Butterfly Wishes


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week Anne Harmon continues to bring the challenges for the month.

This week Anne has given us a “White theme” …. There are 2.4 million June brides in America every year. It became known as the "marriage month" during the middle Ages - because - people were clean after taking their ANNUAL MAY BATHS!!!. Please make an all-white card.


For my card this week I decided to create an all white pivot card and used the Butterfly Pivot Card die set designed by Karen Burniston’s for Elizabeth Crafts Designs.

I cut a stripe of white card and embossed this using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Fleur de lis Embossing Folder.


I used one of the edge dies from the Agatha Edges die set to create the shaped edge and then used the flourish from this set to add the white flourish on along each shaped edge.

The middle layer on the pivot butterfly has been die cut using Elizabeth Craft Designs White Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz.

For the small butterflies around the card I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Butterfly Embossing Folder and then using the embossed card I die cut the butterflies using the Butterfly Accessory die set, how cool that this die set fits perfectly over the images on the embossing folder.


Here is a look at the back of my card.


And one final photo this time of the back view of my card when it is open.
