Boho Cards by KATRINA THOMPSON

Hello everyone and thankyou for joining with me today for my newest card project.
I have been creating with the Bohemian Bouquet collection, once again displaying the wonderful colour palettes from this collection.
Today I have selected the yellow butterflies as a focus, creating sets of simple layers using the 12x12 papers. These elements can be flipped to the reverse print, changed from portrait to landscape and just a simple movement of the focus piece to a different place on the card will give each card a fresh new look.  K x



Each of these cards are created from a white base 7x10 inches. When scored this makes a card 5x7 inches and gives you a nice amount of space to work in.


Card 1.


The simple movement of the butterfly will change the look of your card. See the photo above and below. Your options are endless!!



Cut a yellow patterned base 11.5cm x 16.5cm. Ink the edges and attach flat to white card.
Cut a flower pattern as pictured 10cm x 15cm. Ink edges and attach with 3d.
Cut part of the border strip with the text and a length of blue patterned print to match. Lay the blue behind the text to create a strip of blue across the top then attach the whole piece to a strip of lace.
Cut 2 flowers and 2 leaves and create 2 sets as pictured. Select 1 butterfly.
Follow the photos to attach your elements or create your own.


Card 2.


Cut a yellow patterned base 11.5cm x 16.5cm. Ink the edges and attach flat to white card.
Cut a flower pattern as pictured 10.5cm x 15.5cm. Ink edges and attach to yellow base.
Cut the greeting out, trim the outer edges and ink. Cut a yellow print to create a 0.5mm border around the greeting. I did cut a white mat initially to back the 2 patterns to help it stand out further but chose not to use it in the end.
Cut 1 flower and 1 leaf and create a set as pictured. Select 1 butterfly.


Cut the barcode strip of the same patterns from a 12x12 and trim a piece to 16.5cm. Lay it on a piece of lace, then on a 2cm strip of white card. Attach to the card 3cm up from the base.
Follow the photos to attach your other elements or create your own combinations.


Card 3.


Cut a yellow patterned base 11.5cm x 16.5cm. Ink the edges and attach flat to white card.
Cut a flower pattern as pictured 9.7cm x 14.5cm. Ink edges and attach to yellow base.
Cut out the greeting and cut a yellow print to create a 5mm border around the greeting. Cut a white panel to create a 3mm border around the yellow. Select 1 butterfly.


Follow the photos to attach your elements or create your own combinations.


The butterflies come as 2 halves which make it easy to attach without any creases through the middle.
