A Bold Butterfly:

Today's card is something I've been wanting to make for a while now, since I saw it on a blog a few weeks back while I was blog surfing (I'm sorry, I just can't remember who it was and I've been backtracking now for quite some time to find you). The card on this unknown blog showcased beautifully the bugs & kisses stamp set, and I thought it was absolutely adorable!

Moving on, I decided to make a similar card using Bold Butterfly...again because I hadn't used it in AGES. The difference with this card, is that when you open it up, you get this delightful little surprise...

I've got flowers and another butterfly on the inside that 'pop up' on this paper spring! The butterflies, to add some bling I've stamped then used my 2 Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds on the outline. The front butterfly, I've also made 3 dimensional, and it lifts off the page. I already know who I'm going to give this card too, I hope she likes it. If you'd like to know how to make this card, this will be the feature card for my October Technique workshop.

Nerine, this is just beautiful. You know I love this set. Did you know that the tutorial on SCS today was the spring card? If not, you're very clever to do your card the same week. I hope you post this on SCS too.
