Abstract Butterflies

My 6th and final project from my recent Abstract/Shapes Papercrafting Class is this abstract butterflies card.

All of the items in this project are from the Annual Catalogue.

I chose the fabulous colour combination of Rococo Rose, Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla.

Using strips of the cardstock, these layer across the card at various points, with the ends shaped as required. For speed, a punch to cut the ends is a much easier option.

It is really quick and easy to make and doesn’t use much cardstock either, so you can make lots from a few sheets. The hardest decision is your colour combination!

Strips of the co-ordinating In Color Ribbon, plus Lace Trim are also added to create more texture.

Butterflies, cut using the Butterfly Duet Punch are stuck together down the centre and the wings curled upwards. Then, a length of Linen Thread is looped round to make the antennae. These add even more texture and add a slightly rustic feel.

The butterflies are stuck onto layered circles, before this section is stuck to the project using Dimensionals. Try to place the Dimensionals onto card, rather than ribbon, as it gives them something firm to attach to.

Finally, some Pearls are dotted around to give a finishing touch.

This abstract butterflies design is definitely one you’ll be seeing a lot more of from me. I’ll be making variations of it in different colours and patterns.

Here are all 6 projects. Do you have a favourite?
