Hi there crafty friends! Pretty pastel butterflies today. They just sort of take your blood pressure right down by looking at them, don't they! So calming. I was very impressed with this set of butterflies called Les Papillons, I didn't want to stop using them. They are a perfect size I think, large enough to be focal and small enough to be an extra embellishment. I embossed my coconut white card using the Awesome Blossoms embossibility folder. I cut away randomly at an angle going up from the right to the left side. I stamped another piece of white card with my sentiment and clear embossed it. Using Spun Sugar, I lightly inked that corner with my sentiment. I taped the two pieces together to form my background. I cut both styles of the butterflies several times for this one, using varying pastel shades for my background butterflies. All the top lacy parts were cut in white so that I could even tone down the pastel colours even further. I glued the pieces of my butterflies together only in the centre, leaving their wings to move independently. I attached them to my card with glue dots a slightly varying angles, but just on the edge of my cut line going up. I pierced around the edge of the card to complete it for a really quick card.
