A host of Butterflies...
A simple to make but complex looking card for today which involves just cutting one die four times to make all the main elements!
I stared by cutting the inner die from the Sue Wilson cascading butterflies die into a piece of deep cocoa foundation card. I then backed this with a pice embossed with the braided vines A4 embossing folder with the pattern highlighted using copper gilding polish.
I framed the background with a set made form the Noble double pierced squares set A and B and mounted it onto a few layers of the tan, papyrus and deep cocoa foundation card to make this 8x8"
Next I cut the cascading butterflies twice from a piece of tan card to give me the tan butterflies . I then simply arranged the butterflies in a cascade across the front by sticking them only in the centres and folded out the wings.
Finally I added bronze 3D pearl accents from cosmic shimmer in the centres of the butterflies.
