I got my inspiration for my butterfly cut out card from a card I saw on Pinterest by a talented crafter, named Lindsay. If you click on the snowflake card below, it will take you to her blog. I decided to use a butterfly die, vs a snowflake. With my first or sample card I used a patterned background paper, and embossed the plain white cardstock. I wanted a more colourful background, so I created my own using a Crayola watercolour set and Tim Holtz’s watercolour paper. I made three cards, one with the watercoloured background, and two using a white background and cutting the butterfly out of the watercoloured paper. I used the Large Exotic Butterfly die by Cheery Lynn, and various sentiment stamps.
I entered this card into the Butterfly Challenge
I entered this card in the Time Out Challenge - CELEBRATIONS with the optional twist of BUTTERFLIES. With my Hello Card, I am celebrating my friendship with my BFF, just sending her a card to say I was thinking about her!
I designed this card with the watercolour challenge at AAA Cards Challenge – Game #14 and CAS on Sunday – Challenge #39 Butterfly. I also entered it into Try it on Tuesday Challenge – Things with wings
