Joy with Butterflies - Winnie & Walter

Hi, Friends.....

I am glad to be back in crafting mode after my big Cat Lovers Hop! Did you take part? We had a wonderful time....and already have next year's Hop in the works. If you want to help in the planning process, I welcome your input. PLEASE CHECK THE WINNER'S POST TO SEE IF YOU HAVE AN UNCLAIMED PRIZE AWAITING YOU!! <3

Today, I am sharing a card I made for the Winnie & Walter - October Color Combo Challenge. There are still few days left, so I hope you will join us!!

I have a super-abundance of leftover patterned paper strips that are 3-1/2" wide from notecard sets I make for gifts. These scraps are perfect for making tall format sized cards that fit standard business sized envelopes or ones I make myself. :)

I went a little bit shabby on this card with a doily, vellum and frilly ribbon. The butterflies and glittery cardstock add a romantic touch that makes this card suitable for any occasion, including a bridal shower or wedding.

double layered the diecuts for a shadow effect, reversing it on the butterflies. The tiny butterfly die cuts are one of my favorite things to make from the odd bits leftover on diecut negatives.

I sponged the edges of the patterned paper with Distress Ink to pull in another color from the Challenge palette.

Supplies used include:
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Joy Cutaway die
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (butterflies and scalloped vellum rectangle)
DCWV glittered cardstock scraps
Distress Ink - Wild Honey
Doily from stash
Vellum from stash
Shimmery Crinkle ribbon from DL.ART
Sequins - a bonus gift in a Winnie & Walter order! <3
Silver Adhesive Rhinestones from my stash (for butterfly bodies)
Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you enjoyed seeing my card.

  7. Oooh, that crinkle ribbon bow is so yummy and I love the coordinating salmon colored sentiment. The vellum panel softens your patterned paper and doily for an ethereal look that really adds to the romantic look.

  8. Very pretty! I remember that butterfly paper, i had it a long time ago. The arrangement and bow is so pretty. Thanks for your entry to CraftyHazelnut’s Patterned Paper challenge!
