Butterfly Challenge Card

This card is for the Embellish Magazine colour challenge of kraft, sea foam, peach and cream with a quirky, cute style and Unscripted Sketches Challenge #69 with a piggy back challenge  to use anything except the typical punched flower!

I can’t believe I played in both challenges and neither have expired yet! I am always playing challenges and forgetting to enter my link in the challenge. Everything is pretty easy to figure out but I did have an interesting way of doing the clouds.

I wanted the clouds to puff up but still appear to come from behind the cut outs. At the same time, I didn’t want the paper to be puffy around the edges. So I cut the clouds using the die and I cut the shape out of the paper also. Then I stretched the fluffy cloud stuff, natural cotton quilt batting, so it went just under the edges of the paper and I put score tape all around the die cuts to they would stick down well. I got just the look I was going for.

Enjoy, Rebecca

I love butterflies, but I really like how you did the clouds. You are really good at cards Rebecca.

I really do like the puffy but controlled clouds you've created. I also like the pearls on the butterflies as they add a touch of class. :)
