Butterfly Card.

Today was my first workshop of 2011. I had 5 lovely ladies come and squeeze around my dinning room table - and this is what we made

This is the front of the card and it uses all Stampin' Up products. The square card is a piece of Very Vanilla 5 1/4" x 10 1/2" folded in half. The front piece is Baja Breeze which has been stamped with Baja Breeze and Night of Navy inks using the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Prints set and the little butterfly from the Flight of the Butterfly. A piece of the Elegant Soiree DSP has been scalloped and stuck at the bottom - all the edges have been inked with Night of Navy.
Here is the inside

The inside has been decorated a little like the front however a  piece of the DSP was attached to the top of the card to make a stand out pelmet from which to suspend the butterflies.
Here is a close up

The butterflies have been attached using small strips of acetate so it looks like they are flying out of the card.
I think everyone enjoyed making this card and the feeling was that it didn't have to be butterflies - one lady did flowers using Vintage Vogue, another thought was fish and maybe even at Christmas - snowflakes.
Well that's it for today - see you soon - Jacqueline xx.

  1. I love the card front with its elegant design and lo and behold there's more loveliness inside the card! What a good idea to suspend your butterflies using strips of acetate.
