I was asked the other day to make a very pretty card that featured butterflies, and it had to be A4 size. After an initial panic about the size of it, this is what I came up with. (See Terri, I CAN do pretty!!!)
I created a little scene by first stamping swirls around one corner. I then printed off the flowers onto pearl card, cut & shaped them and glued them into position over the swirls. I then punched the butterflies out of some glittered hand made paper that I have just found, glued these on and attached pearls to their bodys. After stamping the sentiment at the top I turned my attention to the main butterflies. To make these I stamped and heat embossed them onto parchment paper. One is stamped white with white EP while the other is stamped in white with hologram EP. I then embossed them both with a ball tool. (This took me ages to do as I have a problem with the ligaments in my hands which means I cannot work the ball tool for longer than five minutes at a time before my hands are in too much pain, unfortunately this problem meant I had to give up doing bigger pieces which I loved to do). Never mind, at least I managed these. I added small pearls to their antennae and attached them with silicone glue.
I gave my customer the card this morning and she was thrilled to bits with it.
