Butterfly in Flight


I used a Memory Box butterfly die to create this card. I used espresso, red, orange and daffodil cardstock, and cut 3 butterflies, inlaying the colorful bits to the espresso panel, and just using the daffodil die cut to give it fluttering wings. The Nestabilities beaded oval die was cut from off-white card, and while still in the die, I colored in the beads with a Copic. The stitched oval die is by GinaMarieDesigns, and the whole card is placed on vanilla cardstock. I will add a sentiment to the inside when it's time to use this card.



Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your day is a good one!

How cool is that butterfly?!! Love how you did it in multiple colors, looks just like a Monarch! Don't think I've ever seen a die like that with all the little pieces. A real awesome card for sure!

Great colors! It reminds me the fun parts of the 70s (funky funky). Overall the card is gorgeous and you have some serious patience to in-lay all those bits back in.
