Butterflies and flowers

May 9th, 2011

Hi Everyone!

How are you all, hope you are keeping well and enjoying the weather. Had such a lovely few weeks off sunshine, managed to do some gardening. I find it so relaxing plodding around the garden.

Thought I share this butterfly and flower card design with everyone.  This is a design using Meiflower metal butterflies and sequin butterflies.

Chic general greetings card

Metal butterflies coloured in with Sakura pens

I have used a C6 white cardstock for the basecard, covered the top half of the card with a pretty floral scrapbooking paper and bottom half with light blue card.

The layered die cut flowers are from Bazzil Basics Paper Flower Pot Collection. I used a black and a white flower, the white flower inked in lilac.

I have managed to colour in the butterfly in blue using sakura pens. I have done this technique on Create and Craft. Click on the word `Butterfly’ if you would like to see the demonstration.

Layered sequin butterflies

I have also added the small sequin butterflies to go with this design. To give the layered look, stick three sequin butterflies back to back. I have added a wide lilac organza ribbon to the bottom half of the card to finish off the card.
