Peek Of The Week - Red Admiral Butterfly

For today’s Peek Of The Week I want to share with you a multi-purpose card with a butterfly theme.

This doesn’t happen often, but on this occasion as soon as I saw this beautiful Butterfly die from Tattered Lace I instantly pictured the card I wanted to make with it.



After selecting a backing paper with a butterfly theme, I found a co-ordinating mat layer and put these both onto a seven inch square card base.  I managed to create the faux border with a really fine black liner pen.

I cut the main die four times; black, white, pink and green, and paper pieced it together as you can see in the picture. 

I added an additional butterfly on top of the card, both for added dimension and also to create a focal point… hopefully when you look at the card your eye will be drawn first to this butterfly before taking in the finer detail around it.



In case you were wondering, the ‘Beautiful’ sentiment comes from the ‘Style Sentiments’ die set.  




All that was needed then to finish off the card was a few pink flowers… after all, if you don’t have flowers you won’t attract butterflies!
