Out of chaos came.....

Yesterday my friend Terri and I had a crafting session and as you can see we are not the tidiest of crafters. But, out of the chaos came these little beauties...

On the left is Terri's card and on the right is mine.

On the left is Terri's box and on the right is mine.

A closer look at my card.

My butterfly box.

I said there would be more of these butterflies, they are so gorgeous and fun to play with. They are done with 'The Flight Of The Butterfly' stamp set and punch from SU. The flowers on the card are a digi download that was printed onto pearl card to give them a sheen. A punch was used to make the buckle out of mirri card and the greeting was stamped and heat embossed.

The boxes were originally brown cardboard which were first painted with acrylic paints and then decorated. The base of mine has gold organza ribbon around it with tiny stamped butterflies and paper roses on top. The lid is edged with lace and on the top is a large rose with glittered petals. I have added a glittered, stamped butterfly to the top of the rose and placed punched gold pearl leaves under it. We finished them off by putting a small Easter egg inside.

As you can see Terri did hers slightly different from mine. She placed pearls around the middle of the bottom of the box and only one flower. On top she had more flowers. Her card is also slightly different as well. It is nice that we each put our 'own stamp' on them, don't you think? We both had a great time making these!
