Just Because

Hello bloggers!  I started with a piece of white card and used the Decorative Borders set to cut a pattern into all four sides of the card.  I cut four thin strips of black card and glued them across the back of the card down the centres of the decorative borders.  I cut four slightly wider pieces of lilac card and glued them over the rest of the four borders.  I cut the Butterfly Rectangle Frame out of lilac and black card.  I used the black die cut as a shadow behind the lilac die cut. I glittered the lilac frame with Frosted Sparkle Glitterbitz.   Using the Just Because Block Sentiment, I cut it out of lilac card and black gloss card.  I matted the lilac die cut with a slightly larger piece of white card, then used the words from the Black Gloss card and paper pieced them back into place.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue,

A lovely card. The way you have cut the borders and placed different coloured card behind is amazing. The butterfly border is so pretty and the colours are gorgeous.

Hi Sue. Love the Butterfly frame on today's card. It is so nice to see butterflies being used as the main image on a card for a change rather than just using one as an embellishment or to cove up a mistake!

Good Morning Sue. I love that this one can be used for any occasion you want it to be. It's a very lovely card. And may be if it's for a man darker colours and a noble Happy Birthday would just do the trick. One I will definitely be trying out.
Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds
Please stay safe and well 🙏 everyone

Hi Sue
Happy Wednesday everyone x
The lilac and black is so striking. Not a colour combination I think I’ve ever used. It’s gorgeous. Your butterfly rectangle frame is beautiful. Sundays card used the same frame but how different they look - so versatile x
Take care one and x
Sending you all positive thoughts x

Hi Sue, apologies for being so late. I love this beautiful card and white, lilac and black is a favourite combination. I must take another look at the Decorative Borders, I really like what you have done here with this one.

I love this card. So many beautiful details. The black and lilac pattern around the Butterfly Rectangle frame is that extra detail to make this card even more beautiful. Love it.
