Butterflies and Roses

May 13, 2013

I’d like to share with you a card that the ladies at Beachmere made last week.  I am pretty sure that the design was insired by a card I saw on Pinterest (which I can’t find now) so if it looks like something you made, please let me know so I can give you credit.

0143I embossed a piece of Crumb Cake card using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and attached a piece of the beautiful Tea for Two Designer Series Paper to the lower edge.  Old Olive 1/2″ Dotted Scalloped Ribbon covers the join and then the whole piece was attached to scored and folded Crumb Cake card.  I stamped the butterflies, three large and three small from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Calypso Coral ink.  The large butterflies are punched using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and the small butterflies are punched using the Bitty Butterfly punch. The butterflies are attached to each other using Glue Dots in the centre of the body and small pieces of dimensional under the wings and then to the Very Vanilla card, again using Glue Dots and  1/2 a dimensional under each wings.  0153Three of the “string of pearls” on the Basic Pearls sheet are added to the centre of the small butterfly.  I like to add the dimensionals under the wings so that the butterflies will keep some dimension even after they are sent through the post.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals and another piece of Old Olive 1/2″ Dotted Scallop Ribbon is tied to the attached ribbon to the right of the image panel.  I stamped happy birthday from the Easy Events stampset using Calypso Coral ink on Very Vanilla card and punched it using the Word Window punch.  The greeting is attached to an Old Olive Modern Label and then the card front.  I stamped three of the large butterflies onto the left hand side of Very Vanilla card using Calypso Coral ink and attached it to the inside of the card.

0163All in all a very pretty card and one that works well with the lovely Tea for Two Designer Series Paper.  The ladies at Beachmere really liked this card and if you do too then download my free PDF.
