to the centre of the card and arrange the butterflies around it just gluing along the body line so that the wings can still curl upwards
Add in the butterfly trail with Diamanté
I added in some Diamanté Teardrops and the card is ready to send with your love
More tomorrow ...
