My latest Project

This is my latest project. I applied for the free template over at Cards etc challege to make this lovely flower fold card. You have to commit to entering the challenge with the card you make with the template and have until 10th November to enter.

I have used the patterned paper from a 12 x 12 Papermania paper pad called temptations and die cut the large daisy flower (with three layers) on the front using a Sizzix daisy die and finished with a sparkly gem in the middle and stuck onto the front with a 3d foam pad. I also added Anita's silver glitterations around the patterned paper.

Inside I have used the same paper edged with glitterations on the octagon. I added 3 flowers and leaves cut using Marianne Design dies and added a gem in each, I also added the glitteration letter T to start the word Thankyou. On the petals I have cut the glitterations into small stitch size around the edges of the petals to create faux stitching. I have also added a letter onto each petal to spell out Thank you.

The image is a Karens Doodles digistamp which I have coloured in with Promarkers, I have added faux stitching around the image and then added glitterations around the edge of the image to create a frame then added the two 3d peel off butterflies.

If you haven't seen this before all you need is three of the same butterfly peel off, cut the antennae off two of them, the one that still has the antennae goes in the centre, bend the wings upwards and stick the right hand side of one of the others onto the sticky left hand side of the centre butterfly and then add the left hand side of the other butterfly to the sticky right hand side of the centre butterfly. You can then stick down onto your project with the remaining sticky sides. Hope that makes sense.
