Good Butterfly Luck

Hello everyone,

Today's post is yet another in the latest series of general masculine and feminine cards I've been working on.

The printed paper is the Best of K&Company layered on Stampin' Up Ruby Red.  The sentiment is Waltzingmouse Say It With Style stamped in Ruby Red on Recollections Vanilla.  The ribbon is American Crafts.  The butterflies were punched in Ruby Red with an EK Success punch.  The embellishments are Mark Richards 3mm gold metals.

I really loved this sheet of paper when I saw it as a 12X12 but it was a lot harder to work with than I imagined.  There are a wide array of colours so it took some work to find something to choose.  I hadn't originally planned to use ribbon but I thought the solid contrast was needed.  I originally planned three butterflies - there is actually one under the sentiment.  Using three butterflies made sentiment placement tough.  Anyway, regardless of the challenges, I'm pretty pleased with the results.

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

  1. You really made that paper work for you. I like your end card design. Sometimes those big sheets are so wonderful to look at but then so hard to work with.
