Butterfly Basics for Colour Q

Hi there.  I'm really lovin' the holiday break as I am finally getting a chance to play with a few new goodies and join in with a challenge or two.

I'm doing a bit of a catch up on cards and this one's for my mum.  I had the idea for a card design so went looking for a colour combo and decided on the palette at Colour Q.

 
 
Here's a mini tutorial I put together -

 TUTORIAL FOR DOILY CARD

1.  Cut out two Darling Doilies (Whisper White)
 

2.  Fold over a section at the top of the back doily and adhere to the top of the front doily.

Back

 Front
 
3.   Cut out a circle (sixth largest circle thinlit) and cut a small section from the top for the inside of the Doily Card.
 
 
4.  Stamp an image and sentiment (Butterfly Basics - Crumb Cake, Basic Black) on the inside piece before adhering to the card.


5.  Attach a ribbon (Crumbcake Taffeta) across the centre front and through the holes in the doily pattern.


6.  Cut another circle (6th largest) from Rich Razzleberry Card Stock and a smaller Whisper White circle (5th largest) for the front of the card.  Stamp background images (Butterfly Basics - Crumb Cake, Old Olive) onto the front circle and then emboss (Perfect Polka Dots)


7.  Cut out a butterfly (Butterflies Thinlits Dies - Calypso Coral ) and adhere to the front section.

 
8.  Add some Basic Pearls to the butterfly which have been coloured with a Blendabilities (Rich Razzleberry).
 
Thanks for stopping by,
