Bright Cascading Butterflies :D


A lovely bright duo of Birthday cards using the fab Cascading Butterflies Die from Sue Wilson and Creative Expressions! I LOVE the way you can get just the butterfly apertures using the detail butterfly die by itself :D :D :D

A really simple and fun design for a card :D This is such a fun design, because you can literally create whatever wacky background you want, and then simply add your aperture over the top :D I decided to do some ink blending and add some coordinating coloured stamping over the top to give a gorgeous and bright ombre look, but this would also be fab over the top of a Gelli Print or a watercolour wash, or even a patterned paper which you could cover in glitter or clear micro beads etc there are so many variations :D For the orangey yellow card I simply used just the aperture from the inside die from the set, and for the tealy purple card, I used the outside die to create my aperture, then I added some of the detail butterflies back in (and I actually used the ones I'd cut out of the other card, so no waste either when you made both versions :D) I then simply added my sentiment and a scattering of coordinating coloured Nuvo Drops (which as usual I have already pre-made and stored in little pots for convenience :D)
