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?
These are soooooo sooo beautiful. I just LOVE butterflies and use them on all my work all the time, and your cards here are simply amazing and really gorgeous. Stunning work, that is totally blown of by using these amazing papers for them too. Just fabulous in any way.
