Gilded butterfly

Hi there. I haven’t posted for a few days, but I now have several days off work, with very little planned, so I should be able to find time to craft. The past few days I have been crafting, but have you had a time when you have so many ideas going round your head that you can’t actually settle on one thing? That has been me.

I started one idea for one card, then something distracted me and I went onto another card – I had four cards on the go at once…..but I didn’t know how I was going to finish any of them off.

Here is one I completed today:


A close up of the Butterfly:



I took some double sided sticky sheet and added some gilding flakes, then die cut the butterfly. The white embossing is a tonic die – I seem to be embossing dies at the moment – and put onto a gold card to tie-in with the butterfly.

Actually quite a simple card – but it seemed to take me forever to get my head around it!

I shall be entering the following challenges:
