Butterflies and Knots

A big 'thank you' to Mrs A for inviting me to be her Guest Designer again on the Butterfly Challenge.  I chose the letter K (for Kath) which Mrs A says is 'K for Knot'.  I took the inspiration for this card from Becky's New Year's Resolution - her scrap cards are fabulous and a great way of using snippets too!


Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk 
Die: Memory Box 'Pippi Butterfly'
Punch: Woodware Super Duper Square punch
Card: Black matt
Paper: BoBunny Isabella paper stack (magazine freebie)
Other: Pink and grey ribbon, Sakura Micron pen

I punched nine squares from various papers from the BoBunny paper pack and drew two squiggly lines around the edge of each square with the Sakura pen.  I attached a piece of ribbon around the two plain squares and knotted a smaller piece of ribbon around each one.   I attached the squares to the black card using Collall All Purpose glue, as this allowed me to move the squares to make a close fit, and then attached this square to the card front.  I backed two small pieces of paper with white card (to give it some strength) before die-cutting two butterflies and attaching them to the card.

Mrs A has set a great challenge and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's cards over the next two weeks!

  8. I like this, Kath! This is a fab colour combo and I really like the patchwork look you made by using your scraps. Congratulations on being a GD! Your knots are fabulous - I really don't know about this challenge - it's a toughie! I thought the last two had me stumped but I came through in the end. Maybe something will eventually click for this one too!

  14. Thought I had left a message here but it seems to have gone walkabout. This is lovely Kath. Those knots are a real inspiration and the patchwork papers are in my favourite colour too. Thankyou for being my Guest Designer for this challenge. Hugs Mrs A.
