I'm late with today's post as I have been out and about today meeting with my friend Laura *waves* in Salisbury. Laura is another one of those people I would never have met unless we had both become SU! demos. So I thank SU! for introducing me to her every time we meet :-)
Anyway, the card I have for you is a pretty butterfly card based on a similar one I made HERE back in May of this year using Summer Silhouettes with the Hardwood background stamp. It appears to have been very popular on Pinterest, who knows what cards will grab Pinners attention huh? ;-)
So, I made this similar one using the Hardwood background stamp again but this time teamed it with Papillon Potpourri in Night of Navy and Calypso Coral with a touch of Garden Party (leaves) to make this card.
TOP TIP 1: Stamp your sentiment first, then add butterflies around it.
I've had this scrummy Coral Seam Binding ribbon burning a hole in my craft room for a while now so couldn't resist using it at class this week
and I added a couple of stamped and punched butterflies to the card for some 3d action on there :-)
TOP TIP 2: Use a pair of fine tweezers to fold your butterflies up and around, this gives you a nice flat centre to add glue to as well as perfectly creased butterflies.
Right, that's me for today but I'll definitely be back tomorrow with another card for you.
Thanks for looking today,
