BBTB2 BUTTERFLY CHALLENGE
Over at BBTB2 this week our Design Team member Lori chose the gorgeous butterfly cut from Once Upon A Princess Cricut cartridge. I don't own this cart so I made my card using the butterfly cut from my Picturesque cart ( another cart I had to have and not used!! are any of you out there like this?lol YES I hear you say!)
I started out with a 6x6" card blank which I cut down by about 1 1/2 ". I purchased some fabulous new digi papers from my favourite site Pink Petticoat yesterday and thought they would make a lovely background for the butterflies.The download is brand new in the shop and is called Perfect Papers and is only £2.49 for 24 papers! I printed out 2 of the papers and adhered to my card. I cut a black strip card and punched with my Fiskars Apron Lace border punch. I then added 2 thin strips of the very sticky double sided tape on to the strip and ruffled some seam binding ribbon (which I got from Ribbon Girl ) across. I then inked around the edge of the card with an aqua blue chalk ink. Finally for my butterflies I used Making Memories shimmer paper from a 12x12 Slice pack and they are cut at 1 1/2" and 1 1/4".To finish off I added some Prima bling which I coloured black with a black permanent marker.
