Butterfly Love


Hi, I made another lattice card with the leftover shimmer frame from my marshmallow coloured card I made a little while ago. The card base was distressed for another project but I wasn't happy with the distressing - too blotchy! I still need a lot of practice to improve my technique. Anyway, I thought the lattice covered up the uneven colouring well!

I'm entering this card into a few challenges.

Flutterby Wednesdays has a love, wedding or anniversary theme this week. Remember to use a butterfly or fairy in your project.

Simon Says Stamp has an Anything Goes challenge which is closing very soon!

and Make It Monday, a great spot to share your Anything Goes projects and to find inspiration amongst other card crafters.

Materials used: Papertrey Ink Quatrefoil Coverplate; Memory Box Madeira corner, Primo label and butterfly dies;EK Success & Punch Bunch flower punches; distress ink;Vellum painted with Twinkling H2os for the butterfle base; sentiment sticker from stash.

Thanks for visiting :)

  14. Oooh, it's the quatrefoil die! Love how you used it here, with cutting the long edges off, and using it as a lattice for the vines. Good thing you kept the distressed base, it looks wonderful behind the die!
