Butterfly Squares.

Hi there everyone,

I do hope you are managing to keep warm and snug during this cold spell we are having.   We still have lying snow, which I'm pleased to say is slowly shrinking lol!    It was so nice to see the sun today, although for a short time only.     

Tonight's card was made for Imagination Craft's  show on the Hochanda  TV channel last December.   As many of you may know, green is a colour I do not use very often but I was quite pleased with the result.   The Imagination Craft's rich orange oxidized Starlight Paint seemed to fit the bill perfectly a good colour combination I think.

Make an 8"x8" base card, by folding the white scalloped card down the centre crease line.   Put the front of the base card into  the  embossing folder and emboss.   Remove from the folder and rub small amounts of the bronze Alchemy Wax over the embossing to highlight the pattern.

Matt a piece of bronze coloured card to the front of the base card, leaving a half inch border of the embossed card showing.

Take the 'Summer Script Apple' patterned  card and lay the stencil on top, then spread the green Sparkle Medium over the design, using a metal spatula.   Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.   When dry, cut this into four equal squares and matt onto the bronze card, leaving a small gap between the squares.

Die-cut four butterflies from some spare bronze card, using the  Memory Box die and glue one in each corner, putting some silicone glue under the wings to lift them up a little.

Using the Spellbinder's flower dies, die-cut one of each size of flower.   Paint with the orange oxidized Starlight Paint from Imagination Crafts, 3D them using silicone glue.   Glue this flower to the centre of the base card.   Finally, glue three orange gemstones to the flower centre.

Well the card is now finished, a fairly quick and easy card to make.  Hope you like it.   Thanks for visiting my blog and I will catch you all again in a few days time.
