D is for Decoupage & Gold

Killed two birds with one with this card, sat and made it Thursday as I needed to send a card to Carole from the card group as it was her birthday Friday... in my defense I thought it was the 14th not the 12th.
I hunted high and low for a piece of acetate with a gold pattern on, which I knew was going to be perfect for the Butterfly challenge but I couldn't find it..... it IS there somewhere! Though I did find the piece of vellum which I used so all in all, not a bad search.

It was a A5 sized vellum sheet with gold butterflies on, so rather than die cutting which I was originally going to do, I simply cut out four of the butterflies, one I folded and creased in the middle to make it stick up when I decoupaged it on top of one of the other butterflies - I used silicon glue to make it stay raised up when stuck on.

Using memento glam gold ink I stamped the greeting on then stuck the butterflies around it, finishing the card off with three little white pearls for the butterfly antennae.

  1. Love these butterflies. Glad the vellum came to the rescue. It is so annoying when you know you have an item and just can't think/find where it is. Thankyou for fluttering into the butterfly garden. Hugs Mrs A.
