'Kaleidoscope of Butterflies
Hello today's card is a Kaleidoscope of Butterflies.
I began with a white A6 card blank. Next I cut a mat slightly smaller than the card blank from purple pearlescent paper. This was adhered to the card blank and another mat was made from holographic mirror board, again slightly smaller than the previous one and adhered to the purple pearlescent paper. Then from a combination of white card stock, purple pearlescent card and purple vellum I die cut the butterflies using spellbinders Les Papillions die set and then layered them up to form different effects. Jewels and cosmic shimmer pearlised glue was then added to the centre of the butterflies and they were adhered to the card base. Next I die cut from white card and purple vellum two of the same shape from Spellbinders Ironworks Motif dies set. I then stamped the white shape with the sentiment from Particraft Butterfly 2 Stamp set and the flowers from Polkadoodles Magic Neighbours stamp set using distress ink dusty concorde. These were then layered up slightly off set and adhered to the card. Finally a double bow was created from pink and purple ribbon to finish off the card.
Happy Crafting xx Hazel
