Dreamy butterflies

4 CC Golden Egg Award

I'm here with my Tutti Designs card today.
As it's been so cold and snowy over here I thought I would cheer myself up
with nice warm colours and pretty butterflies and what better way than using this
gorgeous die

I went with an a5 size card as I wanted to use two strips of my butterfly die.

I cut them out using this lovely pink card (looks a bit darker in photo though).

I made a dreamy background on watercolour card using some watercolour pens and glycerine.

I adhered my two butterfly strips to the background and added a thin strip down each side.

I then stamped a greeting in the centre of the strip, stuck to my main card and
stamped a small sentiment, repeatedly along both sides in matching ink.

I cut my butterfly strip again in white card (twice) but this time I just snipped
the butterflies away from the strip to use separately, shaping the wings to give dimension.

I adhered the white butterflies on top of their co-ordinating pink butterfly.
I then added pearls between the side panel stamping
and finished with a white organza bow.

Hope you like it!

If you like this die then pop over and treat yourself
as it's on offer at the minute!
