As everyone knows I love butterflies, and just before Christmas I found an Aladdin's treasure trove of a craft shop on the way from Birmingham. I thought the shop would be huge, but what they lacked in space they made up for in piles and piles of crafting bits.
In amongest my rummages I found a cuttlebug embossing folder made by Craft Concepts called 'Wings'. I saw it and knew I had to have it, but wasn't sure what it would look like on a card.
Well after a few tries of different ideas to do, I finally settled on letting the folder be the main part of a card, and just added a few flat back gems to give the butterflies a bit of sparkle, and here are the results:
I love them, because I think they are pretty elegant, and are very quick and easy to do. The ribbons used on both cards is from my stash, and the sentiments from CraftWorks Cards.
I'd like to enter these cards into the following challenges:
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Things With Wings
Sentimental Sunday - Anything With Wings
CES Challenge - All Creatures Great and Small
Mark's Finest Papers - Embossing
