Big On Butterflies

Hello everyone,

Today's 'get well' card is also for my stash and challenged me from the get go.

The printed paper is My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up "Day" Butterflies layered on Close To My Heart Hollyhock and Olive.  The background is Stampin' Up Butterfly Collection Jumbo Wheel rolled in Hollyhock ink.  The butterflies were die cut with Sizzix Embosslits Beautiful Wings in Hollyhock and Olive.  The hemp is of unknown origin.  The embellishments are Want 2 Scrap Say It With Pearls.

Could there be any more butterflies on this card?  I've had this wheel for eons but just never managed to get any experimenting with it.  This is a goofed, cover-up card.  Even though I used my wheel guide, I managed a really obvious 'smoosh' with the impression, thus the split placement of the printed paper.  So frustrating, especially after the Swallowtail incident a few days ago.  This is one of those cards where I just seemed to have to keep adding elements before I was even nominally pleased with the results.  Notwithstanding the 'smoosh', I think this wheel has some wonderful possibilities.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.

  1. Lots and lots of butterflies on this! I think it all worked out in the end even though this sounds like it was a very frustrating card.
