Yep, we're yet another fortnight into 2012 and the new challenge is up. This time the theme is...
B for Busy Bugs!
And as the theme on the wedding invitations were butterflies, I thought I'd stick with that.
Here's my card:
No image! No colouring! I thought I'd make their names the focal point of the card. I printed out the names onto ivory stardream card, the font is Papyrus and I printed it out in brown.
The heart is a large Go Kreate heart frame die and the details are cut out with a spellbinders fancy tag. It looks a bit wonky in the picture but I think (and hope!) it's just because the the heart is at a jaunty angle and the ribbon curves down into the buckle. That's my story anyway!
The flowers and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I don't use the flowers very often but I think they went well with the style of this card.
The papers are from the Prima Printery collection and I distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink. The fancy corner is a Melissa Frances embellishment that I got from My Crafty Heart (some lovely things in stock there and really fast service!)
The butterfly, silver dangly heart, buckle and ribbon are all from a local craft supplier.
The inside of the card has been decorated like so...
A card with these sorts of embellishments needs a box, so I made one to match...
So that's my card and my butterfly!
