The Butterfly Challenge #17 is 'Emboss Your Butterfly' so, as I need to make a birthday card for a friend's birthday next week, I decided to make her a butterfly card.
The background was embossed with a Swiss Dot embossing folder. I made a silver frame using Nestabilities and attached it over a circle of white card, using foam pads. The large butterfly was cut out with a Spellbinders die I bought years ago, which I really love. It cuts out two butterflies at the same time, both embossed and one with holes. I cut the butterflies out in dark blue and silver and attached the silver one behind the blue one. I also now have a butterfly the opposite way round to use on another project. I hope this makes sense - it sounds a big confusing reading it back! The butterfly is also attached using foam pads to make it stand out. The little white butterflies were cut out with a Sizzix die which cuts and embosses at the same time - if you look carefully, you might see the embossing! I keep forgetting how difficult it is to photograph mirror card. The silver shines through the holes in the butterfly beautifully, but looks a bit dark in the photo.
I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
