Hi There – Happy Spring…
I love these vintage styled cards with butterfly designs – remind us of spring, right! I recently went to a card class at a local Scrapbook store and made some awesome cards using Hunkydory – Flight of the Butterfly card kits. The class was fast paced and fantastic – we made 29 cards in a few hours. With the “left overs” (from our generous store owner), I made another 31 cards!! I usually use more “handmade” techniques when I make cards. But these were so beautiful and vintage looking that I couldn’t resist. Here are a few of the cards I made at home with the remainder of my kit…
I have to say that butterflies are one of my favourite designs. I have a lot of butterflies in my studio – card stock, dies, stamps, art work, you name it. So I could not resist taking this butterfly card class. The background paper in this kit is to die for – check it out on Hunkydory.com. The cut-out sheets of sentiments and butterfly designs were easy to “make” the card. I loved the layering, using the copper glitter and gold foil card stock, it gave the cards lots of bling with a vintage tone. And to add dimension, I used foam tape – a lot of it! I hope the close ups help you see the dimension and depth of the cards – although much more dramatic in person I have to say.
If you are like me and make a lot of cards, it becomes expected from friends and family that they receive a hand made card (with love of course). But sometimes, life rushes along and you need a card like – now! So these quick cards will be perfect for those times when birthdays and holidays creep into my creative time.
Hope you enjoyed! Happy Spring! Val
