Vintage Butterflies

Hi everyone,


Over the past few weeks there have been a number of challenges themed ‘fancy folds’ so I wanted to share with you a card I have made using the Joy Fold.


I used Pretty in Pink and Soft Suede card stock and some of the DSP from the Beau Chateau pack.  The stamp set used is the Creative Elements stamp set.


I love this very girly, soft and very versatile set, everything goes really co-ordinates so well.


I love my bling but I am also very fond of butterflies, to me I see their freedom, beauty and their daintiness.


The sentiment used is very wise - “Treat yourself like your own best company”, how true.  I am happy that I had another go at the vintage look and I have daubered a little of soft suede ink on the butterflies and the “create” words on the inside of the card.


I have also stamped the swirls/flourish image in Pretty in Pink ink on the Pretty in Pink card stock so you can faintly see it in the back ground.


Here is a few different views of my card:

Card: Pretty in Pink, Soft Suede, Whisper White

Accessories:  Large Oval Punch, Beau Chateau DSP, Daubers, Pretty in Pink 3/8” Taffeta Ribbon (retired), Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive
