Pink Butterflies...

Happy Sunday,

A simple card today made using just one die the Butterfly die by Donna Salazar for Spellbinders.  I also used papers form just one paper pad the Gypsy Gypsy 12"x12" pad form Craft Consortium.
Although it looks complex this was a simple card to make honest.  All I did was cut the die, which costs the butterflies and the outline rime shown on the card in white in one pass.


I cut the die in a piece of pink dot pearl, a patterned scrapbook style page and a piece of white pearl card all form the pad.

















I simply added the 'rim' to the backing in the slot in the pink patterned paper ( I say paper but the is at least 180gsm paper so perfect for die cutting and construction)


Enjoy...

  33. Hi John,Very pretty card today,I have made something very similar with one of Chloe's dies. Patterned papers are a good idea as I only did them in plain card and then embossing powder. Take care and stay happy and healthy,Lots of Love Barbara D xxx

  41. Eh up John
    I like the cutaway butterfly background but I just find these butterflies too chunky. I prefer the filigree, dainty looking ones but that's just me.
    Mind you, no feathers so 👍 lol!
