' Butterfly' Cards by Katrina Thompson

Hi everyone! 
Today I am sharing a card set created with the Ooh La La collection. 
I have showcased the fabulous Framed Art Deco Butterfly Die Set that is great to mix and coordinate with the variety of patterned papers. With the addition of the Ephemera, Lace and Pearls, we're ready for some gift giving. K x


Firstly, to cut the die pieces!
Cut 2 squares from the paper pictured, 11.3cm. Cut 2 sets of the Framed Butterfly Die Set.
Using the centre piece of one set, cut the Butterfly. 
Put aside the centre piece from the 2nd set for the next card.
We will use 1 outer frame and the butterfly for this card. The 2nd outer frame is spare.
Note: If you centre the butterfly when you cut it you can save that piece for another project too!


Cut a square 12.5cm using the patterned paper pictured below. Cut the frame, off centre as pictured.
The creamy centre piece is going to be inserted into the frame from the set we cut above and the centre piece from above, that we put aside, is going to be inserted into the frame below.
Mix and match!


 Cut a piece of Cinnamon card 14.2cm wide x 28.5 long. Ink the edges in a coordinating colour.
Cut a piece of Kahlua card 12cm square.
Cut out the Happy Birthday greeting from the ephemera and cut 2 layers from the papers pictured in 2mm increments. Ink the edges.
Die cut the 2 mini flourishes in the die set from the Paper Bag cardstock and ink to blend also.


 If you like a sentiment but it may not fit your design, cut and layer the greeting to create your own.

 
Score and fold the Cinnamon card to create a square card base.
Layer the 3 greeting pieces with 3d foam.
Attach the combined die cuts to the Kahlua square and layer the lace around the edges, secured well from behind.


Attach the layered lace panel to the base card, centre the butterfly and attach your greeting and flourishes as pictured. 
Embellish with pearls to finish.
