I have joined a card swapping group on Facebook, each month they have different themes for the cards. For October, one of the themes was to make a winged creature card. For me, there was no decision to be made, it HAD to be a butterfly.
Ink: Memento Cantaloupe
Cardstock: White, Yellow
Dies: Memory Box Vivenne Butterfly, Darla Butterfly, Piestra Tile
Stamps: Flourishes Tulips for Friendship
Other: Pastel Basics Paper, Double sided tape, Kindy Glitz, Glue
Using the Darla Butterfly die and Pastel Basics Paper, I cut out the butterfly background. I then used the Vivienne Butterfly die and yellow cardstock to cut out the butterfly outline. I then adhered these, using glue, this step was messy and fiddly…for future reference I will use a glue pen, less mess 🙂 I set the butterfly aside for the glue to dry, once dry, I added Kindy Glitz and set it aside again to dry. The photo doesn’t show the glitter all that well…but it is there 🙂
I made the card base, and cut a piece of white card stock 1/2 cm smaller than the card base. Using the Piestra Tile die, I cut the strip along the side. I adhered this to the card base with double-sided tape.
I stamped the sentiment, and added the butterfly.
I am entering this card in the ABC Challenge – Y is for Yellow.
The card was inspired by this card.
Bye for now,
