I love it when I find a great idea for a card that I can tweak and make my own (with so much amazing talent and inspiration out there… its nice to have some brilliant ideas to start from!)
Well, today’s card came from a mass-produced card I saw probably 9 months back. I wish I had saved the original photo so I could say where exactly it was from – but since I took way longer to make my version than I expected, I’m totally drawing a blank. So, let me describe what I saw – it was a simple white card with butterfly wings partially cut out of the white cardfront and a solid color showing through under the wings. The wings were still attached to the cardfront, they just were bent up for dimension.
I thought it was one of the prettiest cards I had seen in a while!
However, I couldn’t figure out how to make a card with partial cut-outs on my cardfront, so I went with the next best thing – Framelits!
Yep! I placed my Hearts framelits in the middle of the page and cut out my hearts. Then I adhered a piece of Island Indigo cardstock behind my Whisper White card front. Crease the hearts and adhere the creased line to the Island Indigo paper to make the heart line back up.
I bent up the edges and added some Dazzling Details to the centers of each heart to add a little sparkle. So you get the peek-a-boo effect with the Island Indigo below the hearts.
Add some ruffled ribbon and a tag made with the Jewelry Tag punch and Tiny Tags stamp set, and you have a pretty card that would be perfect for a wedding or anniversary.
It also looks like a lot of work, but actually, aside from waiting for the Dazzling Details to dry, it is pretty easy!
Oh, and if anyone figures out doing this with butterflies, please let me know because I’d love to try it!
