Punched Card

This card measures 5ins x 5ins and is made using a teal coloured card from
Punched Butterfly CradThis card was a bit of an experiment, it started off with whole flower and leaf punch outs and no butterflies,  but it just didn’t come together…. so I halved the flowers and leaves and then layered them round bottom and sides of the card, adding a little doodling and a small clear flat backed gems.
I also ermed and ahhed over adding the Martha Stewart butterflies. punched in Kraft paper …. but in the end went for them as they added a weird sort of contrast that sort of went, if you know what I mean????  The final quirky touch was to have the top butterfly angled in such a way that, when unfolded, it stood proud over the top of the card.  It’s a look I think I would like to experiment more with and incorporates ALL my favourite colours at the moment.
