Just For You

A card today to join in with a few challenges.  The Butterfly Challenge this fortnight is 'Spin The Butterfly Wheel with the Letter A'.  For my card I decided to included all seven elements - Apricot/Azure/Amethyst/Add layers/ Add buttons/Add ribbon /Butterfly.


The doily is die cut with a Memory Box 'Astrid Circle' die in white.  I die cut the doily in apricot, azure and amethyst card and used 'waste' to inlay into the white doily.  The butterfly is a Memory Box 'Pippi Butterfly', cut in black.  I used a Memory Box 'Isabella Butterfly' die, which is a solid butterfly shape, with a piece of a double sided adhesive sheet and attached the black die cut over the top.  This left all the apertures in the black butterfly sticky.  I used the 'Pippi Butterfly' die again in the three other colours and inlaid the waste into the black butterfly outline.  This was really easy with fine tweezers as the apertures were already sticky.  I attached a piece of ribbon to a scalloped strip of white card and added three buttons.  A computer generated sentiment finished of my card.

  3. The contrast with the pretty brightly coloured and patchwork look to the butterfly, the flowers round the die cut mat and the ribbon with the scalloped white card against the dark background is so pretty Liz, and I love the three added buttons as a finishing touch on the ribbon too. A beautiful card. x
