Flutterby cards



Lots of flutterbies today (sorry Linds!).  I had a sympathy card to make, so I made 2 so that one of them can go in my box at hubby's work - I keep saying I'm going to stop doing this, weeks will go by without any cards selling and I start saying I'll have the box home, then about 10 cards sell in one week... so I carry on!

I've used the lovely papers from the Ella Blue pad by GCD Studios again, love these papers.  Cardstock is coredinations, butterfly is a Quickcuts die with big flat back pearls from my stash.  Sentiment is a Stampin' Up stamp I got as part of a magazine subscription gift ages ago.


Then, because I wasn't really in a colouring mood today (unusual for me!), I carried on with the butterfly theme but made a more cheerful card.  I used up some paper and cardstock from my scraps - paper is Papermania 'big one' with coredinations cardstock.  Used the same butterfly die, covered it with spray adhesive and coated it with glamour dust (I'm wondering if this might have been a mistake because it still feels slightly tacky!).  Added some little pink buttons from my stash and a Craftwork Cards sentiment to finish.

I'm entering my cards for the following challenges:

Hi Lisa,
Even with Flitty Flappys I love these cards. I really like the simple layouts which are so elegant and the papers are beautiful. Are you ok? Unlike you not to want to colour! I can't stop! No cards made but loads of images coloured. I'm off to my parents for a few days so i'll catch up with your lovely creations when I get back

Lin said...

Love these Lisa. I find it really difficult myself these days to make something so clean and elegant. Everywhere we look is the grungy, distressed, flower embellished creations and we tend to forget that clean and simple can really look gorgeous.
