Butterfly Card 3

My 3rd card design using my stamped and coloured paper is one of the big square cards.

I cut a panel up into smaller squares, opened them up and layered them onto pearlescent cardstock then attached them to the base card.

Colour the edge of the card using an inkpad, I always use Versa Magic chalk inkpads to do this as they dry really quickly and give great results especially when I use Softies cardstock. Softies has a slight texture to it and it just looks gorgeous when you ink around the edge of the card.

Again I punched a circle and scallop circle from white cardstock and then coloured them using the same Copic pens as I coloured the butterflies with.

Wrap ribbon around the card, tie a double knot to secure and then add
the message attaching with foam pads.

So is this your favourite card so far? Card 4 tomorrow!

Hi Julie...what a simple technique but it creates a really great window effect. Those butterflies really looks like they are outside fluttering around! Lovely!
