Lavender Butterfly


Card/Paper: Mellow Moss, Lavender Lace, Whisper White
Ink: Mellow Moss, Lavender Lace
Stamps: Touch of Nature
Other: 1/4" Gross Grain Ribbon, Flat Backed Pearls, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder, Nestability Squares

Method: Cut out square of white and stamped with butterfly and fern leaf. Put back through Cuttlebug to emboss the edge in the Nestability. Mounted on white square of next size up, and drew a line around the edge of the smaller square with marker. Slightly distressed edges of larger square. Embossed lavender card with Swiss Dots. Randomly stamped green card with fern leaf. Used a piece of scrap paper behind to stick the two pieces of card butting up together, then tied knot in ribbon and wrapped short ends to the back of the card and glued in place with snail adhesive. Fixed this background to the white card body - A6 size. Added butterfly image and three flat backed pearls to finish.
