Well, we are 7 days into July, already. This month is flying by so fast and so is this year. Pretty soon we will be looking at Christmas cards and such. I already have a class scheduled this month for Christmas cards. I will be sharing those cards with you after the class is held.
Over at Craft-Dee BowZ, the theme this month for the designers is "Out of Shape - No Square or Rectangle Card". Boy that really opens the gates up pretty wide. Well I took the easy way out I guess. I made a circular easel card.
A few things you will see on this card are items I have had in my stash for a while but have never used, Time to get them out and use them.When I decided on a butterfly then a few things just came together.
Let me share with you this card:
Here is the card closed
And here is the card, opened
Here is a closer view of the inside sentiment.
A close-up of the bow.
I just made a double loop bow for this card..
I used two stamp sets from My Sentiments Exactly. I used the lines and swirls to make my background, it was perfect for the background. I also used another My Sentiments Exactly set for my sentiment and that smaller typed butterfly shape.
I have to address that large butterfly. That was made using a Tim Holtz die, Fanciful Flight. I also used some papers that I made a while back, using my Gelli Plate. After looking at the black cutouts of the butterfly wings, I thought of my Gelli Plate papers. Thought they might be the perfect paper to use as the background for the wings. Let me show you,
This is just a pull from left overs from other Gelli Plate designs.
This will make a great background for a card.
OK let me show you this paper with a wing sitting on it
If you move the wing around you will get a slightly different effect for the wing background.
So that's how the butterfly came to be.
OK all you Gelli Plate lovers start using those sheets you are hoarding.
