Enjoy every moment!

Happy Sunday all:-) Finally a card, been making so many layouts lately and I feel like I have been neglecting those of you who actually follow my blog for cards!

The thing was, I don't like to make a card unless I do have a good idea worth sharing, and inspiration was running low... I decided to make a card with this cute butterfly, and I wanted to incorporate a frame. So this was what I came up with.

I used the rain dots background, one of my favourites. I love how cute and tiny they are, perfect for adding that something extra to plain card stock.

I first stamped the butterfly and then marked out the frame, so that the butterfly could be part of the frame (a single layer) . I cut the frame out making sure I didn't snip off bits of my butterfly! Coloured with Copics and sponged in a pink ink onto my frame for a little bit of colour, and I mounted it on this tiny green dot background I stamped:-)

And there is the close up:-)

All Stamps are by Hero Arts ( Traditional butterfly, Rain dots background, Thoughtful messages)

  4. Love this simple, gorgeous card, Michelle! The long frame makes it so special!

  5. I LOVE that this is a one layer card,it's fabulous! The butterfly looks like it just landed on the edge of the frame. You always add some perfect little design genius to your cards and layouts and I'm always so impressed!

  7. This card looks like a frame so I have a question: is there any place to fit a photo?
