Beautiful Butterflies

Happy Tuesday peeps!

Ooops! I've not been around again for a couple of weeks. It's been mad crazy since we got back from holiday.

A dear friend had a birthday a few days ago and I created a simple, yet beautiful card for her.

What you need...

Card stock: white
Patterned paper: Hello Summer 6 x 8 Paper Pad - Simple Stories
Dies: Beautiful Butterflies (WP9D-214) - WPlus9
Gems: clear

What you do...

1 Create a 10.5cm x 14.5cm top fold portrait blank.

2 Cover the blank with a 10cm x 14cm piece of the striped paper.

3 Die cut the butterflies and lettering in white textured card stock.

4 Place the lettering in the centre of the blank the same way as the die is laid out, then add a butterfly at the top and bottom. Add a few gems to finish.

This is an unusual sized paper pad with quite large motifs. Some of the papers have just one image with an inspirational phrase or word. These would be perfect to trim and frame, or even make a huge card.

The colours are bright, yet muted if you know what I mean and is full of motifs such as palms, flamingos, watermelons, cacti and flowers to name but a few.

Okay, so that is me for now. I'll be back soon with some more quick and easy Christmas cards using one collection.

I would also like to start sharing with you more of my magazine projects, I feel that I don't push myself out there enough.

Anyhoo! Take care and thanks for popping by.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it - Colette xx
