Butterfly Bijou, Butterfly Brilliance, Crafters Companion

Stampin Up Sunday butterfly frame card

This week one of my friends at work left our team for a superb promotion. It’s been an emotional week, as whilst I am really proud of her and wish her well, I am going to miss working with her on a daily basis.

This is the card I made for her.

I decided to stamp the Butterfly Brilliance stamp onto some of the Butterfly dsp and die cut it. Then I used four of the butterflies to make this card.

I created a frame with the Petal Pink cardstock and the background using some very old embossed speciality paper I stumbled across in my stash. I then had two butterflies inside the frame and two on the top.

I gave the frame panel some splatters of white gesso and some shimmer ink to add some fun arty splashes and also inked up the edges using my distress oxides.

I chose a Crafters Companion stamp set for the sentiment and embossed it in gold and punched one end into a pennant. I then added the frame panel to a card made from soft sea foam which I had lightly inked around the edges.

Inside the card I added some strips of the dsp and cardstock I had cut into little pennants and inked and added a little die cut butterfly to finish off.

Really happy with how it came out.

Wishing Abbie all the best and know however much I will miss her, she is doing the right thing.

Happy crafting!
