Craftmad January Card Swap

Hi everyone, yes, I have been missing in action.  I think this will be the trend for me for the moment at least.  Only be  able to manage a couple of posts during the week and then hope to catch on everyones work on the weekends. :-)

This the second card I made for our Craftmad January Card Swap which had to use one or more dies.  I have used my Creatables butterfly on here which I cut out the butterfly shape from the green cardstock.  Then cut out a butterfly image from pink paper and inserted into the area on the green.  I used my Spellbinder Edgabilties along the bottom of the card added bling.  Also used the edgebilities on pink and white paper so that I could use the little butterflies on the card.  Layered up these wonderful paper flowers and added a bling centre.  Oh an more bling for the butterfly body.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful day whatever you have planned.  I am off to walk the dog and happy that the mornings are a little cooler these days.  


  1. This is a lovely idea how you used the butterfly.
