Butterfly Trails

 Good morning all!  I love playing with butterfly dies as there is just so much fun stuff you can do with them.  Whether it is cutting them out of sheer vellums or kraft card, layering them up or using decorative papers, there are always a bunch of different looks you can achieve.  Here I was having a bit of fun with the butterfly trail.  Why not use tiny flowers to create the trail?  I love the way this looks!  Definitely a clean and simple style card, but so easy, quick and pretty so it ticks all my boxes (sorry no ribbon as that would have just been wrong on this one!).  I simply started with a piece of coconut white card that I stamped my sentiment in the corner.  A little tip that I have found helpful is to start with a slightly larger piece than I need.  The reason for this is that I then have a bit of an allowance if I stamp my sentiment askew (as I often do!),  I can trim my card to make my sentiment straight.  I used the butterfly From Les Papillons and cut an aperture in my card.  I used 3D foam pieces on the back of my card to raise it for dimensions.  I cut a piece of black and white patterned paper so it showed through my aperture and mounted my white background piece over it.  Next I cut an assortment of sizes of the flowers from the Cherry Blossom die set in blush card.  This is an incredibly versatile set and I have used it for so many other things besides the obvious. I used my stylus and a foam mat to give the flowers a bit of shape and definition.  I glued them into place in the form of the butterfly trail down the card from the aperture to the sentiment.  I added a tiny 3mm pearl to the centre of each of them.  I double matted the card and finished the edges with black PVA glue dots.  So simple!  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.
  I have a bit of bad news though as we didn't reach our target of 400 comments on Tuesday's card.  A wonderful effort (around 275 comments!) and I truly enjoyed reading all your lovely comments.  There is good news however. Since both Monday and Tuesday there were over 200 comments, we have two extra days that qualify for more winners on Sunday's comment game!  Right now, there will be 9 winners' names drawn.  Anytime there are over 200 comments, I draw another set of three winners on Sunday so if you want to increase your chances of winning, don't forget to leave a comment!  All for now, Sue x

Good morning, Sue
How fun is this card? At first I thought it was a trail of butterflies, what a surprise to see the flowers. Inspired for sure, thanks you.

Good Morning, Sue,
Hope all is well with you.
To-day's card is so sweet and congures up our hopes of future days of sunshine; roll them up, I say, after many months of rain, rain and more rain.
I agree that the Cherry Blosson die
is so versatile, and using the blossom as a trail behind the butterfly is a lovely idea.
Thank you as always for your daily sunshine sent our way.
Hugs, Lis x

Morning Sue. Love the simplicity and elegance of this card, a reasonably quick hit for those of us who have to snatch time to craft in our busy lives.( and share the dining room table). I might have to have a go at this card later today. Ju

Bote Da Sue, What a beautiful card today, No now, I do agree it would be too much. I love this card. You have done some fabulous cards lately, fantastic Sue. Where do you get these ideas from. I would love to spend a day with you, or even a couple of hours. Would you like to come and visit me in Wales please? Sue you are simply the best for me. x x

Annie said...

Hi Sue Absolutely delightful! It's so light and pretty. I love it and it's just what I needed this wet and very windy morning! As silly as it sounds I feel better after looking at it It reminded me that beautiful little things out there are hibernating and waiting for the right time to burst into life. The flowers are so simple but so powerful in their statement. Love it! Thank you!! Hugs Annie x

Lacelady said...

This card is a stunner - so effective, and yet simple. You are right not to have put a bow on it, it didn't need it.

Michelle said...

Morning Sue, this is such a pretty card, the flower trial is beautiful and you are so right about it not needing a ribbon. The sentiment is so true, I love it. Thank you for sharing.

I started a blog quite a while back so that I could show my work but to be honest I don't know where to start, I think it is nerves that is holding me back. I would love advice from any of the lovely ladies on here who blog or yourself as to how and where to start. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.

Heather said...

Oh Sue! This is such a pretty card very delicate yet simple for us to do. I really like the flowers in the butterfly's 'jetstream' LOL! I don't know what else to call it except perhaps her 'wake' but that sounds as though she has left devastation behind her! ROFL!

Crafty Hugs as always

This is just my kind of card - clean and simple but oh-so-pretty! I can see me making this over and over again for all kinds of occasions just by varying the sentiment.

Michelle said...

Heather if it is myself you are referring to I am sorry you feel that way. I just thought that any of the ladies on here who are bloggers would be able to help me and give me advice. I am certainly not trying to advertise anything. After all I have always found the crafting community to be so helpful to each other and all I was asking for was a little help. I just don't know where to start blogging. So please do not take offence at my asking for help and I truly am sorry that you feel that way.

What a beautiful and exquisite card this is. It's beautiful. I love butterflies and am always looking for new ways to put them on my cards. I love the delicate small blossoms as a trail.

Sue do you know where they sell craft metal? I live in Worcester city but do buy stuff online, I can't get it anywhere here. I'd like to use it on my cards using the cog dies and with M-bossability folders.

Thank you for your inspiration and for such a wonderful card today,

A beautiful elegant card. What a lovely use of the Cherry blossom die. Think I might have to buy this die.

Simply beautiful card Sue! I love the flower trail and the tiny pearls in the flowers. That print looks amazing behind the butterfly!

Hi Sue, what a lovely simple card and so original. I look forward to your card each day and cant believe I have been missing this site for so long. I love all the cards you make with the ribbons and pearls but think the butterfly trail is super.

Hi Sue what a lovely simple pretty card today. I love the cards you make and look forward to the new one each day. Just glad I found your site at last. I love the cards with the ribbon and pearls but you make so many different ones its difficult to choose a favourite.

Hi Sue! I didn't realise I hadn't checked your blog for three days, so let the side down!!! My only excuse is my illness has flared up again, so I'm away with the fairies!!! Three very different cards, but all inspiring!! My favourite has to be today's, because the use of the flowers as the trail is so pretty!!! I love the red one too, because it is striking!!! You always amaze me with your buckles, and you've excelled yourself on the previous day's card. I'm taking your advice and cutting out my dies so I have a good selection to play with. Thanks again!!!

Hi Sue absolutely beautiful and simple card, the idea of the cherry blossoms is a lovely idea. This time there is now need for a bow.

All the best Edwina

Such a pretty card! I love how the butterfly is die cut and how the background shows through it! I love the little flowers, like a cloud trailing after the butterfly!

This is a pretty card and shows the cherry blossom die off beautifully. x

Hi Sue,
Gorgeous card and such a clever idea with the trail of flowers.
I really, really want one of the butterfly die sets, but can't decide which. You were absolutely right not to put a ribbon on this one.

Hi Sue, I truly love this fresh and pretty card, the flowers on the background paper match really well with the cherry blossom die-cut flowers, and those are stunning as the butterfly trail.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi - a lovely card, I like the simplicity of it and would love to see more ideas with the flower set so I can justify buying it!
Thanks so much for all the inspiration.
