Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Butterflies in shades of green

At my previous Card & (Your) Cuppa sessions, I asked the attendees to tell me what sorts of projects they would like to make. Someone said that they liked greens, so here we have butterflies in shades of green.

My colour combination is Soft Sea Foam, Pretty Peacock and Mint Macaron.

The Soft Sea Foam layer is embossed using the Brick & Mortar Embossing Folder. I definitely don’t use my embossing folders enough.

A length of Linen Thread is then wrapped around this piece to add even more depth. As I’m unable to send stamped images to my class attendees during this time, I am finding lots of different ways to add depth and texture.

Then we have a shape from the Wild Rose Dies, this is cut down at one end. A tip for this shape is to cut it wider, so it hangs slightly over the Soft Sea Foam piece and blends into the Pretty Peacock layer. Sprig Punch Shapes are then glued to the back of the shape before it is added with Dimensionals to raise it up.

The three butterflies in shades of green are then scrunched (to add more texture) and added to the project.

Finally, three Pearls just add a little bit of extra sophistication.

There was enough Linen Thread left over in the kits for the attendees to add a bow if they wanted. Some did and I was thrilled it was some of my more bow-phobic attendees that took the plunge and added one 🙂

If you’d like to join us at a class, then take a look at my Social Isolation Classes page for more details. Also, don’t forget that some products from the Annual and Mini Catalogues are leaving us on 2nd June. Check out the retiring list for full details.

Happy crafting
