Swirls and Butterflies

Anything Goes Embossing With A Twist of BUTTERFLIES

2nd image at slightly different angle

This is my second entry into the CYHTP challenge. I used a pre-embossed piece of card stock with a shimmery finish and a Darice Folder which I embossed over the top of the other. I swiped an ink pad, ‘Tattered Rose’ to add a small amount of colour. Then I cut around the outside of the frame so it could be mounted onto the usual A2 size CS. The large butterfly is one from MFT but I chose not to do any stamping and instead used a PP with a slight pattern to it. Using the same PP I cut some small butterflies to use as well. The folder butterflies have some tiny gems added to give them a defined body and I added a few gems to the large butterfly too. The sentiment is the same as on my previous card and in this case I added it so it would look as if the butterfly was trailing the sentiment. It sparkles more in reality than it does in the photo.

Thanks for sharing some time with me today.

  1. I like the double embossed panel. It has a lot of interest and they folders work well together. I think I may have that butterfly folder too. Love the added buterflies….but then again love any butterfly.

    1. Thanks a lot. I enjoyed playing in the challenge and it forces me to dig out my folders which don’t get used nearly as much as they should be.


  2. Thanks Golda. I’ve seen a few samples of cards using that folder so the bling on the butterflies is from something I’ve seen for sure.
