K and Company Blue Awning Collection, the Home Accents cartridge, and my love for butterflies

...were the motivation behind this card.


To see how this card is layered (K & Co Blue Awning layered over Bazzill) I added this shot of the back of the card (below). What I did was cut out a sheet of paper slightly smaller than the A2 card I started with, cut out a flourish from Home Accents, and used the negative of that image to layer over the cardstock. The cardstock was embossed with Cuttlebug. The front edge was punched with Martha Stewart's border punch (rather one of them) and the back edge was cut with one of Fiskars mini scallop blades. The butterfly is Cuttlebug and the flowers are Plantin Schoolbook, George, and a fabric flower from a candle ring I got on sale at Wal-Mart for $3! The cream paper lace is Creative Imaginations Narratives Collection. The thank you plate is Making Memories.

I liked this flourish on Home Accents because it kind of went with the curves/flourishes of the paper it was being cut from.


Now this card was inspired by my love for Little Yellow Bicycle's Vita Bella collection. As you can see, flowers & butterflies seem a must lately. The paper ribbon on this one is also from Creative Imaginations. The cardstock strip that has the arguile embossing with a watermarking pen glossed over it is some smooth cardstock I had left over that frankly, I'm not sure where it's from. The other strip of paper on the card is edged with the Martha Stewart border punch; it's just more from the same sheet of paper I used to make the card. The butterfly is Home Accents cart and the flowers are Plantin Schoolbook & George.
