Flutterby Butterfly

I thought I'd share this card with you as I really like it and it was relatively simple to make. Hopefully you'll agree looks amazing (sorry probably a bit OTT there!).

It's an 8x8 (think I've forgotten about any other size card available!). I've mounted it with a sheet of Lucy Cromwell paper (which is embossed and sparkly), then I've used my spellbinders dies to cut out the frame and central part, where I've stamped the verse and embossed in silver. I embossed the circle frame with a dotty embossing folder and again, distress inked it with 'worn lipstick'. I've then cut out three various size butterflies and DI them (same colour) whilst still in the die (each one had slightly different patterned paper, but this doesn't show as much once you've distressed them*).

I then added them to the circle and here it is - hope you like it as much as I do. Thanks for looking and leaving a comment xxxx


*Please note no paper butterflies were hurt during the making of this card*
