Welcome, dear Maja Fans, to the blog today 🙂

The summer break in Poland is coming to an end, tomorrow a new school year begins…and so to keep up the good spirits I thought of making some cards using the butterfly motif, as butterflies always seem so optimistic to me 🙂 They are the kind of easy, simple cards you can whip up in a couple of minutes (of course, they took me MUCH longer but then I am an extremely slow scrapper 😉 ):


For this card I chose very light background papers so that the gorgeous intricate die cut butterfly is well visible:


As I die cut the butterfly from flowery patterned papers, I cut it twice and layered so that it pops out from the background even better. Then I added crystals on the wings and body and some liquid pearls around it for more lightness:


The other card is more vivid in colours as it has my most favourite roses paper for the background 🙂


I repeated the flowers in the dimensional form around the chipboard window with the butterfly button. As a finishing touch I added some splashes in golden glitter ink:


Here’s the list of supplies:

Other: dies: Sizzix, Rosy Owl; chipboard: Scrapiniec, Wycinanka; button: Lemoncraft; glitter ink: 13@rts; crystals, flowers, string: my stash


And what’s your foavourite motif to cheer you up?
