I made this card to go with a gift I sent a blogging friend a while back and haven't shown yet.
I used plain coloured craftcard for the base which I folded so the sides almost met in the middle. The doily came free in a magazine which I cut in half and turned round so that the flat sides were to the edge of the card. I threaded thin ribbon through the doily pattern and attached behind before gluing the doily to the pink card. The butterfly is a Cheery Lyn die
Small Exotic Butterflies #2 DL 113AB.
When you untie the ribbon the card opens p to reveal the message inside. The rose patterned paper is made from Vellum and is by KanBan. (For a company that has ceased trading there is still a surprising amount of their goodies to be found. I got this from Joanna Sheen). The die cut is by Spellbinders Majestic Elements S4-383. Word die is by Britannia.
When I first got these word dies I was a bit disappointed with the size of them but having now used them quite a bit I have fallen in love with them. They are a dream to cut and are not at all fiddly to glue to your page. (I use a fine tip glue pen by Martha Stewart).
