It is so gloomy here that it was nice to make a couple of butterfly cards. I used the cuddlebug to cut out the butterflies for both cards. Each card has 3 papers (not including the base) placed on top of one another. Actually the first card-the top paper is not paper but fabric. I went to a Sound Of Music Sing a long and we had to hold that fabric up to Julie Andrews when she could not figure out how to get fabric for the kids playclothes..."Look behind you" we all yelled before she realized drapes will do nicely. The base colour for the first card is a light green which I used the cuddlebug to emboss. I added a ribbon and some pearls for the bling. The second card I had scraps of paper that I had tried some sponging techniques for the top paper and wrote in the saying as our neighbour lost her brother..which is quite sad so I can't do much but give this card stating that we are thinking of her. I added the extra bling at the bottom and some stickles in the butterfly too. I am amazed that I did not add more glitter to my cards as I am usually a glitter queen. How do you like that ribbon? I actually made it and was surprized it turned out! Have a great day and week ahead

Love to have you visit.
This is so sweet.
Two very different cards with the same butterfly! I like the bold colors of your first one, makes your card rather summery and cheerful, whereas your second card has a more elegant feel to it with the silvery details. Nice cards, spotted them on MIM!ReplyDelete
