I don't often make CAS cards... and if I'm honest I had no idea this would end up being one.
You see, I wanted to join in with the latest Butterfly Challenge and I had a rough idea in mind weeks ago when I first saw the 'E' for embossing theme... but I thought I had longer than I did and almost missed the boat altogether.
(Thanks for mentioning it on your blog, Di)!!!
Anyhow, in a last minute 'I've got eleven hours to the deadline' (which realistically means four hours tops to make the card and try and get a decent photo... then zoom off to get daughter from school, hear her news for the day, feed her, etc... Oh yes, and get some washing on, washing put away, prepare and eat my evening meal, etc... That doesn't leave an awful lot of time really. does it?
So like I said, this wasn't going to be a CAS card. It was going to have more layers and embellishments... and initially I had a choice of two designs in mind. But... whilst moving things around I looked and thought 'this looks better like this... Clean and Simple... uncluttered.'
So that's how this card was made.
Minimal supplies used:
Stampin' Up 'Best Blossoms'
Memory Box 'Blissful Butterfly Border'
Cuttlebug 'Tag Team Butterflies' Cut and Emboss Set
Memento (Tsukineko) Ink Pad 'Bamboo Leaves'
Here's the card...
I know Winter is setting in, but I still have room in my life for Butterfly cards. If you do too, maybe you could pop over to the latest Butterfly Challenge and have a go yourself. There's always room there you know... unlike my craft cupboard!!!
