Butterflies…

…anybody remember the TV series starring Wendy Craig?If you do you’ll probably have the theme tune running through your head right now!

Things with Wings is the theme at Craft Your Passion.We have the fabby Stitchy Bear Stamps and Letraset as our sponsors!Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card  I’ve used Butterflies in the Grass by Floppy Latte Designs from Stitchy Bear Stamps.They’ve been coloured with ProMarkers.To get a perfectly circular,freestanding card I die cut a circle card from a white card blank.The trouble with this is you don’t get a perfect circle because you have to allow for the fold in the card.So I cut an identical sized piece of card to fit over the top.To make it stand without tipping to one side I simply cut a sliver from the bottom of the back flap of the card making sure I stay in line with the original fold.I cut some freebie paper from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine to fit inside the cut and embossed frame.I adhered the ribbon,also part of the free gift,before I stuck everything down,adding the bow separately.I filled the centers of the flowers on the frame with some teeny gems.
