Butterfly Garden




Here is a simple card I created using rubber stamps and the Butterfly Garden border die from Die-Versions.  The background was created using a couple different background stamps from Impression Obsession and the little girl is a retired clear stamp from My Favorite Things, colored with Copic markers.  After spritzing white cardstock with Smooch Spritz (Vanilla Shimmer) for more shimmer, I die cut the Butterfly Garden border twice so I could fussy cut out a couple of the butterflies.  I bent the wings and adhered them directly to the background.


What gives this card a bit more interest is that I bowed the border to make it look like the little girl and her dog are sitting on a bolder surrounded by butterflies and flowers. Easy to do and it looks pretty good in person.

For more inspiration, be sure to visit the Die-Versions blog.

Anne, Love the paper you used for your background such a pretty color and all those beautiful butterflies. Awesome job coloring your darling stamped image. That sure did add a 3D look to your card when you bowed out the border. Really nice job.
