Creatables and Butterflies Card


I haven't used this Marianne Creatables die for a long time, so I decided to use it today. I also wanted to make a card that looked like spring, so I chose greens, yellows and Brilliance Galaxy Gold, which is a very yellow gold.

The Creatables die was cut in white and light green CS, and layered onto darker green, gold mirror card, and a white card. The die was accented and shaded with Brilliance Galaxy Gold, and the outside of the doily was outlined with a metallic gold pen.

The white filigrees in the center are from Spellbinders Marvelous Squares. The butterflies are from the MS Monarch punch. I wish they had been more delicate. I tried some stamped ones, but they weren't delicate enough, and my Cheery Lynn and Spellbinders butterflies were all too large. These were the ones which looked the best. I tried different flowers in the center, and liked this dimensional one from K&Co the best. The butterfly bodies and the pearls are Liquid Pearls.

Beautiful. You did a fantastic job mixing all of those brands of dies, and the punch.

Very pretty, Kathi, very spring like! You are also reminding me that I need to make a St Pat's card!

This is just gorgeous! Wonderful design & love the Brilliance gold--need to get mine out. The Liquid Pearls look great--I need to practice so I can use them on cards leaving the U.S. that I'm trying to keep thinner now. Thanks for the inspiration!
