moment I saw this week’s CASE study, I knew I wanted to create a card with
butterflies. I also had to resist the
urge to buy a new set of butterfly stamps just for the occasion! My stamp collection seems to be severely
lacking in the butterfly department! Years
ago I picked up a paper packet at Hobby Lobby with a butterfly theme. BINGO, great butterflies do exist in my
stash! Here is the card inspiration from
card was created by Agnieszka
Malyszek. I loved the butterflies, woodgrain texture, the lace, tag embellishment, well….all of it! I captured many of the elements in my card.
I added butteflies, lace, and the woodgrain texture to my tag.
I used a variety of supplies:
Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
D1477 Universal Backgrounds
Inspiration Paper Packet-The Paper Studio
X5643 Chocolate Cardstock-CTMH
1388 Colonial White Cardstock-CTMH
Z2111 Chocolate Ink-CTMH
Z2211 Chocolate Reinker-CTMH
Antique Linen Distress Stain-Ranger
Old Paper Distress Stain-Ranger
Z1732 Seam Binding Ribbon-CTMH
Lace Trim-Reasonable Ribbon
Design Tips- I colored my seam binding ribbon with chocolate reinker. I colored my lace trim with a combination of Antique Linen and Old Paper Distressing Ink. I cut the tag shape with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and then stamped with the woodgrain background.
