This next card is one of my favourites and so quick and easy to make. The paper is from the Abrianna Mat Pad matted onto pale blue card stock, with the edges inked with blue ink. I then wrapped purple embroidery thread (3 strands) around it, taping it on the back to secure and placed a butterfly from the gorgeous Abrianna Grand Adhesions pack over the area where the threads crossed.
Two exciting things happening at S J Crafts over the coming week.....
I'll be posting a Giveaway tomorrow!
S J Crafts are putting together a small design team (scrapping & cardmaking!) ~ more details of how to apply coming soon!
I have been busy preparing for the demonstration for this Saturday's Open day and I have just realised that I didn't share the cards from the last Open Day back in July!
These two were my favourites as they are so quick and easy to make!
I used white square card blanks, trimmed a sheet of paper from the Abrianna Pad to size. I love the K & Co Mat pads because they are double sided and at 4.75" X 6.75" the papers are just right for square cards without too much trimming. I just needed to cut 2" off the top and used this strip to punch the butterflies from using the Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch and adhered them with a dot of glue down the centre leaving their wings free. I love how the reverse side of the paper co ordinates beautifully with the background. A gemstone and stickles on each butterfly to finish. Easy!!
The 2nd card was the same but I used the crystal stickles to create a flight trail, stamped a greeting and added 3 gems in the corner. Paper is also from the Abrianna Pad.
