The current letter on the alphabet Butterfly Challenge over on Mrs A´s blog is "C is for Corners", so we are asked to make something using a butterfly of course, and also one or more decorative corners.
For my card I wanted to try out a new Memory Box die called Waltzing Butterflies, but although i had several corner dies to choose from them, most of them looked to heavy when used alongside this very delicate die cut. In the end I chose an element from a collection, but I am afraid I do not know what it is called. It is an older one that I had before I became more careful at storing and naming them.
I looked through my digital paper collection and chose one from a set just called Blue and Brown, from The Paper Shelter, and printed out a sheet of it. I intended to use it on a brown base card, but I only had one sheet of the right shade of brown card to match the butterflies on the paper, so I used a plain white base card and cut a brown mat, and then a layer of the printed paper. This left me with enough brown card to cut the butterflies and two corners.
I wanted to put something behind the butterfly wings to make them the focal point of my card and I was pleased to find the solid butterfly die "Asti" also from Memory Box, just fitted the ones in my new die. So I cut it out twice using some very ancient (at least 25 year old!) interference paper. It is white shot with blue and went perfectly with my card.
I then glued the layers together and added some equally ancient shiny flowers in the corner, and a few gems to give it some bling.
I have not added a sentiment at the moment as I can then use it for whatever occasion I need it for.
So I now off to link up with Mrs A´s blog, with 24 hours to spare this time!!
