Elegant Butterfly Card

This card began with a blue cardbase, to match the design paper I was using. I cut it to size, then added matching blue ribbon across the front. I also made a bow with the same ribbon, which I would use later.

After adding the design paper to the base, I cut and embossed the beautiful Cut, Foil and Emboss Modern Essentials Decorative Nesting Lacy Frames – using the two smallest sizes.

Foam tape was added between the layers to give dimension.

I felt it was looking too bare at this stage, and added the butterfly, using the same foil and the Nouveau Butterfly Cut, Foil & Emboss Die. I added a matching flower to it.

Lastly I cut out two pieces with the Morning Flourish Decorative Die, using a complimentary colour to the design paper, and then added the bow.

And that was my card made.

  1. Thanks so much, Verna. If you haven’t tried them, let me tell you the Modern Essentials are brilliant. I adore them, and have just ordered a ton more. I’m sure you’ll see them over time – once they arrive!
