Butterfly Thanks



Doesn’t this butterfly look great??


It’s an idea I’ve CASED from Kirsty Brown. Kirsty was one of the Australian Demonstrators at Convention who did a Workshop WOW presentation for us. You can check out the card she did for the presentation here. Kirsty used a technique on her card but I decided to just use some of our gorgeous Designer Series Paper instead. I will be making more though and will definitely put the rest of Kirsty’s presentation idea into another.


I’ve combined Kirsty’s idea with a challenge, surprisingly so, for my creation today. 


The challenge is from The Paper Players and is Challenge #50.



So would you like to see the whole card?


Here it is.




I’m not sure I like how the sentiment ended up on this one but it’s actually covering up a ‘first’ idea which I didn’t like at all.  You may also notice that the inside has an edge of the image stamped down the side and some of the DSP the butterfly is cut from along the bottom to carry the look through. 


Stamp set: Notably Ornate, Thank You Kindly
Card: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Love Letters DSP, Neutrals Pattern Stack – Very Vanilla, Regals Pattern Stack – Riding Hood Red
Ink: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Big Shot, Beautiful Butterflies die, Basic Jewels – Pearls, Very Vanilla 1/8” Taffeta Ribbon, Stampin’ Dimensionals, 2-Way Glue Pen, Snail Adhesive.


I’d love to hear what you think of my creation so please leave me a comment.


Till next time….
