Second Butterfly

Good evening LIMettes!
I am feeling much more refreshed today, thanks for your wishes :)  I think it will be a couple of weeks before I am 100%, but I'm getting there! :)

Anyway, over the last week I was reminded that I had £5 worth of free downloads on Crafts U Print from when they had their upgrade. So I went for a wander over there and found some wonderful Craft Robo files, one of which has provided the focal point for this card......

These really are fantastic files and anyone who has a Craft Robo, or any other electrical die cutting machine should go take a look at them! Anyway, this is a 2 layer butterfly, the bottom is solid and cut from purple pearlescent card, and the top 'lace effect' layer is cut from lilac pearlescent paper. I then curled each layer to give definition and attached them together to the card. I only stuck them in the middle so when the card is moved, the top wings 'flutter''s very effective!
The border is a Spellbinders (I think) and the sentiment was computer generated and then I glittered the first letters with Butterfly Trails. Finished with a few gems to link everything together and I'm quite pleased with the result! :D

Hope to get some more made this week so see you then!

  11. Hi Lizy, Wow what a stunning card - that butterfly is just wow! I've got a Craft Robo but don't use it at all as I can't get it to do what I want! Re blogger problems, I've swapped to Google Chrome and so far, so good! Sarah

  12. I love everything about this card, the butterfly ofcourse and the wow border. The sentiment font is fab with a touch of glitter.
