Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you all had a lovely weekend, the weather was perfect for gardening, not so perfect for getting any crafting done though, it's so hard to sit in your stifling craft room rather than be out in the sunshine. We did have a bit more of a breeze yesterday which made it more bearable.
I thought I would have a go at a 'Clean & Simple' style card for my first 'Things With Wings ' card.
I die cut a 5 1/2 inch square base card, then cut a mat about 1/2 inch smaller, both cut with Creative Expressions Pierced Squares. As I was cutting the smaller piece I placed one of the butterflies from Sara Davies Vintage Collection 'Kaleidoscope of Butterflies ', I liked the delicate detail of this particular butterfly.
To add some colour behind the die cut I used a small piece of paper from the Clarity 'Indian Summer ' 8 x 8 Designer paper pad, making sure the piece covered the aperture and adhering into place, i then popped foam pads over the whole die cut square and adhered it go the base card.
To finish the card I replaced the butterfly into it's die cut aperture and added glue to fix it, I added another die cut butterfly on top so that I could lift the wings. I popped a diamante on it's head, gently lifted the wings and added the die cut 'With Love' to finish the card, I die cut the sentiment in white to keep the design as simple as possible.
I hope you like it and it inspires you a little.
I hope that you all have a lovely day, however you are spending it.
Love and hugs to all,
