I was with my sister recently. Many of you know she also makes cards. As usual she had lots of scraps laying on her table, so I brought a few home with me to make a card, and the pieces were just perfect for this week's theme.
As you can see, I have lots of butterflies flitting around the vine climbing the trellis. The card base is the standard A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4). I liked the look of the mat leaving a border only on the two sides so I cut it the length of the base and 1/4" smaller in the width. The white mat is embossed using the Cuttlebug, and the butterflies are attached only in the center to look as though they're actually flying.
Here's a closer shot...all the butterflies are different:
I decided to bring just a little bit of the design to the inside of the card. I used just a patch of the DP for a tiny 'meadow' scene with some tiny butterflies.
Here's one more pic, and then your list of supplies:
Embossing Folder: QuicKut Diamonds & Dots
Die: Sizzlits: Branch w/Leaves (medium)
Paper: K&Company DP 'Happy Trails', DCWV textured paper for leaves, Stampin' Up for base
Punch: Martha Stewart Border Arches, various small butterflies (sorry, don't know)
Wishing you a most beautiful day . . . . . . . just because!
Always keep your creative genius happy and well-fed!!
