Red and Blue Butterfly Landscape

This was a really quick and simple card to make - something I really need at the moment to try and get on top of the list of cards I need to make.

The die is one that I bought at the Newbury Artstamps Show at the start of July - and it was reduced in price so a bit of a bargain.

I started by inking the edges of a panel of the light blue Moroccan Tile paper from the K&Co The Best of K&Co Too paper pad using ColorBox Maroon fluid chalk ink and then attached it to the bottom of a side fold A6 card. A length of cream grosgrain ribbon was then added across the join.


Using my new Marianne Creatables Butterfly 2 die, a butterfly was die cut from red card and added in the top left corner, adhering only the body of the butterfly to the card so the wings are fluttering.

The body of the butterfly was then embellished with large grey and aqua pearls from the Create and Craft carousel.


The sentiment, from the HOTP Sentiments stamp set was added in the bottom right corner using Versafine Crimson Red archival pigment ink.

Here are the challenges I'm entering this card into:
