Freshly Made Sketch 474

March 1, 2021

I saw the sketch challenge at Freshly Made and I just had to give it a try. I attached a piece of Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to Magenta Madness card and then scored and folded Thick Basic White card. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Peaceful Moment stamp set onto a narrow strip of Basic White card using Magenta Madness ink. I attached the Basic White panel across the card front. I cut BasicWhite card using one of the Layering Squares Dies which I attached to a scalloped square cut from Magenta Madness using the same dies.

I attached the two pieces together before attaching to the card front using dimensionals. One of the patterns of the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper with butterflies, is able to be cut using the Butterfly Brilliance Die to give 6 beautiful butterflies. I used two of these butterflies on this card, the two with the Magenta Madness colour.

I curled the wings of one of the butterflies using my bone folder, added mini dimensionals under the wings and glue dots in the centre of the body and attached it to the Basic White square. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped another greeting from the Peaceful Moments stamp set using Magenta Madness ink and attached another of the die cut butterflies. I also attached a piece of the same pattern Buttefly Bijou Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the inside of the card.

This card turned out so pretty I created two more using the rest of the die cut butterflies. They each use a different patterned paper from the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. One card uses Bermuda Bay card and ink and the other uses Calypso Coral card and ink.

Don’t you think they look prettty? Thank you Freshly Made for the inspiration.

Bye for now,
