Hooked On That Butterfly

I couldn't resist making another card using the gorgeous butterfly from All A Flutter. This one is pretty much a case of Teneale's beautiful blue one we made at class a couple of weeks ago (see her post here) but I've used the Razzleberry/Orchid/Olive combo that is so popular.

I was in two minds about doing the inside, but then was pretty much forced to as I've got so many layers on the front (six layers!) that the card was very "front heavy" and inclined to fall over, LOL! So here's the inside of the card:

I left the middle area clear for the card to be written in. As you can see from the top photo, there are a number of layers to the butterflies. First I stamped them directly on to the white card (to get the antennae bit so I didn't have to cut them out!), then added a second layer that were coloured in and adhered flat, then a third layer (also coloured) which are just attached at the body so that the wings can sit up a little. It looks totally GORJUS in real life if I do say so myself!

I know my ladies will want to make this one as they dropped hints today about butterflies. Maybe next class if they are good, LOL!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you are having a great week and keeping warm.

Kez this is so very elegant and so very pretty. Class all the way. Love the combo and the 'sketchy' background is so subtle. I can u'stand why the b'fly is so addictive. ooxx
