Twofer Butterflies

I made these cards for the Twofer Challenge where the prompt is 'Butterflies'.  I have used my Memory Box 'Kaleidoscope Butterfly' die to make a friendship card and a birthday card.

Twofer One - Hello

I trimmed the marbled paper, layered it onto grey textured card and attached it to the centre of the card blank.  I die cut 'hello' and the butterfly from both white hammer and grey textured card.  I layered the two sentiment die cuts to form a shadow and attached it to the lower corner.  The white butterfly was also layered onto the grey die cut and attached to the upper corner.  The butterfly body was cut from white card and attached at the centre.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white hammer card blank
     Memory Box 'Kaleidoscope Butterfly' and Altenew ' Simply Hello' dies
     Snippets of marbled paper, white hammer and grey textured card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - I spy with my little eye something beginning with B (Butterflies)
     NBUS Challenge - Challenge 16 (my 'Hello' stamp is NBUS)
     Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 382

Twofer Two - Happy Birthday To You

I trimmed a piece of white hammer card so it was slightly smaller than the card blank and rounded the corners.  I die cut the wicker panel from white hammer card and attached it across the panel.  I stamped the sentiment below the wicker strip and attached the panel to the card blank.  I didn't have any dark purple card for my butterfly, so I glued two snippets of purple paper together to die cut the butterfly which was then attached onto the wicker panel.  To finish I attached three small white crystal stickers to the card.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white hammer card blank
     Memory Box 'Kaleidoscope Butterfly' and 'Wicker Panel' dies
     Hobby Art 'General Greetings' stamp
     Versafine Imperial Purple Ink
     Snippets of Polka Doodles 'Fourini' paper and white hammer card
     Mark Richard Crystal Stickers

I am entering the following challenges:
     AAA Cards - Made in Minutes
     Pearly Sparkles Challenge - Three of a Kind (I used three Crystal Stickers)
     Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes

Fantastic Twofer butterfly cards Kath and that MB butterfly is a beauty and love the marbled paper and the great contrast of the white butterfly and die cut sentiment, and then the black butterfly and coordinating black sentiment go perfectly with the white wicker die cut panel behind, and some pretty pearls too..so elegant, and this one is my favourite. x

Your work is always so neat, Kath! I love both of your square designs using that sweet butterfly! The marble pp is just stunning as a background on your hello card and your shadow elements and mat stand up to it beautifully! And I really love all that white and the purple butterfly on your pretty birthday card. The texture from the hammered paper and the woven panel is awesome! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #29! Keep well! Hugs, Darnell
