Big Shot Butterflies...


I had to chuckle last night - I showed my big flower card from yesterday's post to my hubby after finishing it and he said "It hasn't got any butterflies!"... ha ha! He knows me too well! Of course, I couldn't go two days in a row with no butterflies so I thought I'd share a card I made last night using some scraps left over from other cards. It uses the utterly fabulous butterflies dies available in the new mini catalogue:

I went completely berserk when I opened the mini catty and saw these butterfly dies - I have been wanting them for SOOO long and they're finally here!! Let me warn you now - these babies will be being used a LOT on my cards from now on lol! I also used some new papers (Springtime Vintage) as well as the Top Note die (also a favourite of mine) and some new Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon - the effect you can see on this card is made by pulling a thread from the middle of the ribbon and gathering it up - so easy and effective. I added a big button in the centre of the butterfly and some pearls to the edges, as well as to the centres of the little butterflies. The Top Note piece was cut from Baja Breeze card and run through the Big Shot with the Lattice embossing folder.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Sweet Birthday
Ink: Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz
Paper: Springtime Vintage DSP, Baja Breeze, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Shimmery White
Accessories: Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die, Beautiful Wings embosslits die, Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon, basics pearls, Springtime Vintage buttons, linen thread, square lattice & vintage wallpaper embossing folders, word window punch

Thanks for stopping by!
