Butterfly Frame

My last card for these two challenges. Basically using the leftover frames from previous post.

Just Us Girls #531 – Trend Week

When I put these two leftover frames on my desk they ended up one on top of the other and I liked how they looked. After playing with them a bit I decided to add one square with the other on top like a diamond. Glued them to the gray Lawn Fawn cs which was cut at 5 1/2 X 5 1/2″. Decided that butterflies would look good with this and used two different sets (GKD & CTMH) plus a die to create them. It proved difficult to get the right shade of blue for the corner butterflies but I tried. I also had these silk flowers so I added them to the blue corners. One flower was too pale a yellow so I coloured it with a copic marker to make it darker. Think it is a bit too dark now, but don’t have any others to replace it. Added the die cut butterfly to the center. Don’t want to add a sentiment at the moment, but most likely it will become a birthday card.

  1. Gorgeous. I do believe this is my favorite of your square card challenge. Of course, I may have been swayed by the beautiful butterflies.

  2. Yes – well if your birthday hadn’t already happened this would be one I would choose for you. I know you love butterflies. I think the first one is my fave in this group.


    1. Thanks Lisa – I’ve had a good two days with creating so far. Managed to make about 6 cards and while my mind is occupied with that I don’t have time to fret.


  3. Glad you like it Judy. It has been fun playing around with various things these past two days. Probably tomorrow I’ll be spending some time outside in the garden as we have some nice weather for that at the moment.


  4. You sure hit this one out of the park! Love the layout and overall design of this card! So happy you joined us at Just Us Girls this week!

  5. Oh, this is beautiful! I love the way the frames look offset. Your yellow flower isn’t too dark, it’s a great contrast to the lighter yellow in the card. The flowers and butterflies are perfect for this look.
