Embossed butterflies

Hello everyone,

I recently attended a training event provided by a fellow SU demontrator, Jules.  Everytime I go to one of Jules training sessions I always come away feeling inspired and motivated to get on with things.  As with all training swaps were a   Now those that know me will tell you that I cannot do anything simple.  I always get "told off" for giving too many colour options with my swaps, but I get bored doing repetitious cards and swaps hence the colour option.  So not to disappoint anyone I did the same this time :), and here they are ......

Here's a close up of one of the swaps.  I've used a variety of DSP from the current catalogue to make the top with matching cardstock as the base.  The very vanilla c/s has been embossed using the new stripe embossing folder and then the corners punched out with the corner punch. 

Die cut emobossed butterflies were then added to the card.  The DSP was folded so that it opened up to reveal a message.  It was kept closed by Linen thread being wrapped around a brad.  The brad was fixed on the top layer of the paper and the  Linen thread attached to the back.

I really enjoyed making these swaps and the "wow" factor that it gives.  The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla card and cut to the shape of the paper.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at my project and would appreciate it if you would leave a comment.  If you would like to purchase any of the items above please do not hesitate to contact me.
