I made seven cards today, and would describe it as my Purple Period.
I had three ‘gate cards’, ie, those that fold to the centre, and to be honest, I have never really been happy with them. The original trimmings I thought would be suitable were actually too wide so it has been a case of trial and error when I’ve felt in the mood, but they seemed to work today.
As you can see, butterflies have crept in to my design!
I also experimented with some left over coloured card and a topper, adding my own gold butterfly to compliment the one alongside the bird.
The card on the left has butterflies cut out along the edge, but there were only four in the pack and this is the only one I’ve used so far. This is a cropped shot of it and I think it’s quite pretty.The other two I made were for Christmas and the Santa has some of the new trimmings I bought the other day on it.
Not a bad morning’s work.
