Freshly Brewed Projects -Butterflies

Welcome to another Freshly Brewed Projects from the Latte Girls. This week it is all about Butterflies. Who doesn't love butterflies !

I was really spoilt for choice deciding what to use for todays card. Here is what I did.

Feel Goods - Papillon Potpourri -  Simply Stamping with Narelle - available here -

This was such a fun card to make. The background is just the Hardwood stamp, stamped in Mossy Meadow. To get it as pale as I did, I just stamped it off twice onto scrap paper to remove a lot of the ink, then stamped it onto my Whisper White card. 

Next I placed a circle framelit onto the stamped piece of card and drew a pencil line around the inside of it. On a seperate piece of card stock, I stamped the greeting from the Feel Goods stamp set, cut it out using the same circle framelit, then hand drew the stitching using a Stampin' Write Marker. 

Then 12 butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set were stamped. I did 4 each in Blackberry Bliss, Tangelo Twist and Hello Honey. And yes, if you haven't worked it out yet, I was also featuring the retiring in colors for the last time. 

You are probably wondering how I got the butterflies lined up so good. Well that is where the  circle that I drew earlier comes in. I placed the butteflies around the circle so that the end of their wings sat just outside the circle. This way they were all an even distance and formed a perfect circle shape. It would work perfectly with flowers too.

The circle with the greeting on it was attached using dimensionals.

Now that you have seen my card, it is time to see what the other Latte Girls have done.

Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
