Today’s Timeless Tuesday Challenge hostess is Cindy Haffner. Her challenge to us is to create something with a butterfly. It can be a die cut, patterned paper with butterflies, embellishment or stamped image. I pulled out Butterflies & Blossoms, one of my favorite Flourishes set along with some of my favorite Spellbinders die to create my sample.

I started by cutting a frame with the second largest Floral Oval Nestabilities and a Classic Oval die out of white cardstock. A piece of Bo Bunny Country Garden paper was cut and embossed with a slightly larger  Classic Oval die. The edges were sanded and a sentiment from Butterflies & Blossoms was stamped in it’s center with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. The oval was adhered behind the frame.

The smaller floral and butterfly image were stamped in Tuxedo Black Ink on white paper, colored with Copic Markers (Flowers: Y00, Y11, Y13, Y15, YR23, YR27, E37   Leaves: YG00, YG01, YG03, G46   Butterfly: Y17, YR15, YR18), cut out and adhered on the lower left and upper right of the frame.

Another piece of Country Garden paper was cut and embossed with a Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched. A piece of Vellum cardstock was cut and embossed with a Lattice Motif die. Green May Arts Ribbon was threaded through the Vellum layer before it was adhered to the patterned paper square. The ribbon was tied into a bow and topped with a button before the sentiment layers were adhered over the Vellum Lattice die cut.

The layers were adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die. Parts of a rhinestone swirl on the top left and lower right finish off the card.

I hope you have time to play. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
