Butterfly Panel Card

 Hi crafters!  Still working my way through the cards from my last show and thought another butterfly card would be nice.  You have seen this stamp on kraft card and done in blues and now in a white on white with a touch of silver.  I stamped my sentiment on coconut white card using a black archival ink pad.  Next, I embossed it with one of my new embossing folders called Quilted Flower.  I cut the piece into three panels and matted them with a soft silver ,matte card and added them to a larger piece of white card.  I stamped the butterfly from the Justrite stamp set twice.  First on to white card and I heat embossed it with silver shine powder, then onto vellum and I heat embossed it with white detail powder.  I cut both of them out by hand and layered them up.  I attached the two pieces at the body, leaving the wings free for movement and added flatback pearls to the body.  I used a swirly pearl as the butterfly trail going across all three panels.  It really is a very quick card and I finished it with a silver mat before adding my double white pierced mat layers.  Finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 8" in size.

I want to say a great big thank you as so many of you have purchased vouchers from Joanna Sheen for Nick and his craft club.  I have spoken with Joanna Sheen about the vouchers and she has told me that she usually does a handmade card to go with the vouchers and it costs her about £2 to do these.  Can you please let her know when you order the vouchers that it is for Nick so that she does not go through the time and trouble (and expense) of doing a handmade card for each of our vouchers.  After all, they are all going to one place so it is really a waste.  In order to not have any confusion though, I think it is best that we not burden her team with having to keep track of the vouchers for Nick.  It is easier if, once you receive them,  you post the vouchers to me at Creative Expressions headquarters and I will post them all together to Nick. {Please be sure to put my name on the envelope and just email me to let me know it is on the way.  I will need to collect them all by about the 15th of April at the latest to get them posted to him before I leave again for Florida  the following week.  Again, thank you so much for all your wonderful support!  I was able to add some pictures that Nick sent me of his very first meeting of the craft club.  As you can see, everyone from the village was enjoying the day, not just the kids!  I just love the last picture, she looks well chuffed with her creation!  All for now, Sue x

Norah McPhee said...

Good morning Sue and fellow Wilsonettes,
I love the beautiful butterfly with its transparent wings. The delicacy that you have got with the vellum top is lovely. I as you know a white on white lover of your beautiful cards and this is no exception as it is beautiful Sue. You bring out the best in us with your inspiration and fantastic talent, thank you.
The last time i seen a head square scarf being worn it was my nana when she was going to the shop or post office, as you never seen her outside without it. But it's the lady's rosy cheeks that i love as she has a cheery face but just needs to turn the corners of her mouth up that wee bit more. Isn't it great to see so many attending Nicks' class wonder, even older men are there which is great because then they don't complain to there wife about where she has been. I truly hope they will return although it might be a bit busier for Nick than first anticipated. The joy that crafting brings and the inspiration that comes to be used in other things is wonderful.
Daughter taking me into Stirling this morning to sort out Mother's Day, as she got me perfume that she liked but doesn't go well on me at all. She was trying to get me a new purse, one of those that has the doggy on it, but Deb's no longer deals with that brand. Why is it you tell tell them it doesn't matter and they just ignore you
I honestly would be happier with a wee bunch of cheap flowers, than something that i wont get the chance to use and it is all such a racket nowadays just to get money out of the bairns. What happened to a hand made card and a daffy from the garden or may be that was just my brother and me but i know the joy my mum had on her face on receiving it. Having a day off on Sunday would be worth more than any present could and be enjoyed to the max, no money needed.
We have a cold but beautiful day up here at the Ochils with every bit of the hills being seen in lovely technicolour with glorious blue skies. Oh how i love my view as they are so different each and every day. Hope all have a beautiful day and i will hopefully see you tomorrow.
Love and crafty hugs to all,
Norah (Glenochil)

It was good to see the photos of the good work Nick is doing. Hope to organise a voucher for him today.
I have used the three panel idea for some time and it always looks very effective when used with an attractive addition like your butterfly. I can see another of your embossing folders is on the Wish List.

Hello Sue. This card works so well with the three panels and that simple gorgeous butterfly. I am so glad that Nick is getting the support he obviously deserves. He must be a treat to have living amongst people who have never crafted before. Wonderful that your followers have risen to the challenge of helping him. Off to Joanna's site to do the same. xx Maggie (better without a bow)

Very pretty card Sue, that butterfly is a great focal point. Lovely to see Nick's villagers, they look as if they are very keen, which is great!

lilysmum said...

What a beautiful card, just what is needed to brighten up such a damp and dreary day. I have to say this is right up there on my faves list,the folder is definitely one to have and you certainly show us how to bring the butterfly to life. Wonder if the card would have the same affect if done in a different colour? I'm not so sure it would.
I would just like to say well done to everyone who is helping Nick, I bet he's blown away by your kindness. I have been giving to a local group of adults with learning difficulties for a few years now and they get great pleasure from crafting.

Brenda Lello said...

Hello Sue,
WOW what a stunning card - I love three panel cards, the addition of that butterfly on this one is gorgeous - it's really classy and tasteful, love the sentiment also.

Lovely to see the photos from Bulgaria, looks like Nick is doing a great job and I'm sure his group will grow as word gets around, so any help we can give him will be going to a very worthy cause.

Hope everyone has a lovely Mothering Sunday, I am off to make cards for our daughters, I have always given them a card since they became mothers - just feel it's a nice thing to do.

Hope everyone is having a good day, love Brenda xxx

This is a lovely card and the sentiment is lovely.
I do parchment craft work and butterflies always have another dimension with it.

Hi Sue,
Hi Everyone,
Today's card goes up among my favourite Sue Cards! Trouble is I have so many favourites. I had a butterfly afternoon yesterday! That stamp stamps and embosses beautifully! Even I can't muck it up! Will certainly give the white on white or cream on cream a go.
So pleased everything working out well for Nick - the photos are lovely! Simple pleasures mean even more when you dont have much I guess. So pleased we can help.
Have a lovely Mothering Sunday everyone! Hope you have a lovely family day if that's possible. If you are going to spend it on your own, lots of love x
Love to all, Myra

Hellooooo Sue and the Wilsonettes! Oooooo what can I say? Your two fers are absolutely gorgeous. There will be two lucky lucky ladies winning these! Pin it they will be! Loved the video Sue, it's so good to see them back. Todays card is beautiful. I love the white on white embossed, the three panels, matted and then the added butterfly on top. I love the touch of the velum butterfly that's embossed with white powder. It just looks stunning no matter what stamp is used. I have a cross which I do the same technique with and it looks lovely. (I'm doing some Easter cards at the moment!). Thank you Sue for showing the pictures of Nick's class. It's so lovely seeing the happy faces, young and old, enjoying themselves. The lady in the last picture was so lovely and like you said Norah, reminded me of our grans who wore the headscarf too! He's doing a fantastic job in neurturing future crafters. We all started somewhere and look how far we have come with wonderful teachers like yourself out there! I can't afford much but I hope whatever I do send will help a little bit. It will be before the 15th April though Sue xx Sending love and hugs to Pam, Tina, Norah, Steph, Margaret, Moyra P and all our Wilsonettes that need one too! Cameeli and all those who are meeting at the Rubberneck stall have a fantastic time!! Soooo excited for you all! Cameeli, keep up the good work but rest your knee too! As for cakes, biscuits, sandwiches and the rest of those sweet and sugary things, I can't be tempted as I'm lactose intolerant ......in one way I'm lucky, but then sometimes not. I save everybody the mither when we get invited out to parties.....I just take my own! Lol! Anyway, Take care everybody! "Thank you Sue" for your wonderful inspiration xxx Good luck to you all in the Wednesday twofer giveaway! xx Love Karen xx

Hi Sue, Today's Card is Awesome, I love your New Embossing Folders and I love how you've split your Card into three panels, I so Love The Fabulous Sentiment and that Truly Stunning JustRite Butterfly which I'm Lucky enough to own it looks just Beautiful Heat Embossed in White, to place The White one on top of another and just stick to Card down the Centre gives the feeling of Butterfly in Flight, yet another Truly Fantastic Card thanks for sharing.
Take Care Sue Love and Hugs from Sam x
To all the Fabulous Wilsonettes I do hope you're all well, Pam I hope you're ok hugs to you all from Sam x

Hi Sue. A lovely card today !! You just can't go wrong with a butterfly. I do not have the justrite butterfly stamp but it does look great and so does that lovely new embossing folder of yours Sue !! I love the white on white, the wonderful sentiment, and the touch of silver really makes the card.
Thank you for sharing this lovely card with us and showing the lovely photos of nick's craft club. Everyone looks like they are enjoying themselves.

Pam, and Tina, I am always thinking of you both and wishing you lots of love and hugs x x x
Hugs to any one else going though difficult times too.

Lots of love to Sue and all the Wilsonettes love Tres x x x
