Saw a tutorial for making this unusal shaped card here and thought I would have a go at making one.
The design backing paper I have used is from my dear blogging friend Barbara and was among some sheets that I recently won on her blog. This is such a pretty paper that I just had to use it straight away. The card was cut from blue craft paper from my stash and also the pink lace.
I trimmed the front edge of the desgin paper using an edge punch to create the pattern and attached to the base. Butterfly was a die cut twice , glued back to back and then bent into the required shape. I made the little flowers using a small six petal punch and painted them using Luminarte paint pots in matching colours to the paper. I printed out a sentiment in word and die cut into an oval shape and adhered to a larger oval and attached to the front. Lastly I added the wally shrink plastic heart button which I coloured with a blue water colour pencil. Card has now been sent to my Mum who has just come out of hospital and is still very poorly.
