Chevrons

I was delighted to be invited to be a Guest Designer for Butterfly Challenge #89.  The theme this fortnight is 'Butterflies + C for Chevrons and/or the colour Purple'.
For my first card I used a Couture Creations 'Chevrons' embossing folder.  There is a blank panel down the left-hand side, so I added a purple strip and a sentiment going down.  The butterfly is Memory Box 'Vivienne' and 'Darla'  dies.  The butterfly is just attached along the body, leaving the wings free.

I am joining in the following challenges with this card:
Simply Create Too Challenge #133 ~ CAS
Monochrome Magic Challenge #6


I made a frame with two dies from the Creative Expressions 'Double Pierced Squares'.  I used a Fiskars chevron punch along three of the sides, before matting on the piece of patterned paper. The punch was used again with white and yellow and the waste inlaid in the frame.  The flower is a Cherry Lynn 'Sunflower' die, which I cut out in white and yellow to turn it into a daisy.  I used a green Promarker round the edge of the yellow circle and added a tiny purple butterfly to the flower. The sentiment is die cut with stitched rectangles and attached with foam tape.  Four clear gems in the corners finished off my card.

I look forward to seeing all your beautiful entries in the Butterfly Challenge this fortnight.

  4. Well you certainly covered the challenge theme! This is lovely - that chevron background is so pretty. Great idea to inlay the chevrons on the second card - it has an "Inca" look to it!!

  25. Hooray for guest designing and sharing these lovely cards, Liz!! I love the purple...and the bright and happy complementary colors look great with your inlaid technique. I am sorry to be coming over so late to admire them. I have been running around here like a head with its chicken cut off and barely getting on my blog at all.

    I had to chuckle at myself when I was looking at your cards while on my first cup of coffee for the day. My eyes are still morning bleary and they are not as good as they used to be! So when I saw your pretty daisy and butterfly card with the slightly stylized font, I thought it said "Flappy Birthday" instead of "Happy Birthday"...you know, like butterfly wings flapping or something. I was smiling at the punny greeting when I realized that it was just my old eyes!!! lol.... Seems that I read all sorts of interesting things on the internet when I don't wear my glasses!!! Ha.

    Thanks for sharing your sweet cards!!
