Butterfly Challenge #74

I was delighted to be invited to be the Guest Designer for Butterfly Challenge #74  where the theme this fortnight is 'Butterflies + E is for Edges and/or M is for Mint Green'.

As I haven't made an easel card for quite a while, I've thought I'd make one for my butterfly card.  I used a SB 'Butterfly Circle' die and layered the white die cut on a mint green circle of card. The butterfly is a MB 'Vivienne'  die.  I used a Martha Stewart 'Optic Dot' edge punch for the pattern on the bottom of the card, punching it three times and layering the pieces of card.  My intention was to continue the pattern up behind the butterfly circle but it looked too fussy, so I decided to leave it plain.  The 'Happy Birthday' panel is raised up on foam tape to enable the card to stand up and the two white butterflies are the waste from the butterfly circle die. 

This photo shows the side view of the card.  

Pop over to the Butterfly Challenge where you can find details for the challenge. I'm looking forward to seeing all your entries for this fortnight's challenge.

  8. I think this is a beautiful card Liz and the mint green is perfect. I love that SB die with the sweet little butterflies which you have used to great effect on the sentiment panel, and the punched layers beneath it are extremely pretty. x

  15. Hi Liz,
    I noticed you mentioned about a Misti.
    Well check out the Tim Holtz one sold by Tonic as it's much cheaper before you invest.
    I believe it's £32.99
    I found out too late after I bought mine.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
