Nature Inspiration

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have enjoyed our nature themed projects this week-- I certainly have loved looking at all the DT girls gorgeous creations! They inspire me every day!

My second nature project is a card and what better papers for a nature project could there be than Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden line?

The base of my card is Bazzill Swiss Dot cardstock and then I have two different layers of the Pink Paislee papers machine stitched to complete the background. I spritzed some doilies (found a big package of them at the dollar store! I love bargains!) with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Sweet Clover to give them a light green, glittery look.


I punched two circles for the center of the doilies and also one to overlap them in the center. For the center circle, I also made a circle frame for the butterfly and popped it up with foam squares. My butterfly is cut from one of the Pink Paislee patterned papers and I cut two of them to give it a little more dimension. After I took my pictures and loaded them, I thought I should have put Stickles around the edge of the butterfly wings so I will be going back to do that!


I finished off my card by embellishing it with some Kaiser Craft pearls, seam binding (Cocoa) bow and a Pink Paislee butterfly charm. Here's a peek at the inside, which I left fairly simply so there is plenty of room to write.

Oh, Jamie, you *know* this speaks to me! Gosh, this is such a beautiful card - I absolutely love the ring/round shapes on the front. They really make me think wedding rings! :)

Cheers,
Susan
