Another Butterfly Card

A PCP friend has thrown down the gauntlet by suggesting that I update my blog! Well she is right. I know that I posted yesterday, but I really should post more often.

I said in a few post back that I was going to use some magazines that I bought as inspiration. All I did, so far, was to go through them and mark the pages that interested me, at least it is a start, now I just have to continue making the cards. lol

This card is NOT inspired by any of the magazines but by a blog post by Susan Raihala who owns Simplicity. Susan makes the most wonderful CAS cards and I have being lurking on her blog for some time. The following card is influenced by Susan.  Thank you Susan for you inspiration.

I cut an A4 card in half, length ways and folded it in two to make the long card blank. With the other half of the A4 sheet I cut a rectangle shape and using my Spellbinders Butterfly Shapeability set I cut and embossed a butterfly. I mounted this rectangle on to the most lovely colored and glittered paper, the photo or any photo I took, does not do this paper justice. It is a rich teal colour and so glittered. Its Yummy! While the butterfly was still in the die, I used embossing glue and sprinkled glamour dust on to it and let it dry.
I mounted the yummy paper on to the card blank, I then stamped the sentiment and glittered this also. Once the card was finished I added the butterfly on a 3D foam pad.

Card: A4 Card pack
Yummy Paper (lol):  DCWV Hippie Chic
Glitter: DecoArt Glamour Dust - Crystal
Dies: Spellbinders Butterfly Two Shapebilities
Sentiment: Papermania

Hope you like,

You are right Vicky - that is scrumptious paper. Love the teal coloring and the shimmer of your fly-away butterfly. Outstanding job of clean and simple.

Awww, Vicky! Thanks for the kind words, and your card is WONDERFUL! Love the glitter and the clean, crisp simplicity!

Vicky, job well done here. I love how the 'shadow' of the butterfly is in the green contrast, really good effect. CAS is always beautiful and I think you've hit the nail on the head :)
