Isabella Butterfly

As I'm not working at the moment and we're obviously not away in Cali, I've more time for crafting.  So, in future I'm moving away from only posting my cards on Wednesdays and will post as and when I' want to link to challenges.  I'll still post Folksy Fridays and my non-cardmaking item on a Sunday.

Today's card is one I made for my friend's birthday using one of my favourite butterfly dies.

I covered the front of the card blank with pink floral paper, leaving a border around the edge.  I die cut 'Happy Birthday' from white hammer card and attached it across the bottom of the card, lining up the edges with the paper.  I die cut 'Happy Birthday' from red pearlescent card and inlaid the letters.  To finish, I die cut a butterfly from red pearlescent card and attached it above the sentiment.


To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" white hammer card blank
     Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday' and Memory Box 'Isabella Butterfly' dies
     Lili of the Valley 'Heartfelt' paper pad
     Snippets of red pearlescent card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Crafty Calendar Challenge - Use a Butterfly
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies - April Challenge
     Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

That crackle look to the background paper is terrific Kath and the sentiment border die goes beautifully, and finished with a really pretty coordinating butterfly. A super card! x

Beautiful! I always like these Memory Box sentiment dies, and perfect the way you've inlaid the pearlescent paper and matched the butterfly. Thanks for linking up with us at Seize the Birthday!
