3D Butterfly Birthday

This week the challenge on Arty Girlz challenge #33 is '3D' ~ Thank you to Jane who suggested that great theme. Keep the suggestions coming in everyone as Arty Girlz intends to be around for a long time ;)


I needed a birthday card that had either green or pink on. Spoilt myself to some Laura Ashley goodies and find both colours. The Butterfly has been stamped three times and hand cut to layer and make 3d, I used thinner foam pads which is just as effective! I went over the finished butterfly with glitter pen. I put a little bit of flock on the leaves but it doesn't show up very well (they feel nice though)

I created the scallop card with my nestabilities large square, and made another felt corner, it comes out so pretty. Sorry pictures aren't very good!

Materials:
Paper: Laura Ashley contemporary, black & white card stock
Die's: Cuttlebug corner, nestabilities Ovals, squares
Stamps: PTI Butterfly Kisses, Laura Ashley clear stamp.
Ink: Colourbox fluid chalk ink pink pastel & olive pastel, versafine onyx black
Other: Pink felt & stitched ribbon from stash, double sided adhesive sheet, glue pen, foam pads.


Thanks for stopping by, I will hopefully have more to upload soon! HuGs Kim x

I love pink and green together. I don't mind be corrected, but I believe that pink and green are the colours of the heart.
The design of your card is beautiful.

Hello darling,

Love your paper babe page. Its so lovely to read and see all your amazing cards.

I love the green and pink butterfly one and as you know green is my favourite colour I was hoping it would be my birthday card!

Everyone in ibiza loves your cards, its so hard to find any cards here. Was thinking I should sell them in the hotel!

Sending love and hugs
