Stampin' Up! Australia - Papillon Potpourri - Butterfly Card


A friend at work asked me to make them a card based on this one by Claudia from Ink Paper Love. Claudia's card is really cool....it had different coloured butterflies flying out of a jar and she had created some cool swirly stitching on her card too. My friend at work wanted blue tones to the card so I set about trying to recreate the look and feel of Claudia's original (without having to use any sewing since I'm terrible at that!! :) ). 

Claudia was kind enough to give her blessing for me to publish this CASE'd card to share with you. :)

I used the Hearts a Flutter framelits to make my "jar" out of acetate (window sheet). I used a corner rounder punch to round the corners of the shape and snipped off the end part to make the top of the jar. 

I then just used a Basic Black Marker to draw on my jar. 

The colours of the butterflies are Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Midnight Muse and Baja Breeze. 

My work colleague loved the card! YAY!
