Butterfly garden

Good morning,

Having spotted this shape card in blogland I wanted to make one straightaway.


The stamps I have used are from Inkadinkao (Garden Delights Clear set) and the sentiment is from Papertray Ink (Mega Mixed Messages). I have used Brilliance inks which have a lovely shimmer.

It doesn't show, but I have painted stickles glitter glue onto the butterfly, Burgundy on the coloured parts and Diamond on the clear bits. I have also dry embossed the butterfly from the back so that it is slightly raised on the front of the card.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a lovely day.

Clare xx

The shape of this card is fantastic, it's gorgeous. By the way I love the new blog background [being a bit of a butterfly lover] - very girly.
Have a great day - Ju xx

Hi Clare.

I've just been having a lovely catch up with what you've been up to and am blown away with your creations. They are gorgeous, really different from your usual style. I love the cracked glass UTEE, must try that and those dragonflies are amazing.
I see you have a little crafting friend too, he looks very industrious.
I love the shape of this card, it's really unusual, there are so many different shapes for cards at the minute aren't there.
Hope you have a good week.

This is really lovely Clare! It's a very pretty shape and I love the stamps you've used as well as the colours. That's very neat paper pricking along the top edge too.
